Never saw or heard of this one before thanks! Porsche and Studebaker had
a well known engineering relationship in the 50s up until the Packard
merger. Some interesting stories on Porsches approach at developing a
compact for Studebaker with air and water cooled rear-engined V6 designs.
This car however seems to be something different. From the museum web site:
failed experiments by the Studebaker Corporation including the
one-of-a-kind 1959 Lark Porsche. Built by the Curtis-Wright company, a
rear-mounted Porsche engine powers this Lark in what is a fantastic example
of both American ingenuity and resourcefulness.
