As an alternative to the Studebaker Lark, designed by Duncan MacRae, Torino based designer, Pietro Frua, on behalf of the Italian Importer, Renato Bornigia, created two styling exercises during 1960.
The cars were buit by the coach works Carrozzeria Frua, in Torino( 1960 two door, V8) and Carrozzeria Francis Lombardi (1960 Studebaker Italia - four door V8), in Vercelli.
The last one has, of course, our special interest. Here some study prints and a few pictures.

The four door saloon:
The two door coupé:
A mysterious two door coupé? Look at the differences on the front in comparison to the other coupé...
