Classic ’59 station wagons: Lark by Studebaker

You’ve never before known wagon work’n’fun like this. Easiest to get in and out of, big headroom, seats eight with rear-facing hideaway seat, full-size cargo space — but far shorter outside than the more expensive wagons.

Turns, parks easily, maneuvers agilely in traffic, smaller (113-inch) wheelbase — a blessing to the long-suffering female family chauffeur.

Routine household chores or a family celebration — it makes no difference to the versatile Plymouth station wagon. This combination of brawn and beauty is the biggest wagon in Plymouth’s field, with 95 cubic feet of cargo room,

It has the longest floor space in its field with tailgate up. The longest wheelbase (122 inches). The most front headroom and legroom.

Nine-passenger models offer a roomy rear-facing third seat; all models feature a roll-down rear window. No wonder Plymouth wagons are more popular than ever!
