It's like a family car with a room on the back. Big, accessible spaciousness combined with small car economy makes this the greatest value-for-money station wagon available. Counter-balanced rear door opens with a featherlight touch. Comfort for a family of five -- or, with the rear seat folded flat, 54 cu. ft. of space. The biggest wagon in its class. Reliable 69 b.h.p. engine with five bearing crankshaft gives you all the pull you'll ever need -- and you'll still have power to spare.
