        Or sitting in an optional third seat...

          Studebaker Canada ad to keep the Francophones in La Belle Provence happy.[:0]

          Roughly translated, using my long dormant high school French(Parisian). French Canadian French is not necessarily the same.

          It says:

          above the wagon

          All beautiful
          All new
          The Lark for 1960

          main text under the wagon

          The all new Lark 4 door station wagon
          For work or pleasure
          Accomodate up to 8 passengers if desired, with the rear facing third seat
          Large doors (used this way commodes means easy probably a reference to ease of entry)
          44 inch inch wide tailgate
          Transport large loads; the seats fold down creating a flat spacious floor
          An easy to handle automobile as only the Lark can be

          Proven by 750 million miles (driven by) satisfied motorists

          Done easily, done well(very loose translation[:I]) in a Lark by Studebaker V8 or 6

          I think the body style illustrations are self explanatory.

          Personally, I like the word familale. Has a nicer ring to it than station wagon.[^]

          Hope this helps.

            Terry, I believe, "Portieres larges et commodes," would better translate to, 'Large and convienent doors,' or, 'Large and accomodating doors.' Commodes, in the Quebequois dialect, and this context, would more likely mean convienent or accomodating. However, I must also confess to a Parisian dialect. Working with the Quebequois used to drive me nutz!

            I also think Familysedan sounds a lot nicer than Stationwagon. At least they didn't stick with Stationhack.[xx(]

              "Commodes" probably means "convenient" if this is a more-or-less-direct translation...I remember hearing the '60 Lark jingle, the wagon-centred part of the "lyrics" went "the newwwwww Lark wagon, with four convenient doors"...

              Neat ad.

                Even then....it would be a tight fit 3 across. Of the 8 in the car, 4 better be kids.

                      Thanks for the help translating, everyone! We grew up with more Spanish than French here in the Southwest.
