    This is from Consumer Bulletin magazine, July 1962. Thought some might find the comparisons to the Lark wagon interesting:

    '62 Lark Wagons Cargo Space

    Interesting, the Lark comes up about 3.5 Inches short of most other Compacts in total seat down Cargo Length, but matches the best: Falcon/Comet on Max. Cargo Width, and is a little narrow between the wheelwells on Min. Cargo Width.
    bottom Line: Total Average Cubic Ft. of Cargo space, Lark is 74.0 C.F. better than Valiant/Lancer, Corvair, Tempest, Special, F-85 and way better than Rambler American.

    I think it was a little unfair to toss the AMC Rambler Classic and Ambassidor in with the true Compacts, because of the large Size, and Price differences.
