21 foot, 12-Passenger Station Wagon (Mar, 1954)

While it makes a certain sense for the president of a company that makes hearses to drive a station wagon I really wish he’d drove a tricked out hearse.

There’s Lots of Station Wagon in this 21-foot, 12-passenger job in which rear-seat occupants ride sitting backwards. Seats and walls are covered with two-tone leather. The carpeting is inch-thick, turquoise wool chenille. The car is air-conditioned, and recessed in one wall is a completely fitted beverage cabinet.

MI Tests the VW Station Wagon

Call it a Kombi, a van or a bus, it’s actually the greatest thing of its kind, says Uncle Tom.

By Tom McCahill

THE greatest in the world would be one way of describing the Volkswagen station wagon—if there was anything around to compare it with. Actually, it’s strictly a one-of-a-kind deal, like striped hair or a six-legged horse. It is the only station wagon I have ever seen that has enough up-and-down room and forward-and-aft space to take the station with you —if you want to.
