While going through old issues of Wheels magazine I came across an article that hinted at the best-selling models in the world in 1974. This is the oldest official information about the world best-sellers I could get my hands on. And very interestingly it shows that the Toyota Corolla was already the most popular model in the entire world as early as 1974 with the VW Beetle only 4th.
The Renault 12 ranks 6th and the Toyota Corona 9th.
