It had an interior volume of 6.2m^3.
The seats did stow away after launch and there was a lot of room beneath
them. (In fact enough room to add two seats for the "rescue" CSM that was
prepped for Skylab.
The instrument panels did not move. They did not use the hatch to get to
the LEM. There was a tunnel that went through the nose of the capsule.
are good references.
