    When you think of station wagons from the s, an image of the Opel probably isn't the first thing that pops into your head, right? That's perfectly fine with Gary Farias, who prefers his daily drivers to be less than immediately recognizable by most of the motoring public.

    Sold as the Opel in the U. Offering a variety of body styles coupled with reliable engines and handsome, modern looks, the Ascona A became the mid-range model between the full-size Opel Rekord and the compact Opel Kadett. In addition to a three-door wagon, the Ascona was also offered in two- and four-door sedan form, and came equipped with a trio of efficient inline-four engines, with displacement ranging from 1.

    As we climb in, we decide to ask Farias where he managed to find this example. So he had wagons, and he called me up and chatted, and he said 'I've got two wagons for sale, you want to come down and take a look at them? So I went up there and looked at it, and it started right up, but it was running rough and the brakes weren't working.

    Not a bad deal, as not only did Farias get a twofer, he also received a discount on the spot that I am sure we'd all like to receive as we're haggling over a car. Only in Farias' case, the seller's counteroffer was in a direction that most of us just aren't used to, to say the least.

    Engine bay of the , featuring the 1. So I finally started looking into it, and when they replaced the lifters they used some from a small block Chevy. So they had the hole in the center for the oil to go up to the pushrod to get to the rockers, the Opel one is solid 'cause it's just a ball that rotates in there, and what had happened was that it had rotated over that hole in the lifter and it wore a hole in the rocker arm, and the rocker arm moved, and the oil just squirted out and lost the oil pressure.

    So much for the most reputable rebuilder in New Jersey! Back home in Germany, the Ascona was a solid seller from the start, and received an update in , with the facelifted model being known as the Ascona B. Part of the problem was Opel's positioning in the U. Opel didn't offer a full lineup in the U. Curiously enough, the Ascona B was sold as the Chevrolet Ascona in South Africa, an interesting marketing quirk that later saw the Opel Senator sold under the bowtie badge as well.

    Needless to say, these early captive import branding exercises needed some ironing out, and perhaps a flow chart or two. But by General Motors, perhaps sensing that its continued use of the Opel name stretched the American car buying public's patience past its breaking point, decided that it was about time for this movie to end. In fact, three of his cars will be appearing in that film, alongside his red Opel GT Coupe and his Opel Olympia sedan, which will surely provide excellent car-spotting opportunities on the Internet Movie Car Database for years to come as commenters will debate the odds of three vintage Opels all appearing in the same American film.

    Having removed the engine and the transmission, Farias had measured the cuts in the firewall that needed to be made to shoehorn the large Senator B engine, and was about to start cutting when the phone rang, with the movie studio telling him that they needed the wagon. Farias still plans to go through with the engine swap, and having taken a ride in the Opel Senator, we can vouch firsthand for the smoothness of the engine.
