The first question that Monte Groen from the Frisian Hantum asked when he received a tip about the sale of an Opel Ascona 16S in sublime: “Will I buy the Opel for daily transport or 'for it there' as an old-timer for nice relaxing? trips? " 

That question was justified because the seller indicated that the car was cherished. No rides in the rain, with every smear the cleaning cloth over it, always slept inside. No humid conditions, he slept in a warm garage and of course never no salt, winter rides were out of the question. 

The decision was made quickly, because who is not affected by the special appearance of a classic car? 

The first owner owned the Opel Ascona from 1978 to 1998. After which the second owner Monte Groen owns it until today. The entire history of this 40 senior citizen is known. The counter is now at 90.000 km, hardly 2300 km per year. 

The photo clearly shows that we are dealing here with pure beauty, so museum quality. The great enjoyment of the property continues for this Opel Ascona will no longer leave the beautiful town in North-East Friesland. (Dirk de Jong)

  1. I had a lot of fun with the restoration of and driving a B Ascona 1.9 from 1980. Black, 7J ATS, orange Koni's all around, lowered, tinted glass and a lead base ...... ate rear tires and petrol.
    I would like to do it again, but I never did it again!

  2. Green is good !!
    That is why this Ascona is greener than many e-cars, if not all e-cars. 😜
    Is that a Manta who looks around with a headlight?
