The car manufacturer Opel needed a vehicle to close the gap between the Kadett and the Rekord. Production of the Ascona model, whose name came from a town in Italian-speaking Switzerland, therefore began in 1970. This mid-size car had an independent body, while the engine came from the Opel Kadett. Three generations of the car were produced during the 18-year production period: The Ascona A was available as a two- and four-door sedan and as a three-door station wagon, each in different equipment lines. The engines ranged from 1.2 to 1.9 litres and produced between 44 kW (60 hp) and 66 kW (90 hp). In 1975, the era of the Ascona B began. The body became larger and the car, now only available as a saloon, was given a more noble design. From 1981, the Generation C was produced, now with front-wheel drive and a transversely mounted engine. For a time, this was the best-selling car in the FRG. Several coachbuilders also modified the two-door notchback saloon into a convertible. In Germany, the Hammond & Thiede convertible, built by Karosseriewerk Voll in Würzburg, was available through the Opel dealer network. Two model updates were made in 1984 and 1986 with new headlights and lamps. In 1988, the Ascona was replaced by the Opel Vectra A.
