Opal or O-pile? 1974 Opel 1900 Sport Wagon

There have a been a few cars to claim the name “Sport Wagon” over the years, including Buick’s V8 powered SportWagon, and VW’s turbo-hatch SportWagen, but today we’ve got the black sheep of the Sporty-Wagony family…the Opel Sport Wagon. What exactly was sporty about the Opel Ascona A based wagon that was badged as an Opel and sold at Buick dealers on 1974? With a 90 horsepower cam-in-head inline-4, the Sport Wagon was more wagon and less sport, but at least this Opel at a Buick dealer wasn’t a Japanese built Isuzu Gemini.
