This late series Facel Vega FVS spent the majority of its life in Texas after being delivered new there. Some 55 years later, it went to auctions in CA and was sold to a couple owners before ending up in Newport Beach. 6 years after its restoration, this FVS shows and drives wonderfully. Coachbuilt details abound in the exterior and interior...the intricate taillights, the trim on the windows to the elaborate dashboard, this is a car built for beauty and for collectors whom appreciate the details in workmanship. The FVS with its Typhoon engine doesn't disappoint.
Handmade in Paris with a powertrain built in Detroit, this was the recipe for small European car builders. Facel made over 10 different models over 10 years and made its mark as a company that built beautiful but strong running cars...and the last series of the FVS, with its dual 4 barrel carburetors, performed amazingly well hitting 0-60 in under 10 seconds! These were bespoke, fashionable cars made for those that wanted a unique, "one-off" statement...a '58 Cadillac or a '58 Rolls just wouldn't do. Today, just as in 1958, this Facel Vega impresses, turns heads and makes a statement.
