Rare 1960 Facel Vega Facellia Coupe
This original 1960 Facel Vega Facellia Coupe is a rare barn-find that's been patiently awaiting restoration for many years. Blue with black interior. It's been sitting in barn storage as part of a long-lost collection. Highly collectible and a project well-worth the effort. With the Facellia, Facel Vega wanted to show they could do sporty and it was supposed to be targeted at the Mercedes-Benz 190SL, Porsche 356B, and Alfa Giulietta. Like the Mercedes-Benz 190SL, its styling borrowed heavily and effectively from the companys more expensive products. The square central grille with flanking sub-grilles, vertical lamp clusters and long, straight body lines came from the coachwork of the HK500. Available as a coupe, cabriolet or 2+2 and intended as a volume sports car that would bring financial stability and less reliance on high-end products. The Facellia debuted at the 1959 Paris Motor Show. Just 1,045 Facellias were ever produced.
