1961 Facel-Vega HK500 Coupe For Sale

Jean Daninos owned Forges et Ateliers de Construcion d'Eure et de Loire in Paris, making machine tools before the war but afterword concentrating on metal office furniture and domestic cabinets while also subcontracting parts for French automobile manufacturers. In 1950 Facel, as the company was known, displayed a beautiful, refined coupe body on a Bentley Mark VI chassis, then a similar coupe on the Simca Vendome platform. They were the precursors to the Facel Vega which was introduced in 1954 with Chrysler Corporation V8 power and Torqueflite transmission. It was the first of the post-WWII Euro-American hybrids, and it remained in production into the early 60's. Total production of the many Chrysler V8 powered Facels has never been established, but it is probably under 1,000. Their reputation for design, style, performance and quality has encouraged their survival, as this example shows. Titled as a 1961, it is powered by Chrysler's 383 Wedge V-8 similar to the Chrysler Saratoga which was rated 326 horsepower. The TorqueFlite automatic transmission is deservedly famous for its performance and reliability. Finished in metallic maroon with a black painted roof, it is upholstered in brown leather and has chrome wire wheels with Michelin blackwall radial tires, power brakes and power steering. This 1961 Facel Vega HK500 has always been maintained, receiving paint, upholstery and other attention as needed during its life. It has never needed a full restoration and is in good running and driving condition with a straight, solid body. There are some paint flaws and dings in the bumpers and the upholstery has developed a pleasing patina which invites further use free from concern about wear. It’s a good looking driver but not a fully restored car. It is a car that begs to be driven, exactly as Jean Daninos intended over a half century ago. $115,000.00 US
