Facel Vega Excellence For Sale (1958)

Built as one of the first Facel Vega Excellences, this restored and reliable car, complete with history and documentation, is now for sale. During the 1950’s Facel Vega became known as a manufacturer of luxurious and trustworthy automobiles. After the successes of the Facel Vega FV and HK500 models, 1958 saw the birth of an even bigger and more exclusive model. Although the model’s prototype was already launched at the 1956 Paris Salon, it took until October 1958 when the first Excellences were ready for delivery. The Excellence was presented as a true ‘diplomat car’: (French) ministers and diplomats would finally have the opportunity to be driven around in a French made automobile that matched their position and prestige. Other famous customers were the King of Morocco, the President of Mexico, actress Ava Gardner and many industrial tycoons worldwide. With its 5.9 liter engine, automatic transmission and a top speed of 200 km/h, the Excellence was a strong and powerful car. Most notable of course, is its pillarless saloon with the ‘suicide doors’. This made stepping in and out of an Excellence not only easy and graceful, but also offered the occasional man on the street a glimpse of the car’s beautiful interior, with its mock walnut dashboard, chrome handles, electric windows and leather seats. The car in our sales collection is an early one; from the 134 ‘Ex 1’ models, this is number 14, produced between October and December 1958. The car, blue with beige interior, belonged to a wealthy French industrialist. In 2006 the car was bought by its present owner and registered in Germany. Between 2006-2008 the car was restored, getting a new paint job, a complete new beige leather interior. Technically, the car is completely checked and brought back in good condition. Engine, gear box and rear axle are fully overhauled. In total, only around 97 cars of this model believed to be still existing. This restored model, with complete history and documentation, is hoping to welcome its seventh owner since 1958 soon! Feel free to give us a call or send us an e-mail for further information.
