The HK500 offered here, chassis number HK A6, was originally delivered with the three-speed TorqueFlite gearbox, and it was finished in Dover grey with wire wheels. The car was new delivered to Hyman Ltd in Saint Louis in May 1958 and remained in the United States until the 1990s, when it returned to Europe. The car remained unrestored for many years, until in its present European ownership it was fully restored by the famous French Atelier Jean Claude Tisserand back to original condition, but with a change to the current body and interior colours.
Since the restoration, the car has only covered 5000 km
Facel was a French automobile manufacturer from 1954 to 1964, created by Jean Daninos. The company's first model, the Vega (named after the star), was introduced at the 1954 Paris Auto Show and instantly won acclaim from around the world. The Facel Vegas were expensive and highly exclusive, but they sold well, particularly amongst film stars. Despite its initial success, the company failed after the debut of the mechanically troubled Facellia model. Today, Facel Vegas are cherished for their unique character by car enthusiasts all over the world.
