Facel S.A., a specialist body-building company, produced the Vega as its first car. The luxury of a Rolls-Royce with reliable mechanics. It was developed in 1959 into the HK500 with a bigger 6.3-litre Chrysler engine becoming very popular in Britain. Also in 1959 the Facellia was introduced but unfortunately the Pont-a-Mousson, twin-cam unit was not so good. Early cars holed pistons. The F2 was much improved and the company announced it would replace problem engines. To restore confidence the company went to Volvo for the Facel III. Finally the Facel 6 was introduced with the Austin Healey 3000 engine but only 26 were made, the company going into liquidation at the end of 1964. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, used car reports, buying second hand, new model introductions, long terms tests, history. Models covered include: FVS, HK500. Excellence, Vega Sport, Facellia, GT CoupT, Facellia 1600, F2S. Facel II, Facel III CoupT.
