The Facel II is the ultimate expression of Jean Daninos' vision of the great gran turismo combination of European handling and road holding, French coachwork design by Daninos and the powerful, reliable V-8 powertrains from Chrysler. Introduced in 1962 and in production for only three years, just 136 were built before ruinous French automobile taxation forced Facel to cease operations. The vertically stacked quad headlights of the Facel II may be the most attractive rendering of this design theme augmented by the Facel II's rectangular center grille and vertically stacked oblong side grilles. This example (production number 137) has been a California car for at least the last 25 years and was restored there some 15 years ago. It rides on rebuilt Borrani wire wheels, has power from Chrysler's big 413 cubic inch engine driving through a TorqueFlite automatic transmission and is equipped with power steering, power brakes and power windows. It is totally correct and stock including the correct air cleaner and other unusual features with the exception of an upgraded stereo with CD player. It is evident that it has been driven since the restoration but is still extremely presentable, attractive and drives extremely well. The Facel II is the most expensive, most rare, most highly developed and most desirable of all Facel Vegas. This is an unusually well-kept example that will reward its next owner with exclusivity, style and performance.
