Typhoon inside: 1958 Facel Vega FV4

ScreenShot001

The 1958 saw the birth of the FV4, the most powerful Facel Vega ever produced as it was equipped with a 383 C.I. V8 Chrysler engine also called “Typhoon”.

Only 85 of these cars were built in 1958 so this barn find is truly a rare car; moreover this is the first time we see this model for sale painted in white. It looks more than “tired” but it has nice features like the tobacco interior and the Robergel wheels.

The seller says that this car has only 46,000 miles from new, but that’s not much important as this car needs to be disassembled bolt by bolt and then restored: this will cost a lot of money as, apart from the engine, everything on this car is expensive. Find it for sale here in Murrysville, PA, with bidding at $35,000 and reserve not met.
