FACEL VEGA FACEL III

Coupè, cabriolet.

If you want a ragtop Facel, you'll have to choose the small car. This one's reliable, thanks to its twin-carb Volvo P1800 engine. On 108bhp it's not much slower than a Facellia, but it's heavier and the handling suffers. Seldom seen in Britain. Its development, the Facel 6 with small-bore Austin-Healey 3000 unit (32 made) was not imported.
