FACEL VEGA FACELLIA

Coupè, cabriolet.

Small Facel with their own alloy-head twin-cam unit giving 114bhp and 114mph... but, alas a well-founded reputation as a piston burner and travelling oil leak. Early ones were convertibles; hardtop and 2+2 coupès soon followed. They did eventually sort the engine out, so try for a later F2 model, current from early '61.
