1964 Facel Vega Facel 6

The Facel 6 was manufactured from 1963 to 64, and was the last model produced by Facel Vega. The Facel 6 was designed to be the in between of the 8-cylinder Facel 2 and the 4-cylinder Facel 3, equipped with a BMC 6-cylinder with a 150 horsepower and a top speed of 120 mph. The Facel 6 and Facel 3 shared a similar appearance but the 6 had a larger more hood to accommodate the larger engine. Available in 2+2 coupe, coach 4-seater, and cabriolet 2-seater, with standard leather seating. This was Facel Vegas last attempt to save the business, which ultimately fell short as they ceased manufacturing in 1964.

Facel S.A began as French steel furniture and component manufacturer in 1939, originally founded to supply steel aircraft components for military mad by Bronzavia Industry. Following the end of World War II Facel looked to expand its business as the need for military aircrafts became less prominent. In 1948 a luxury car division was established at Facel, initially building bodies for Panhard, Delahaye, and Simca. Establishing their own brand of car, the Facel Vega in 1954. Known for their expensive price tag and exclusiveness, right after their release in 1954 they were instantly a hit amongst the rich and famous.

Although the glory did not last long after in 1960 an attempt to design a mass-produced all-French sports car to compete with Alfa Romeo. But after an extremely flawed engine attempt that could not be recovered, even by third party help the engine was scrapped. Jean Daninos the then president resigned in 1961, after the company began facing extreme financial problems. Even after attempts to fix their engine problems and restore costumer confidence the effort was far too short. Production of cars stopped in 1963, and the business lost its financial support and went under in 1964.
