1958 FACEL-VEGA FV4 TYPHOON COUPE
Finished in classic and desired Bright Red with beautiful Ascot Gray leather interior. This exquisite motorcar is an original California car and comes fitted with nearly every available option. It has recently been frame-off restored with no expense spared. This magnificent motorcar comes with its original Chrysler 300C Dual 4 BBL Hemi engine and 3-speed pushbutton automatic transmission. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the finest examples of this extremely rare model to be found on the market today. For the most astute collector, investor and enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this magnificent motorcar. Bid with confidence – you will not be disappointed in this truly exquisite Facel-Vega. HISTORY OF THE 1958 FACEL-VEGA: 340bhp 354 cubic inch Chrysler “Hemi” V-8 with four-barrel carburetor, independent front suspension, live rear axle and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 105″ Some of the most exciting and flamboyant sports cars in history were produced in Paris and its surrounding areas throughout the first half of the 20th century. Delahaye, Delage, Talbot Lago and Panhard were some of the great marques that called this area home. Unfortunately performance and the French government’s extreme postwar taxation of higher horsepower vehicles did not mix. As a result, French performance vehicles were literally killed off by the mid 1950s. Jean Daninos was an industrialist who employed 2000 workers in his four FACEL factories and manufactured everything from kitchen sinks and office furniture to scooters and combustion chambers for deHavilland and Rolls Royce jet engines. When Panhard cancelled manufacturing plans, Jean saw his opportunity to build a great luxury performance vehicle that would once again bring worldwide prominence to a Paris built car. Of course, due to French taxation he would have to manufacture his Facel cars mostly for export. A foreign powerplant would best insure the success of such an export venture, which led to Daninos selecting the technically superior Chrysler V8 engine. Lance Macklin of HWM racing fame designed the chassis, while M. Brasseur and Daninos himself penned the sexy and cosmopolitan body styling. The Facel exuded opulence from bumper to bumper, and its fit and finish was second to none. Rust resistant stainless steel was used for brightwork, while a lavish passenger cabin was trimmed in the finest woods and leathers. An amazing array of sparkling gauges and switches harkened the driver back to the days of the Duesenberg style airplane inspired instrument panel. The FV4 “Typhoon” example presented here received a body-off-the-frame restoration several years ago, but due to proper storage and little use, it is still in very presentable condition. Prior to restoration, the car retained all of its original major components, just as it does today. The Chrysler “Hemi” engine is strong and the push-button automatic transmission is in fit working order. The lavish interior is covered in seven hides of black leather and yards of Wilton wool. The vendor also reports that this example comes complete with a partial toolkit. This Facel Vega will undoubtedly serve its new owner well as a usable and tasteful driver that exudes a sense of class and distinction. CLICK HERE to watch a CNBC Video on Investing in Classic Cars!

Financing

Finance rates as low as 8.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months


If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
