1964 Facel Vega Facel III

The Facel Vega Facel III was a French luxury car built by Facel from 1963 to 1964.

It replaced the Facel II and was powered by a 1780cc Volvo in-line four engine, which provided ample performance for most owners despite the Facel II having a V8.

The Facel III was quite successful, but Facel were in financial trouble when it came out and by 1964 saw the end of the Facel company.

Some performance figures for the car: 0-60 mph - 11.7 secs; top speed - 115 mph; power 108 bhp; mpg - 18.4.
