French registration title The Facel Vega Excellence has a special place, with its bodywork: a sleek, low-slung saloon, as luxurious as a Bentley and as fast as a Jaguar, thanks to its powerful and reliable American engine; between 1958 and 1964, just 145 units of the Series 1 Excellence and 8 of the Series 2 were built The car which we are offering is a series 1 model, which still had pointed tailfins and a panoramic windscreen, typical of the 1960s According to the information provided by the Amicale Facel, the car was delivered new in the United States to the agent Peter Satori on 29 January 1961, finished in the unusual shade of Carrera green with a grey leather interior (ref. 3230) and fitted with the options of tinted glass with an even tint, Mitchell air-conditioning and rear heating; it returned to Europe in the 1990s and was the property of a Dutch owner from 1996 to 2003 and then of a French collector in the Yvelines from 2003 to 2012 Fitted with automatic transmission and power steering, its condition is satisfying but not beyond reproach; the paintwork was redone a few years ago, and the various body components appear to be in good condition, with no signs of impact, the interior is complete and in generally satisfactory condition Finally, although the wiring loom seems to be in good order, the motors for the electric windows will need to be checked and possibly replaced; one of a kind on the road in the 1960s, a symbol of French excellence, the Excellence truly lives up to its name!
