1969 Pontiac Farago CF 428 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Paul Farago's resume included work with Dual-Ghia and was a respected engineer and designer. His work impacted designs both in Europe and the United States. Farago had worked with Virgil Exner in developing the Chrysler/Ghia concept cars and was also the chief engineer for the Dual Ghia project. He later designed the Ghia L6.4 built for some of the Hollywood elite.

This very special car was brought about as a result of a special request by John DeLorean while he was head of the Pontiac Motor Division of General Motors. He asked Farago to come up with an exciting car that he could use to tour the world's auto shows and enhance the company's image. Having just left Ghia and setting up shop with Sergio Coggiola, this was the first project for the firm 'Carrozziere Coggiola,' which had opened in Turin in 1966. They would later go on to produce prototypes for many companies, including SAAB, Lancia and Volvo.

The current owner is the nephew of Paul Farago. It is totally original except for a single repaint in the 1980s. It rides on very special experimental Firestone tires and wheels. The C represented Coggiola while the F represented Farago. The 428 represented the engine.
