Hardtop Coupe
Chassis #: FVSNY253
Sold for $200,750 at 2014 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Arizona.
Over the span of a decade, the Facel Company created 10 different short series of models with Chrysler-sourced eight-cylinder engines. They were all luxury, grand touring cars that were popular with a jet-setting crowd on both sides of the Atlantic.

This particular Series 4 Sport Coupe is finished in correct radiant silver metallic paint with a red leather interior. It was one of seven ordered by New York-based importer Max Hoffman in late 1957. It was assembled in October of that year and delivered new, in 1958, with chrome wire wheels that had knock-off spinner caps and tinted glass. The car is very original and still retains its original, matching numbers powertrain. It has its correct tool kit, jack and spare tire.

This preserved example won Best in Class at the 2013 Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance.
