Sold for $572,000 at 2018 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
Facel S.A. was a French steel-forming manufacturer that had produced bodies for Delahaye, Bentley, and the Ford Comète. With the experience, they set a goal of developing limited-production cars of their own. Their vehicles were limited-production, elegant, and well-appointed grand touring cars fitted with finely crafted leather and accented by aviation-inspired instrumentation They merged French elegance with reliable and powerful American V-8 engines.

In 1962, the company introduced the Facel II. It had panoramic glass, a chiseled hardtop, stacked quad headlamps, and a low profile. It had a handmade tubular chassis, front double-wishbone suspension and a live rear axle. Each Facel II was a bespoke creation powered by a 6.7-liter overhead valve V8 engine fitted with Twin Carter 4-barrel carburetors and producing nearly 400 horsepower.

This particular example features the Pont-à-Mousson four-speed gearbox and Facel coachwork penned by Facel founder Jean Daninos. It has been given a comprehensive restoration that was commissioned by a previous owner, and finished in Cabernet Metallic over a Cream Beige leather interior. The car has power steering, power disc brakes, power windows, dual power radio antennas, and Borrani wire wheels. In 2016 and early 2017, the car received additional work that totaled around $40,000.

This is a rare automobile with only about 22 produced in this configuration.
