1958 Facel Vega FV4 FVS Hemi Borranis
Chassis # 457251 
Motor # TY5-562114 
This car was imported by the Southern Californian franchise agent Hornburg and completed by the factory on the 24th of September 1957. The body/production number is the 246th built since Facel began to produce the 8 cyl. coupés.   These cars were incredibly expensive when new.
The FV4 was the ultimate FVS-Series car before the model was replaced outright by the HK500. This FVS series car carries the chassis number FV4 57-251. The engine number TY5-562114 provides matching numbers to a “Typhoon” 340bhp 354 cubic inch Chrysler Hemi V-8 just as Chrysler used in the 300B letter series with solid lifters and double 4 barrel Carter WCFB carbs. It has the correct style 2 speed Chrysler Powerflite automatic gearbox. power steering. power drum brakes. and comes with the five correct Rudge wire wheels with knock off spinners. This vehicle features a white paint exterior. It was originally silver grey metallic with opulent black leather interior completed with tinted glass. The original interior is remarkably intact.  
This particular model is one of the rarest out of all the FVS's being one of the lowest production numbers manufactured and the last year this model was produced. This car belongs to the first series FV4. This particular vehicle is 1 of only 37 produced and very few are left in the world. The entire car needs restoration. but is largely correct and complete. Virtually all the original parts are intact. including the tool tray. The car was recently serviced. including the carburetors being rebuilt and it started right up immediately with remote fuel. It has strong oil pressure and doesn't smoke. even after a year of sitting. Please look at the video attached. Since we had the intake off. we cleaned it up and painted it. Obviously the rest of the engine compartment needs detailed and serviced. The car though needs a complete restoration is complete from my inspection. It is very sound underneath. There is some rust at the extreme sides of the under carriage but the floors and frame are all solid as seen in the photos and it is a great platform to start from. The doors shut well and the bonnet needs some adjustment.   
The subject example was part of a small collection of an exotic car aficionado. The good doctor had in his stable another Facel- the coveted Facel II. as well as another period Maserati.   He owned this car for approximately 50 years and only recently let her go as he is older and hasn't driven the car in some time. Sold to settle an estate. No Reserve!
