Facel Vega Excellence Series 2
In 1961 the Excellence got it’s first and only considerable facelift in which the car was modernised according to the periods fashion. One can argue whether this was for the best. Again the engine was replaced with another Chrysler version: the 6.3 Liter V8 with a staggering 390HP. Besides some technical updates, there were significant cosmetical updates as the changed rear without the distinct tailfins and removal of the typical Facel Vega panoramic windshield. Although the EX2 was offered from 1961 to 1964, only eight cars have been sold until the demise of the Facel Vega Company.
