1959 Fa­cel Vega HK500

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Even in its shabby barn-find con­di­tion it was still easy to be se­duced by this HK500 un­der the NEC spot­lights. A UK-mar­ket car, it had long been off the road and be­fore it re­turned, would re­quire a fan­tas­tic amount to sort the body be­fore paint­ing, let alone start­ing the in­te­rior and the me­chan­i­cals. The ma­jor plus point was the com­plete­ness, but pun­ters were surely won­der­ing just what the met­al­work was like un­der the thick paint. The in­te­rior was com­plete but again, by need­ing a full makeover, would have kept a trim­mer busy for weeks. Fac­tor in the me­chan­i­cal work likely to be in­volved and this was no easy task, but find­ing a UK-mar­ket HK500 is hardly easy and Lot No 348 was a truly de­serv­ing pro­ject.
