Facel Vega Facellias in Pasadena Circa 1961

This picture comes to Jalopnik by way of our pal Scott via archivist superstar Charles Phoenix who scanned it out of a copy of the Los Angeles Times from 1961 then gave to Scott who gave it to us and swallowed the spider that ate the fly. What's a Facellia? A watered down Facel Vega. The Facellia is to the HK500 as the 190 SL is to the 300 SL. Smaller. Cheaper. Weaker. Got it? Good. Bigger pic right here.
