    It was designed to, those two companies were its main competitors. You should see the interior, it is even more similar!
     
  4. Re: ITS LIKE A.....

    I read that it was more expensive than a RR, problems with the doors
    that opened while driving, the lack of the B-pillar made it the same
    design as the back doors where "suicidal" doors (check door handle).<!-- Signature -->

    No, it does not look like a Bentley in the slightest form. How dare you disrespect Bentley so.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: Looks like Bently

    Facel Vega's were Bentley's competitor in the 1960's. They had big Chrysler V8's, and were quite fast for 1960. If you ever get a chance to look at the interior, you will see that it is pure Bentley, amazing wood and soft leather.
     
  13. Re: Looks like Bently

    I must disagree it does not look like a Bentley. It will never look like a Bentley.<!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: Looks like Bently

    It is spelled BENTLEY
     
  15. overdrive?

    does anyone know if overdrive was used in any other cars in the late 1950s/early 1960s??<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: overdrive?

    too many make/models to list but yes O.D. was used in the late 50's to early 60's in both automatic and manual vehicles

  18. WTF is this???

    It looks like its from 1930.
     
  19. Re: WTF is this???

    you obviously don't know much about classics !!
     
  20. Re: ITS LIKE A.....

    It doesn't look like RR's or B's, it looks like a Facel Vega!
    I mean that this car has an original look.
     
  21. Re: WTF is this???

    Not at all.
     
  22. looks like a cross between a Bentley and a GTO

    wouldnt you say?
     
  23. Re: WTF is this???

    I read somewhere that the Vega had the De Soto Firedome 4.5 Liter 180HP version of Chrysler's Hemi in it...not bad for a French car with a British finish, and a giant Bentley radiator shell...not too bad of a car
