And for those of you wondering about the connection between Citroen and FACEL....... and before James jumps in.... :wink:

Jean Daninos, the founder and designer of F.A.C.E.L. joined Citroën in 1928 specializing in bodies. He was very much involved in the convertible and coupe versions of the Traction. He left Citroën after its takeover by Michelin and then in 1939 formed his own company. Post-war, after producing bodies for Panhard (the Dyna X) Simca and Ford (France) he bodied a short run of Bentley Crestas to a Farina design plus a rather special one for his wife. This led him into producing his own cars over the period 1954 to 1964.

Not much of the original "barn find" is going to survive if its going to be transformed into something like this :)

Classic and Sportscar do a good coverage on the barn find including a full list of all the vehicles and a link to this youtube video



There's quite a few Delahaye's on the list but only one Maserati so I guess the 2-tone must be a Maserati A6G 2000 Gran Sport Frua!
