Facel Vega Restorer - Hand painted Facel style wood effect on metal for the Dashboard and other metal interior pieces.

By Simon Lorkin - Classic Dashboards

Simon Lorkin has for several years been offering a restoration for the French Facel Vega car dashboard and interrior trim. It's a car with a unique wood effect that some say isn't a 'real' wood effect so we call it the 'Facel Style'.

Facel Vega cars were manufactured between 1954 and 1964 and are beautiful cars. Simon invested over three weeks of his time to discover and perfect the methodes, coloours and materiels necerssary to produce his version of this unusual effect and is now known in France as the Master Craftsman capable of bringing these dashboards back to their former glory.

"Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have queries about the restoration of your Facel Vega. Visitors are welcome at my restoration workshop in the Normandy countryside (by appointment only please)."

 

 

Depending on the interieur and bodywork colours of your Facel Vega you can choose to have your dashboard restored with a new wood effect 'Lighter' or 'Darker', understanding than in all cases there are never two dashboards exactly the same as the Facel Vega wood effect is painted by hand.

At the top of this photo gallery are Facel Vega dashboards in the 'darker' style et lower down the page in the lighter' style. When we describe the 'darker' style it means with brown nuamces and areas, interspersed throughout the dashboard where as the 'lighter' style doesn't have these and is more unified in colour. The choice is yours.
