Bingo. This is a 1960 Facel Vega Excellence. Though built in France, the Facel Vega used a Chrysler big block engine. The 4-speed manual transmission built in France by Facel Vega for use in some models was imported by Chrysler in 1960 for use in the 300F "Special," of which only a handful were built.
