Ford Comète Cabriolet V8 “Monte Carlo”
The rarest Comète on this planet

With only two Cabriolets built in period, the Ford Comète Cabriolet is an absolute scarce gem. The example we offer for sale here is even more special. During a top notch restoration a Comète Coupé was rebuilt with a custom made soft top and bigger Flathead Ford V8. Now it has the performance of the faster Comète Monte Carlo and this fact sets it apart from all other French Fords with an open roof. There are so many links to our own Facel Vega FV2B Cabriolet {link: https://www.facelvegaconvertible.com/}, that we really appreciate this one-of-a-kind Ford. And the parallels with Facel don’t stop there.

First of all, Facel-Métallon created each Comète’s bodywork. Stabilimenti Farina designed it. It was a collaboration and the prototype was even named Facel-Farina before Ford SAF was convinced to go along in this joint venture. You could say, this bespoke cabriolet is a tribute to not just Facel, but also to Giovanni Farina, the founder of Stabilimenti Farina, and elder brother of Battista “Pinin” Farina who learned the trade at his brother’s company. The great Italian coachbuilders/designers Boano, Frua, Michelotti and Vignale also started their careers at Stabilimenti Farina. Just like at Carrozzeria Pininfarina the designers didn’t get all the credits for their designs. This was part of the business strategy to keep the Farina name on top of the ballgame and it’s easy to understand why so many designers founded their own company after they’d learnt the trade. This approach, with full focus on the company brand instead of individual designers, helped to grow business, but in 1953 Stabilimenti Farina was absorbed into the by then much larger Carrozzeria Pininfarina. 1953 happens to be the year of birth for the Comète we show here. One fine coincidence.

Pininfarina used the same strategy, but got the bigger clients, like Ferrari. Pininfarina also designed cars like the Cisitalia 202 and Simca 8 Sport. Stabilimenti Farina based the Comète design on the successful designs their brother company started. Facel built the Farina designed Simca Sport models already, but the Ford Comète assignment allowed Jean Daninos to take his company to the next level. While the Comète was even more refined than the Simca Sport, the Comète project offered Daninos several priceless opportunities. First of all the new industrial experience with proper coachbuilding fabrication techniques would help him to realize the later Facel-Vega car brand. Two-tone paint jobs on the Ford could set Facel at the same level of famous French pre-war top-class coachbuilders. Something that never would have occurred with Facel’s other clients. Facel worked for companies like Delage, Vespa and Simca. These easier experiences helped to expand quickly with the implemented Italian craftsmanship methodes.
