1969 Pontiac Farago CF in 1:43 scale by Autocult


This is the 1969 Pontiac Farago in 1:43 scale by Auto Cult. 

Paul Farago, a Detroit-resident Italian-born mechanic, stylist, racer and car builder, was a Chrysler Engineer and friend of Virgil Exner. He supervised construction of the Chrysler Ghia prototypes and production limousines during the '50s and '60s, and even ran the Dual Motor Company in Detroit, which manufactured the Dual-Ghia cars. In 1969 he designed and built this concept car on Pontiac Grand Prix mechanicals to showcase the capabilities of Carrozzeria Coggiola in prototype fabrication. Farago assisted with the design of the Maserati Ghibli, and that car's long-hood, short-deck proportions are evident here. The vents on the hood had flaps below that closed above 40 mph to improve aerodynamics.
