    Italian born Paul Fagaro designed this 1969 Pontiac CF 428 Concept as a styling exercise. At the time of his concept design, he established his own company, Coggiloa, a coach building company in Detroit and wanted to showcase their capability in prototype fabrication.



    Paul Faragos previous job as a Chrysler Engineer meant that he supervised the manufacture of Chrysler Ghia's and production limousines over the 1950's and 1960's. Paul then moved on to run Detroit's Dual Motor Company's manufacturing of Dual Ghia cars. During his time watching over manufacturing, Paul took part in the design process of the Maserati Ghibli, which has a similar appearance to the CF Concept.

    When building the CF Concept, Paul Farago used a 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix as the base. Many parts of the Grand Prix were retained for the concept build. These included the rear lights, door handles, rear window and the interior. Paul also kept in the 428 V8, naturally.



    Today the Farago Pontiac CF Concept is safe and well and in excellent condition. It is now owned by Paul Farago's nephew, Frank Campanale, Orchard Lake, Michigan. The car is regularly seen at many car shows in the Michigan area, including the Concours D'Elegance of America, which are now into their 37th year.
