A luxury car that has links to a financial scam that rocked the nation in the 1970s has emerged for sale 50 years later for over £300,000.<br />
<br />
The Facel Vega II dates back to 1963 but was bought and financed in the early 70s by the notorious fraudsters the 'Southern Organs'.<br />
<br />
Run by conmen Jim 'Sydney' Miller and John Bellord, the criminal organisation ran an elaborate scheme that stole around £6m, including from churches.
