Description

The Excalibur from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was a car styled after the 1928 Mercedes-Benz SSK by Brooks Stevens for Studebaker. Stevens subsequently formed a company to manufacture and market the cars which were conventional under their styling. A prototype premiered at car shows in 1964 fitted on a Studebaker chassis and using a 290-horsepower Studebaker 289ci V8. Studebaker subsequently ceased operations, ending the availability of its 289ci V8 so General Motors agreed to provide a Chevrolet 327ci in 300bhp Corvette tune, making the 2100-pound Excalibur a strong performer. With acceleration from 0-60mph taking less than five seconds and projected top speed was 160mph, the Excalibur was not for the faint hearted.

This 1983 Phaeton IV model benefits from a 4998cc engine and was imported from the USA in 1991. Presented in Pure White with striking chrome work and an impressive red leather interior, the car comes to auction with a V5C registration document and a removable hardtop. The look of this example is enhanced by wire wheels, a split front windscreen and the classic side mounted spare wheel. It is easy to see why previous owners of this head turning marque have included Frank Sinatra, Steve McQueen and Dean Martin. Offered with a very competitive estimate, this rare piece of motoring will certainly stand you out from the crowd and that tuneful V8 is bound to make you and passengers grin from ear to ear.
