Vehicle Description

One of only 15 Roadsters produced in 1978! An outstanding, low mileage original example!

Created by industrial designer, Brook Stevens, who was responsible for innovations spanning some 60 years! With his automobile passion and career with Studebaker, he designed his own vehicle along with his two sons in the early 1960's, and later established Excalibur Automobile Corp located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. These beautifully crafted cars are completely factory built, never sold or produced in "kit" form. Their bodies where made of hand-laid fiberglass that was twice the thickness of a Corvette making them extra strong, with aluminum hood panels. Using only new components, modern drive train & chassis, and styling borrowed from the rare Mercedes SSK, these cars were an instant success!

We are delighted to offer this gorgeous 1978 Excalibur Series III Roadster finished in Gloss Black over Gray Leather interior with black accent piping! These Series III examples are designed on top of sporty chassis providing 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes. Power comes from its factory-appointed Chevrolet 454ci High-Output V8 engine, Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission, and 2.73 Posi-Traction rear end! The option and feature list is quite long for this impressive car. They include Mark IV style air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, leather wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel, heater & defrost, full VDO instrumentation, reclining front seats, cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering column, rear mounted trunk, dual side mounts with hard covers, running boards, 15" chrome Borani wire spoke wheels (6) wrapped in Michelin 1" white wall radial tires, upgraded Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio, Plexiglas wind wings, fog lamps, functional air horns, coco floor mats, and stainless steel side-exit dual exhaust!

Our Excalibur Roadster has traveled just 19,448 total miles! Hailing from it former Clute, Texas owner of the past 26 years, it is remarkably well kept and shows only minor indications of being driven at all! Complete with the original removable hard top with soft cover, side curtains, and formal tonneau cover! All interior features and gauges are working including the air conditioning! This is 1 of 263 Excaliburs produced in 1978, and one of just 15 Roadsters! And as of 2007 became eligible for AACA 2nd generation classification judging! This will be a very difficult car to replace on our showroom as they just don't come to market very often! Please feel free to call with additional questions or to schedule a time to view this marvelous vehicle!
