Amazing distinction meets absolute rarity with this 1976 Excalibur
Series III Phaeton. And while the classic appearance alone is worth
the price, they made this to be the ideal touring machine of its
time. So don't forget to check out the big block V8 power, luxury
interior, four-wheel disc brakes, fully independent suspension, and
The Excalibur marque is truly a great American affair as celebrated
stylist Brooks Stevens brought together components to make a
neo-classic Mercedes SSK. He didn't cut corners, and that's why you
have genuine exterior exhaust ports, tubular chrome bumpers, and
genuine wire wheels. There were only a few thousand Excaliburs
built over the twenty-year initial run, and less than 180 were
reportedly made in 1976, so you know they took the time to craft
each one individually. There's a true sense of style on this one
that comes from all the details like the dual fender-mounted spare
wheels, proper exterior trunk, and the additional horns up front.
The white paint is a timelessly sophisticated color. This shows all
the right signs of being the original application, and it has the
right look of decades of responsible ownership that has seen less
use averaging about 550 miles annually. It's all about true vintage
elegance. In fact, the fabric-coated phaeton removable top and side
curtains are done in a tasteful light tan for a look that reminds
us of the Leslie Special from The Great Race. And the full racing
tonneau certainly has the grand touring feel, too.
Excalibur fans often look for Series III. It's the sweet spot where
the big motors of the previous generation are still available but
now with extra comforts added. It starts with deeply bolstered
leather bucket seats up front. Plus, you have a plush rear seat, an
AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for the factory air
conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The
Excalibur-branded sports steering wheel is on a tilt/telescopic
column for added comfort, and the dash is dominated by a full SW
gauges package - including a large speedo and tach.
They were able to fit Chevrolet's 454 cubic-inch V8 inside this
classic body. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and
the full package runs like a well-respected upper-class classic.
The big block V8 was borrowed from the Corvette, and they also
fitted its rear end to make this a fully independent suspension
sports car. This also has power steering and four-wheel power disc
brakes. And the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is ideal
for handling the big torque motor while also offering easy
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, brochures,
diagrams, and even a full fitted car cover. This is a rare,
