For Sale: 1981 Excalibur Roadster in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale proudly presents this glamorous 1981 Excalibur Roadster in ivory and burgundy interior. Commissioned by Studebaker, The original Excalibur automobile was designed in 1963 to be a recreation of the late 20's Mercedes-Benz SSK. The Excalibur Automobile Corp became its own entity when Studebaker feared poor public reception for attempting to copy Mercedes. Several different models of Excalibur have been produced throughout its 3-decade span, including the Phaeton, the Royal, and the Roadster. Referred to as "The car of the stars", the Excalibur is noted for being owned by a number of celebrities including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Gleason, and Ronald Reagan, to name a few. This Roadster is equipped with its factory Chevy 305 CID v8 engine. General Motors' answer to fuel efficiency in the form of 8 cylinders. The famous GM engine found in Camaros, Corvettes, and Trans Ams of the era. The transmission is a 3-speed automatic. Hard to picture anyone having to shift gears in a car this luxurious. The ivory paint is contrasted beautifully with a burgundy (more on the purple side) leather interior. Paint looks clean all around, and the interior does not disappoint! The Roadster has both a removal hard top, and a power assisted soft-top. On the tip of the hood sits the Excalibur's sword ornament. Not a horse, nor a cat, nor a bull, but a sword. Quite the statement.
