For Sale: 1966 Excalibur SSK Roadster in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

The original Excalibur was the brainchild of Studebaker's Brooks Stevens, who took inspiration from the famous Mercedes-Benz SSK and decided to make a more modern interpretation. Originally designed in 1964 over a Studebaker chassis with their 289ci V8, Studebaker's demise forced the project in a different direction and connections ultimately landed the car with Corvette power. Considering the car's 2100 pounds and optional 350 horsepower V8 mated to a 4-speed manual, the car was sensationally quick, able to get to 60 mph in just over five seconds and with a top speed of 160mph! Prices started at $7500, which all but eliminated the average man from buying a new one. Their style and performance have endured as one of the most stylish performance cars of the 1960's, so today offers a very unique opportunity to collectors to own a special antique automobile!

We are very excited to offer this 1966 Excalibur SSK Series I Roadster finished in a sharp combination of Red paint over Black vinyl interior. Powering this Excalibur is Chevrolet's small block 327ci V8 Turbo Jet engine which produces a stout 300 horsepower mated to the desirable Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. This Excalibur roadster features no doors, bicycle fenders, dual side pipe exhaust, Lucas spotlight, Hurst shifter, front disc brakes, chrome bumpers, machine turned dash, leather hood strap, full dash instrumentation with clock, rear mounted spare tire, soft top, tonneau cover and 15" chrome wire spoke wheels wrapped in Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires measuring 215/75R15. These early Excaliburs are highly collectible as they were built for speed and performance, and only produced from 1965-1969. Of the 359 total Series I no-door Roadsters, standard Roadsters with doors & running boards, and Phaetons being made, this example represents one of only 97 No-Door Roadsters ever built. This is chassis #1051, representing the 51st SSK Series I manufactured!

Showing only 10,275 original miles on the odometer it is clear to see this car was cared for very well. Records provided indicate a previous owner purchased this Excalibur in 1990 with receipts and work orders documenting mileage and repairs from 1990 to 2009 when he sold it. The current owner of 12 years has kept the vehicle in great shape while only driving it sparingly while also completing some early repair work in 2009-2010 that included a new Edelbrock carburetor, spark plug set, air filter and voltage regulator. Since its arrival at our museum in May 2023, we have continued to care for this beautiful roadster with replacement front calipers, front brake pads, water pump, fuel filter, engine oil & filter, and installed a new Centerforce clutch kit, throw out bearing, flywheel, clutch master cylinder, and clutch slave hose kit all to ensure this vehicle is 100% road worthy and ready to continue turning heads for many years to come!

These are hard-to-find Excaliburs, pure excitement to drive, and will forever be on the must-have list for astute collectors! They were never kit cars and are rightfully recognized by the Antique Automobile Club of America as factory production vehicles. Thank you for your interest and please contact us directly or schedule a visit to our showroom!
