General description :
1974 Excalibur Phaeton Series II with Cycle Fenders: One of just 92 Phaetons Built in 1974This 1974 Excalibur Phaeton Series II with desirable Cycle Fenders is an excellent original example with just 30k miles. Brown with tan interior. Production total of Series II Excaliburs was just 375 and in 1974 there were only 92 Phaetons produced. This particular example runs and drives well but would benefit from some paint work at this time. An incredibly solid and honest car that is overall quite presentable. A lot of car for the money.Price: $29,950
Excalibur from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was one of the first "retro" cars introduced as a prototype in 1964. The car was (loosely) styled after the 1928 Mercedes-Benz SSK by Brooks Stevens.
The Excalibur prototype was fitted on a Studebaker chassis and using a 290-horsepower Studebaker 289 V-8. As Studebaker subsequently ceased its operations, ending the availability of its 289 V-8 Excalibur was left without a power plant. General Motors friends Ed Cole and "Bunkie" Knudsen agreed to provide Brooks Stevens with Chevrolet 327 s in 300-bhp Corvette tune, making the light weight Excalibur a strong performer. They also designed a new ladder chassis which had a 2 inch longer wheelbase. The suspension components ere borrowed from the Corvette, as was the four-disc braking system. The Excalibur was born.
