Are neo-classic cars with Corvette powered V-8 torque matched with a 4 speed manual your thing? Do you love being the center of attention at stop signs, traffic lights and at car shows? We have true rarity you might want to consider adding to your collection! 

Taking inspiration from the classic pre-war lines of Mercedes-Benz sports cars, the Excalibur Automobile Corporation was established in 1964 by Brooks Stevens in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They produced what was at the time labeled “The Contemporary Classic” automobile, with classic looks and modern reliability. This 1968 model is an example of a Series I Excalibur, one of only 37 Excalibur SSK Roadsters produced in 1968! It comes from a private collector in Colorado who owned this SS Roadster since 1984! It’s finished in red over black wings and the paint and trim are in very good order. Its tubular, chrome bumpers are in great shape, its Super Start battery looks great and the engine bay is very tidy. 

This neoclassic rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/As, size 225/70R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted onto a wire wheel. The rear-mounted spare has the identical set-up. There’s also a luggage rack over the spare tire with enough space for weekend getaway luggage. 

V-8 engines are usually the motive power choice in Excaliburs and this one is no different. It has a 300HP Chevrolet 327 CID V-8. The motor is bolted to a Muncie four-speed manual transmission and a 3.31:1 rear end. There’s a single foglight up front, below a pair of Sparton horns. Inside, the red interior is in overall very good order, while the matching carpet is in good, original shape. A wood-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel helps set off the interior. A full array of gauges is inset in the dash face, which is trimmed in faux wood. The inner door liners match the rest of the interior and there’s a Hurst floor-mounted shifter atop the transmission tunnel. Rounding out the interior is a Blaupunkt AM/FM stereo with a cassette deck mounted on the passenger side of the car. 

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Brooks Stevens was an industrial designer, as well as a graphic designer and stylist. His prolific career spanned several industries as diverse as automobiles and motorcycles to home furnishings and appliances. 

As an automobile designer, Stevens worked at Studebaker during the company's last years. In 1962, he redesigned the Gran Turismo Hawk. 

While at Studebaker, Stevens conceived the idea of building a modern car in the image of a vintage car. A fiberglass replica of a 1927 Mercedes-Benz body was created, then mated to a modified Lark Daytona convertible chassis. Named the Studebaker SS, power was from a supercharged 289 V-8, the same engine available in the Studebaker Avanti. 

Displayed at the New York Auto Show in 1964, the two-seat roadster generated enough interest to begin taking pre-orders for 56 cars. Unfortunately, Studebaker's financial situation worsened, and the South Bend, Indiana factory was forced to close its doors. 

Later in 1964, Stevens and his sons David and William took over the Excalibur's production and formed their own corporation, SS Automobiles Inc. They began building and selling the car as the Excalibur. 

The revised two-seat roadster rode on the same 109" wheelbase as the original concept car. Fiberglass bodies would be a feature on all Excalibur models. 

The Studebaker Lark chassis continued for a while, but the Studebaker engine was replaced with a small-block Chevy V8. Producing 300 horsepower, the 327 Chevy motor was the same as in current Corvettes, making the Excalibur a strong performer. With a 2,100-pound curb weight and standard 3.31 rear axle ratio, acceleration from 0-60 mph was less than six seconds. 

Taking an Excalibur out for a spin is an experience unmatched by most other cars. Get ready for smiles, waves and to answer a lot of questions, even if you’re simply at a red light. Bringing an Excalibur to a local car show or cruise night might just net you the most attention.
