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 more.
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 automatic shifting.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, brochures, diagrams, and even a full fitted car cover. This is a rare, powerful, and unique machine that is always a conversation starter. So don't miss this premium big block classic. Call today!!!
