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. All cars were built on custom steel frames and utilized Chevrolet Corvette drive train and suspension. Then company Vice President William Stevens told the New York Times in 1975 that their product was for the man or woman who wants a fun machine with antique class. At its peak Excalibur was the fourth largest automobile manufacture in the United States and the company produced a little over 3,200 cars between 1965 and 1989. Their quality and class attracted numerous famous owners including Roberto Duran, Dick Van Dyke, Tony Curtis, Shirley Jones, Sonny and Cher, Dean Martin, Jackie Gleason, Paul Harvey, Jay Leno, Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Foreman, and numerous more. The Series IV automobiles debuted in 1980 and were the first Excaliburs to incorporate glass side windows, integrated trunk and power convertible top for the Phaeton and Roadster models. The Series IV was also the first to receive a full design face lift. While the previous Series I and II cars evoked the lines of the classic SS and SSK Mercedes-Benz race cars, the Series IVs appearance was attributed to the 500K/540K supercharged Mercedes-Benz of the mid to late 1930s. The 1982 Excalibur Series IV Roadster featured here is finished in stunning all black with an impeccable Caramel tan interior and black convertible top.
