Amazing distinction meets absolute rarity with this 1978 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 dont forget to check out the big block V8 power, luxury A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, fully independent suspension, and more. And did we mention that this is a celebrity in all on its / brbr 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 didnt cut corners, and thats 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 270 were reported made in 1978, so you know they took the time to craft each one individually. Theres a true sense of style on this one that comes from all the details like the dual fender-mounted spare wheels and the additional horns up front. White is always a sophisticated color to have on such a standout machine, and all the gold pinstriping adds to this premium feeling. And if you must drive in wet weather, the full roof and side curtains have the proper classic elegance. If this example looks familiar, thats because it was used by Corbin Bernsen in the movie Major League. Theres even documentation like the movie rental contract and pictures with Bernsen that come with the sale!br / brbr Excalibur fans often look for the Series III.

In fact, the motor is believed to be original to the car. More than just its history, the big V8 inhales deeply through a proper Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor to make some terrific power and torque. This was borrowed from the Corvette, and they also fitted its rear end to make this a fully-independent suspension sports car. This even has four-wheel power disc brakes. So it this is starting to sound like a classic car that would be great for the open road, then youll also love that the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, rear air ride suspension, and newly fitted / brbr The sale comes complete with owners manual and the docs proving its celebrity status.
