Information about Excalibur

Excalibur Automobile Corporation, an illustrious name in American automotive history, was born from the imagination and engineering brilliance of Brooks Stevens. An industrial designer by trade, Stevens founded the company in 1964, catalyzed by a one-off design originally created for Studebaker. The concept, a contemporary interpretation of the 1928 Mercedes-Benz SSK, was a blend of classic aesthetics and modern performance that sparked immediate interest, leading to the establishment of Excalibur as a standalone brand.

The very first model, the Excalibur SS, was a beacon of neo-classic style that appealed to those craving the grandeur of vintage cars with the reliability and speed of contemporary technology. Manufactured in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Excalibur cars became known for their distinctive design, with exposed chrome pipes and an old-world open-top roadster vibe that was unlike anything on the roads.

Despite its niche appeal, the brand maintained a steady production until the early 1990s, contributing significantly to the neo-classic car era. While Excalibur ceased production in the mid-90s, its legacy endures through a dedicated following and the continued appreciation of collectors and enthusiasts. The company’s adventurous spirit and dedication to a unique market segment highlight its enduring impact on the automotive landscape.
