1969 Excalibur SS Roadster
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

The 1969 Excalibur SS Series I Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of red over a black interior and matching convertible top. This particular example was purchased new by a General Motors Fisher Body Supervisor. In 1974 the car was purchased by a meticulous long-term owner who entrusted the SS Roadster to his stepson after his passing. This Excalibur presents wonderfully, showcasing largely original paint and interior. It has acquired less than 2,000 miles in the past 44 years with the odometer currently reading 10,447 actual miles. During its decades of single family ownership, meticulous care was giving to maintain drivability while preserving originality, and all required parts were sourced through Excalibur.

HISTORY OF THE EXCALIBUR SERIES I
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 a Chevrolet Corvette drive train and suspension. William Stevens, who was Vice President of Excalibur during this period, 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 manufacturer in the United States with the company producing 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, Neile Adams and numerous more. For those seeking the feel of pre-war open air motoring with muscle car performance, the Excalibur offers just that. It is no surprise why examples have been sought-after for years by collectors and enthusiasts, with the Series 1 examples proving to be the most desirable.
