This Excalibur example has been under the careful care of the same owner for the past 25 years and currently displays only 12,900 actual miles on the odometer. In addition, this available Excalibur model comes complete with all original wet weather gear, has been freshly serviced and is ready for immediate use! An outstanding sports car that is one of only 37 example produced that year and one that is packed with performance thanks to it’s lightweight design and Chevrolet V8 power!
The rear brakes were addressed more recently in 2016 with new, correct Studebaker brake cylinders and Wagner shoes. The tires are newer radials measuring 215/70R15 with very minimal mileage. Upon arrival to the St Louis Car Museum, due to infrequent and regular exercise in recent years, we opted to fully service this worthy Excalibur to ensure it was 100% road ready for more moderate road time.
