1998 Excaliber Limited Edition (1998)
Criag Brody's Investment Motorcars
Location: Florida, United States
The Excalibur name is known as the 1st really successful retro styled automobile to make a replica of something old that was a hit & accepted by the public & produced in decent numbers since 1965. They had five series of cars that differed from each other in one form or another, made thru the late 80's. In 1994, the company was sold to a group of Germans that decided to make a car that would be a mix of their original Series II design but made into a sporty version to excite a new select group of people to the Excalibur brand. DO NOT CONFUSE THIS TRUE 1998 EXCALIBUR WITH THE ALMOST SIMILAR LOOKING SERIES III CAR BUILT IN THE 70'S !!! Excalibur made only 27 cars in 1994...they were called the "Limited Edition" of their popular Phaeton body that sat 4 full size adults. It was a far better made car than before & exhibited so many new lines & sporty features that were not seen on an Excalibur since 1965. Having a new lower profile with a very sports car like interior, low profile grippy tires on 17" chrome wire wheels, a potent Corvette motor yet retaining all the good looks was a winning combo. This particular Limited Edition was not sold new until 1998, making it the very last Excalibur to sell as a new car to its 1st owner in Miami, Florida. It was sold for $100K. & he kept it until 2006. The new 2nd owner lived in Sarasota, Florida. He decided to enhance the performance of this Limited Edition. He spent over $30K. adding the following items: Fully rebuilding the tuned port injection Corvette engine ($4,600.), installing a killer Vortec Supercharger ($10,457.), rebuilt the Transmission ($2,612.), complete Wilwood Disc brakes ($2,591.), headers & full exhaust system, etc...the list goes on. This car performs better than any Excalibur on the road & is a perfect candidate for some nice Rallies thru the mountains. You may surprise most everybody just how great she drives & handles. Having only 28K original miles from new w/only 2 owners ever...this Excalibur Limited Edition is sure to please the eyes & ears of its next lucky owner. Don't let this get away !
