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! History Of The 1968 Excalibur SSK Roadster Series I: The original Excalibur Series I was the brainchild of Studebaker\'s Brooks Stevens, who took inspiration from the famous 1929 Mercedes-Benz SSK and decided to make a more modern interpretation. Originally designed in 1964 over a Studebaker chassis with their 289ci V8 but due to Studebaker\'s demise the project was forced in a different direction and connections ultimately landed the car with Corvette power. Taking into account the car\'s 2100 pounds, along with a, Chevrolet V8 mated to a 4-speed manual, the produced models were sensationally quick and able to accelerate to 60 mph in just over five seconds with a top speed of 160mph! Prices started at $7500, which all but eliminated the average man from buying a new one. Their style and performance have been endured as one of the most stylish performance cars of the 1960\'s, allowing them to be seen as a very unique opportunity for collectors who are looking to own an elegant automobile with brutish power! About Our 1968 Excalibur SSK Roadster For Sale: Offered here is a stellar, all original 1968 Excalibur Series I Roadster finished in factory applied Black Lacquer exterior with an all original Red vinyl upholstered interior! Showing only 12,932 actual miles on the odometer, this beautifully preserved unit comes to us from the former Texas owner of 25 years and is powered by its number\'s matching Chevrolet 327ci/300hp V8 and Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. In combination with a stout 3.73 Posi-Traction rear axle, it proves to deliver potent performance you\'d better be ready for! Additional features include original stainless steel grill cover, stainless steel exhaust system and collectors, polished round tube stainless steel bumpers, 15 chrome Dayton wire spoke knock-off wheels, tinted windscreen, luggage rack, Plexiglas wind wings, wooden 3-spoke sport steering wheel & unique SSK shift knob, trumpet horns, polished bare aluminum hood, faux wood veneer dash, full dash instrumentation with 8K tach and 160mph speedometer, and under dash auxiliary map light. This very special Excalibur Roadster #3041 is uniquely original possessing many of the original factory attributes still intact! These include the red covers on the front and rear springs, inline engine oil filtration system, California emissions equipment with smog pump, Rochester carburetor, factory unused top & side curtains, aforementioned original paint and interior, dash face, original gauges, and 3 lap belts by Irving Air Chute Mfg! Locating an early Series I Excalibur on the open market is a rare occasion, considering only 365 were produced between 1965 thru 1969. Of those, only 265 were true Roadsters and only 168 were equipped with optional full fenders and opening doors! These allowed the exhaust to be re-positioned to exit at the rear, eliminating the hot side exhaust pipes, making for an easier entry/exit of the vehicle, particularly if the convertible top was being utilized. The prior owner of our available Excalibur model took great pride in his ownership on this particular Roadster and elected to contribute some needed attention to the radiator in 2004 having it re-cored with a 4 row center section. That same year, the Dunlop front brake calipers were re-sleeved by specialist White Post with new cross over pipes and bra
