The Excalibur automobile was a car styled after the 1928 Mercedes-Benz SSK by Brooks Stevens for Studebaker. Stevens subsequently formed a company to manufacture and market the cars, which were conventional under their styling.
A prototype premiered at car shows in 1964, fitted on a Studebaker chassis and using a 290-brake-horsepower Studebaker 289 V-8. Studebaker almost immediately ceased its operations, ending the availability of that engine. Stevens subsequently obtained engines from General Motors through his friends, GM executives Ed Cole and Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen.
