I am offering my 84 Excalibur Car for sale that was exclusively made for Roberto Duran (World Boxing Champ) who is now in the hall of fame!

Here is a bit of history on this Excalibur car.
This four seater convertible is the original neo-classic Excalibur. Based on the 1928 Mercedes 540k, the Excalibur has a rich history in servicing America's elite. The Excalibur began as a concept car in 1963. It attracted so much attention that it soon went into production.
Today the Excalibur is only made by order and can cost in excess of $200,000 US! Very few cars were ever made, Excalibur Cars' peak production was 367 cars in one year. This low figure ensured that high standards could be kept and each vehicle be made with care.
Magnificent design and a powerful Chevy V8 bring the best of both worlds to the passenger, combining luxury with performance to create a truly unique experience.
About Roberto Duran;
In 2002, he was chosen by The Ring Magazine to be the 5th greatest fighter of the last 80 years. He held world titles at four different weights - lightweight (1972-79), welterweight (1980), junior middleweight (1983-84) and middleweight (1989). He was the second boxer to have fought in five different decades. Mamby became the first boxer in history to compete in five decades. Two weeks later, Roberto Duran became the second fighter to do it.
He finally retired in January 2002 at age 50 (having previously retired in 1998) following a bad car crash in October 2001, with a professional record of 119 fights, 103 wins with 70 KOs. Up until the second Ray Leonard fight, he was trained by legendary boxing trainer Ray Arcel.
