1964 Royale: Arden Eby Who?

1964 Royale
Every now and again, a car pops up that is a total head-scratcher – that’s why we need our Barn Finds readers to help us figure this one out! The craigslist listing for this 1964 Royale, a limo built on a Cadillac chassis, is a peculiar one, especially since it is written as if we should know who the creator was! The name Arden Eby doesn’t ring any bells for me, so I doubt he was a world-famous automotive designer. But frankly, for a home-built job (one that supposedly took 100 hours per month for two years to build), it doesn’t look awful. The targa roof for the driver is an interesting touch, too. Has anyone ever heard of Mr. Eby or his creation? Oh and this mystery oddball could be yours for $15,000!
