Four-door muscle vehicles aren’ t a new issue. Just check out the latest Avoid Charger as an example. But , with regards to the Chevrolet Corvette, it appears almost weird to think of a single as a four-door version. That will obviously didn’ t quit the Chevy designers in the day, as you can see from this 1980 Vette.
This particular example is one of 6, which was built by Ca Custom Coach, Pasadena, to find out how the market would respond. Created from two donor automobiles to keep the looks from the front and back end, whilst extending the car into a 4 doors version, complete with two T-tops. Apparently, one of the six was obviously a prototype, three have been created off in the interim many years, leaving only two remaining in the world. Due to the initial higher cost of $35, 000, whilst a regular Vette was just $13, 000, meant the vehicle was never put into bulk production.
This one is said to be amounts matching, with only 20k on the clock, has a 350ci. V8 engine and a computerized transmission(not specified exactly what with no mention that this is the prototype). From looks alone, this particular Vette looks like a 1980’ s Vette that has been extended in Photoshop, but it will be curiously, the real deal.
As for worth, it’ s i9000 currently for sale at nbsauto. com for $102, 562 and has been treated to some $750 detailing job to be able to as shiny as a brand-new mullet from the same time period.
It probably expensive and quirky, however for the right collector, this Vette could be an ideal investment.
