Is the 4-doors Corvette really existed?

Now we are back to discussing the Corvette, one of the famous American muscle cars. Well if usually this American car appears in the appearance of a two-doors sports car, then is there a 4-doors Corvette model? As we all knew, until now the Chevrolet manufacturer had never made a single one of 4-doors Corvette variants.

Now, if You see many of them circulated in the internet, it doesn't mean You are seeing the 3D rendering model results. We can be assured one of those are not a virtual car model that was digitally engineered through the 3D computer softwares by a rendering artist. How come? This is a real car that was deliberately built for anyone who want to combine the Corvette's sporty character with the practicality of a four-doors sedan.

Back in the late of 1970s, indeed there was a 4-door Corvette variant made by California Custom Coachworks under commissioned of General Motors in limited numbers for its customers, namely 5 units out of a total of six cars ever produced, with one of them was a prototype.

In short, the Pasadena-based company builds all those cars from the standard 2-doors Corvettes, then lengthened them to 30 inches, automatically adding a significant 500 lbs of weight to the body as well. As the result is a very rare four-doors Corvette featuring four seats and a very strange and unusual design.

But unfortunately only two units are believed to survive today, and one of them, a bright red 4-doors Corvette listed for sale by the NBS Auto Showroom in the 2019. Those red color continues to creep into the interior as well, ranging from the seats, dashboard, and seat belts all red. Meanwhile the odometer recorded a range of 20,000 miles, because it was only driven to the auto shows.
Judging from the price of $35,000 offered for this car, it would be make you rethink for a moment, because it is double of the price of the base model Corvette at the time. But if you looking at the rarity factor plus if you were a true Corvette collector would make those $ 35,000 figures worth it for this 4-doors Corvette.

We thought, perhaps the car sold by now. It was fortunate that the buyer was able to own a rare 4-doors Corvette and most importantly the car was reside in the right hands now. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARBUZZ | DESIGNYOUTRUST | NBS AUTOSHOWROOM ]
