In the late 70s, a clever idea sprung to mind to a Pasadena-based company to make the corvette slightly more practical, yet retaining its sporty character and sexy looks. The project was simple, cut two Corvettes in half and weld them together so that they have an increase in the wheelbase by 30 inches and two extra doors.
So California Custom Coach built six examples of the four-door Corvette, including the prototype that they hoped wouldn't end up like Jeremy Clarkson's Fiat Panda limousine. Fortunately, it didn't.
Only two are thought exist today, one of which is listed for sale by NBS Auto Showroom. The car's interior and exterior are bright red and are in pristine condition. Obviously a rare classic will not be daily driven, and so the car has just 20,000 miles on the clock and was primarily driven to car shows.
As for the reliability and the technical bits, don't you worry because this is no replica built in someone's shed. This has the genuine 5.7-litre V8 Corvette engine connected to a four-speed automatic gearbox.
What about the price? Although the Four-door Corvette is a desirable, rare collectible with just six ever made, it isn't asking for the bonkers amount of cash that an Italian classic car of the same exclusivity will. It will only set you back for $217,203. Despite the fact that you can buy a Panamera Turbo for a lot less, I think this is a bargain and collectors will be all over it!
