Chevrolet by American Custom Coachwork

1980: The Empire Strikes Back hit theatres, Ronald Reagan won the oval office for the first time by defeating the incumbent president, Jimmy Carter, 489 electoral votes to 49, and Pasadena-based, California Custom Coachworks produced a limited run of six Corvette Sedans.


One of only two known survivors is currently up for sale at NBS Auto Showroom in Milpitas, CA. CCC created these rarities by lengthening stock Corvettes a full 30 inches in order to add two extra doors and seating for two occupants in the rear (at a cost of 500 extra lbs. of curb weight). This put original buyers back a total of $35,000, nearly $109,000 in today’s money!
