Back in 1980, California Custom Coachworks did a limited run of just five Chevrolet Corvette sedans for customers (a total of six were produced, one of them being a prototype). They took the stock body Corvettes, lengthened them by 30 inches, adding a significant 500-lb weight gain to the body. The result however was a very rare four-door Corvette that featured four seats and a very peculiar design.

We spotted one of these rare sedans up for sale on eBay, claiming it’s one of the few left and that it’s completely original, never been damaged and sports 19,867 miles on the odometer. The owner has also taken it to many shows, collecting first place trophies along the way through each one.  It’s a little strange to see a four-door Corvette with our own eyes, never mind one with a $265,500 price tag.
