1980 Corvette Hatchback

by Dustin

I have a 1980 Corvette that has a hatchback. Now most people would say are u sure its not an 82, yes I am positive. I have the paperwork where the dealer installed the hatchback, but I was wondering how many knew of this option and how many cars had this option because mine is the only one I have ever seen.

1980 Corvette Hatch NEW
by: Jim

I bought a 1980 corvette Hatch back in 1987 by accident. I recently had the car redone and the conversation centered around the "Hatch" . An appraiser refused to appraise the car unless it was documented. I did attempt but ran into a corvette rubber nosed idiot. I did take the car up to a corvette specialist and he offered me any car on his lot if I would trade. I learned several things regarding the rarity and would be happy to share. Also during research I contacted just about everyone I could and found somethings which may be helpful. I will monitor the site if anyone needs anything.

1980 Hatch Vette
by: Anonymous


I have a "Hatch Vette" in my garage as we speak. We bought this vette in 1987 and were told it was a dealer mod. I haven't figured out yet if it was an Eckler product or the Cars and Concepts. I am leaning toward the Cars and Concepts as it has defogger, interior light interface and alarm. On the front fender it has the "Hatch Vette" decal. Just thought I would let you know I have a dealer mod vette.
