The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

Classic Car Overview

1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collectors Edition The 1982 Collector Edition was the first Corvette with a hatchback rear window, foreshadowing the C4 Corvette. A special color scheme was used inside and out and Collector Edition badges were featured. The special, exclusive aluminum wheels were designed to look like the optional bolt-on wheels of the 1967 model. The Collector Edition had an 0 in the sixth digit of the VIN rather than the 8 found on standard Corvettes. This was the first Corvette to sell for more than $20,000, with a base price of $22,537.59. The Collector Edition had limited availability and 6,759 were produced out of a 1982 total Corvette production of 25,407. Offered for consignment, this Collector Edition automobile presents in good condition. Some paint flaws and minimal scratching show overall, however still running strong this example of only 6,759 produced. An overall very clean and nicely presenting car with an interesting space age interior. This car has the removable roof panels which are bronze tinted glass and a 3 owner history that combines with the 27,615 verified actual miles, Crossfire Injection 350ci V8, a clean CarFax, and the original build sheet all to form one seriously collectible Collectors Edition. Exterior Silver beige paint was the color of every 1982 Collector Edition Corvette produced, and this is no exception. Dark brown curvaceous pinstriping wraps around the passenger compartment and highlights the fenders. A gray to black fade is seen on the beltline door panel and makes its way to black ending in the front quarter panel/air vent. The same gray to black fade appears on the hood, which presents with some cracking of the decal. The all fiberglass body is in good condition, bathed in the original application of paint but sporting some battle scars in the form of scuffs and scrapes, particularly on the pointed neoprene nose. Bronze tinted glass T tops, which are removable, are scratch free and clear. A hatchback style operable window covers the rear deck. Unique wheels, turbine style, patterned after the 1967 models bolt on alloys, are also unique to this commemorative edition. Crossfire injection badging is seen as well on the exterior as are the iconic quad of round tail/signal lights. Interior Metallic Silver/Brown spacesuit style material seating has horizontal multi shade silver brown hue panels on the bucket seating. The seats are showing a of wrinkling to the material, but no tears or fading is noted. This pattern is mimicked on the door panels, with the lower door panels wrapped in smoked gray carpet. This same carpet in good condition is seen throughout the cabin and even in the stowage hatch area remains very clean. Storage bags are seen in the rear to keep the T-tops scratch and mar free when removed. We note some soiling on the plastic backs of the front seat, particularly on the drivers top. An early 1980s style rectangular dash has analog instrumentation. Another cluster of analog gauges is seen in the center console, which includes the floor shifter and power window toggles between the bucket seats. A padded 3-spoke stock steering wheel fronts the dash and sports the crossed flags Corvette logo. Drivetrain A 350ci V8 engine is fueled by the new Cross-Fire Injection which includes 2 throttle bodies combined with Chevrolets computer control system. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with higher ratio first and second gear, as well as a fourth gear overdrive, increased the acceleration, and improved fuel economy. The entire engine compartment presents in good condition. Rounding out the drivetrain is the 2.87 geared Positraction rear axle. Undercarriage Underside of the car reveals that surface rust is present, but it is structurally sound. Power disc brakes are on all four wheels and providing the signature Corvette ride is an independent coil spring front suspension that works with a fully independent frame anchored differential and transverse leaf spring arrangement. A single exhaust system with dual stock replacement mufflers handles the spent fossil removal with ease. Drive-Ability This car was a quick starter, and smooth runner. It has good acceleration and handling. Its always a pleasure to take a few laps on our test track with the T-tops out and the wind in whats left of my hair. All functions were working swimmingly with the exception of the horn that wouldnt toot. A fine example of a rare commemorative edition Corvette. A verified 3 owners, low miles, and all original and all early 80s design C3 package. This car will benefit from having its legs stretched, and a good workout, not unlike a sleepy thoroughbred, which has many races left in it.
