1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collectors Edition Coupe Offered for consignment, this Collector Edition Corvette right out of 1982 that presents in very good condition. Some paint flaws and minimal scratching are showing, however this example is still running strong and is 1 of only 6,759 produced. An overall very clean and nicely presenting car with an interesting space age interior, numbers matching drivetrain and the removable roof panels which are bronze tinted glass. Combine that with the 12,217 title verified actual miles, Crossfire Injection, 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 to brown fade decaling appears on the hood as well. The all fiberglass body is in good condition, bathed in the original application of Silver Beige Metallic paint, but sporting a few very slight chips and scratches that one must look hard to find. Bronze tinted glass T tops, which are removable and come with their storage bags 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 wrapped in new in 2021 correct 255/60R15s 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/Beige spacesuit style material seating has horizontal multi shade silver brown hue panels on the bucket seating. The seats are showing a bit 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. Things are very clean inside, clean enough to wonder if we stepped into a time machine upon opening the doors. An early 1980s style rectangular dash has analog instrumentation and another cluster of analog gauges is seen in the center console. This console, which includes the floor shifter and power window toggles between the bucket seats is made of silver beige plastic and is factory spec correct. The factory AM/FM/Cassette stereo is parked firmly in its factory home and we note a factory installed CB is still on board, just like the build sheet says it should be. A padded 3-spoke stock steering wheel fronts the dash and sports the crossed flags Corvette logo. Drivetrain A numbers matching 350ci V8 engine is fueled by the new Cross-Fire Injection which includes 2 throttle bodies combined with Chevrolets computer control system. A numbers matching 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission bolted to the back, with higher ratio first and second gear, as well as a fourth gear overdrive increased the acceleration while not sacrificing economy, has been treated to a new pan gasket and filter. 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, albeit just a light peppering and things are 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 rear 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 and frankly those space suit seats are more comfortable than you can even imagine. A fine example of a rare commemorative edition Corvette. A verified low miles, the factory build sheet, 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. 1G1AY078XC5115567 1-USA G-General Motors 1-Chevrolet A-Manual Belts Y-Corvette 07-Collectors Edition 8-5.7L L83 V8 Crossfire Injection X-Check Digit C-1982 5-Bowling Green, KY Assy Plant 115567-Sequential Unit Number TRIM TAG 06A-1st Week June 591-Silver Beige Leather 59L 59U-Silver Beige Metallic Classic Auto Mall is a 336,000-square foot classic and special interest automobile showroom, featuring over 850 vehicles for sale with showroom space for up to 1,000 vehicles.
