If you’re looking for the most original, highest quality 1982 Corvette available, you’ve found it.
Having less than 31,000 original miles, this stunning Corvette has obtained prestigious Bloomington Gold, Survivor, and Benchmark certifications, in addition to NCRS Top Flight Awards. The Benchmark certification is the highest award conveyed upon a Corvette, and is only awarded to cars that “appear not only unrestored, but also within a minimum of 95% of ‘Typical Factory Production.’ They truly represent the ‘Benchmark’ for those who want to know what a brand new, factory original really looks like. Benchmark cars represent the standards which historians, judges and future restorers can use to determine factory authenticity.” This car was also the recipient of a first place award at the National Council of Corvette Clubs National Convention.
Finished in stunning two-tone Silver and Dark Claret, this car’s original base coat/clear coat finish has a mirror-like luster.
The exterior is further enhanced by its factory pinstriping, optional removable roof panels and aluminum wheels. Rare among its factory options is its rear deck roof panel carrier, an option installed in only 1,992 of the 25,407 Corvettes produced in 1982.
The interior features Dark Red cloth bucket seats—also contributing to this car’s rarity. Although both cloth and leather seats were available to buyers, the cloth seated interiors were far more rare. The seating areas, carpeting, door panels, and dash board are in showroom new condition and are free from fading or wear. Well equipped with optional features, you will also appreciate this car’s long list of comfort and convenience items, including the following:
• Power windows
• Power door locks
• Power antenna
• Power driver seat
• Electric sport mirrors
• Rear window defogger
• Tilt/telescopic steering wheel with leather-wrapped rim
• Cruise control
• AM/FM ETR stereo with cassette
• Removable glass roof panels
• Roof panel carrier
All power options work as they should, including this car’s ice cold air conditioning. However, it should be noted that the gas gauge is currently not registering accurately.
Under the hood you will find the original cross-fire injected 350 CID V-8 and 4-speed automatic transmission, generating an impressive 200 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of torque. Meticulously maintained and stored in a climate controlled environment by its long-term owners, this car runs and drives as well as it looks. More recent maintenance includes a new starter, newer rear shocks, brake calipers, master cylinder, and tires.
Included with sale are the original T-top and roof panel carrier storage bags, all original owner’s and maintenance manuals and dealer paperwork, ownership history, and a photocopy of the window sticker.
