Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this numbers matching 1982 Collector Edition Corvette in absolutely spectacular condition with only 17,435 original miles. This Corvette is truly an investment grade classic. The car looks beautiful, runs great, and drives awesome. The 1982 Collector Edition has been steadily increasing in value for the past few years and is an excellent investment. There is copy of the Autocheck report on this car pictured below. The report shows no accident history and verifies the very low original mileage.

Besides the correct paint and trim codes this Corvette is completely "Numbers Matching" and virtually every part we checked on the car is correct with the proper part numbers and appropriate date codes. We have run the numbers on literally hundreds of Corvettes over the years and there are very few that are so correct and original. Even very detailed parts like the distributor, both throttle bodies, alternator, intake manifold, and even all the glass including both T-Tops are all correct and original. The last six digits of the VIN, 107506, are stamped on the engine pad, which is pictured in this ad, and the engine is original to the car. The transmission is also original with the last six digits of the VIN stamped on the main case and pictured.

The car is totally solid with nice lines and no rust issues. It is finished in the rare and highly desirable color combination of Silver Beige (59) over Silver Beige Leather (591), which are the right codes for a Collector Edition. This is the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the trim tag pictured in this ad as well as the window sticker. This Corvette is ready to be used and enjoyed. We have this car priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable Corvette at an unbeatable value. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C3 Corvettes is very hot right now and on the rise, especially for low mileage and special examples like this Collector Edition.

Beside the Collector Edition package this Corvette is absolutely loaded with appealing options as one can see in the extensive list of RPO codes in this ad such as V54 roof panel carrier, power locks, power windows, power seat, power mirrors, rear window defogger, and tilt/telescopic steering wheel. The low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title showing the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information to get a true sense of how nice, clean, and original this Corvette really is.

Please note that this Collector Edition came new from the factory with the V54 Roof Panel Carrier option. The V54 allows you to store the T-Tops on the rear deck lid over the rear hatch. This option is why the car has the four black mounting points on the rear deck that one can see in the photos. This option was very rare and only installed on 1,992 Corvettes. We have owned a number of Corvettes with the V54 and what is exceptionally rare is for the option to be complete with the mounting brackets, straps, and storage bag. This Collector Edition is complete and has all of the accessories to actually use V54. It has all four brackets, both straps, a storage bag, and the straps are still present inside the car to secure the storage bag.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Model Description

This is an authentic and original Collector Edition Corvette verified by the special trim codes and special VIN code, both pictured below. A "0" in the sixth digit of the VIN is exclusive to Collector Editions.

The 1982 was not only the final year of the third generation Corvette, it was truly the end of an era. It was the last of the "Mako Shark" body style first introduced in 1968, which has become the most famous and recognizable Corvette design to date. First available in the 1981 Corvettes, a new weight saving and performance enhancing fiberglass leaf spring became standard on the rear suspension in all 1982 Corvettes. This model year marked the end of the most prolific era for Corvette and history will always hold a special place for the 1982 Corvette.

To honor the special in history that GM knew the 1982 Corvette would hold Chevrolet decided to release a special "Collector Edition." It differed from the normal Corvette in many ways. In addition to the higher level of standard features, the Collector Edition had a lifting frameless glass hatchback with remote release, special silver-beige paint, graduated hood and side body decals, commemorative aluminum wheels styled similarly to the 1967 "bolt on" optional wheels, accent pin striping, multi-tone silver-beige leather seats and door trim, leather wrapped steering wheel and horn cap, special exterior and interior emblems, and luxury carpeting were all exclusive to the Collector Edition and not available on the standard model. The 1982 Corvette Collector Edition was the first Corvette to have a base price over $20,000.00.


The Silver Beige exterior is in gorgeous driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth glass-like finish. 1982 was the first year for full production out of the new factory in Bowing Green, KY. This means that this Corvette was one of the first to receive a true multistage base coat clear coat paintjob, which is why the late 1981 and all 1982 model years have held up so well over the years. We have seen no paint lines, overspray, or any other signs of any type of paintwork or repairs over the years and we believe that this Collector Edition has all original paint and decals; the AutoCheck report also shows no accident history. Often many Corvettes will have particularly chipped up front ends, this car does not. The underside of the front end, which is a very fragile and venerable area of the car, is in good condition as evidenced by the photos. Both doors open and shut nicely. The original Collector Edition turbine wheels are in gorgeous condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. The Goodyear tires have plenty of tread left and are correctly sized 255/60R15. There are no major scratches, scrapes, or other imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. There are some very tiny blemishes and some of the typical imperfections you see under the clear on the C3's that have original paint and were made in Bowling Green that were too small to show up in the pictures, but nothing that is really noticeably from about five or ten feet away. Also, the hood decal is showing some age, which is common with the original decals. This Corvette has absolutely NO rust issues. As one can see in the many photos of the underside this Corvette is very clean underneath. The frame is totally solid with no rust around the "key hole" area in front of the rear tire and we have seen no ...for more information please contact the seller.
