For Sale: 1982 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition. Chevrolet has made several special edition corvettes over the years and they have all been something special. This one is no exception in that it has plenty of one off items that you will only see on the Collector 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 leather multi colored seats were made of real leather, not vinyl, which is a very nice upgrade and these seats tend to hold up great. The special, exclusive aluminum wheels were designed to look like the optional bolt-on wheels of the 1967 model. The Collector Edition had a "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 unlimited availability and 6,759 were produced out of a 1982 total production of 25,407. Something new to the corvette in 1982 that was not exclusive to just the Collector Edition was Chevrolet's patented cross fire injection. This throttle body injection system utilized two throttle bodies combined with Chevrolet's computer control system.[6] The engine produced 200 hp (149 kW) and was mated to a new four-speed automatic transmission with torque converters bypass in the top three gears. Compared to the previous Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed, the new 700-R4 transmission had a lower first and second gear for improved low-end acceleration, and a fourth gear overdrive that would reduce engine RPM by 30 percent at highway cruising speeds, resulting in better fuel economy.
