When you're looking for a later C3 Chevrolet Corvette, the 1982
model is the one that often comes to mind for enthusiasts that also
love to drive. After all, this gave you fuel injection and
overdrive right from the factory. And if you look inside of this
coupe, you'll even see a loaded interior with cold-blowing A/C.
White is a timelessly cool color, and so it's nice to have it on a
timelessly cool 'Vette. This car has only had three owners over the
last 40+ years, and so it has the good look of collector care.
That's why the paint is not only believed to be the factory
application, but it also continues to look good. This care is also
seen in the overall fit of the car where the headlights rest flush,
the T-tops fit sung, the doors close with confidence, and the
fenders show off the smooth arched look that made the C3 an
enduring icon. It all retains a highly stock style, but the
polished Rally wheels are a nice upgrade that connects this with
its predecessors and adds some proper American-style brightwork.
The odometer is believed to reflect the correct mileage with one
rollover (114k range), so the overall style is a car that has been
enjoyed but done responsibly. And because this is a Corvette for
drivers, we but you're looking to continue that tradition.
The deep blue interior looks quite distinct against the exterior
white. It's highly original, and that means fun details, like the
fold-flat front seats and courtesy lights that greet you when the
door opens. You may feel like updating a few pieces, like the
upholstery or carpet, but nothing takes away from a solid driver
atmosphere. You have features like power windows, power locks, an
upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. So
this is the ideal car to take out the T-tops and drive all day. In
fact, you'll find the sports steering wheel tilt column, and full
gauge package quite engaging.
1982 was the final year of the C3, and Chevrolet made it special by
giving it some of the advances that were coming on the C4. So this
was the only time the C3 had fuel injection from the factory, and
the Cross Fire Injection 350 cubic-inch V8 was an impressive
electronically controlled setup. It delivered better power with
better consistency which made this one of the best cruising
Corvettes ever. It's a great grand tour driver because a new 700R4
four-speed automatic overdrive transmission was standard equipment.
The low ownership care is a true advantage of this car, and you can
feel it in the way this starts, runs, and drives like the
well-respected classic that it is. Add in the fully independent
sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc
brakes, and you have a coupe that's easy to enjoy all weekend

Corvette that's ready for a driver like you. Call today!!!
