Vehicle Description

1982 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

The Corvette name is synonymous with sleek styling, smooth handling, and the raw power of an American-built sports car. Anyone who finds themselves behind the wheel of one of these beautiful rides is surely a lucky - and affluent - driver. This Corvette brand is one of their biggest money-makers and serves as a great creative outlet for their engineering team. With sports cars like Corvettes, there are far fewer limits on mechanical and aesthetic decisions involving cost or design. This is especially important for their Corvette Racing division - they keep Chevrolet's hold tight on the global racing market.

For consignment, a stock appearing but highly modified final year C3 Corvette. Wearing a color change respray, original smoked glass "T" tops, a powerful LS series V8 under the hood, some interior upgrades, and 6-speed manual transmission, we have a nicely presented Corvette from 1982 with a lot more kick in the pants than it came with from the factory.

Due to modifications of the emissions control devices installed by the manufacturer, please check your local, state, and federal laws to determine if this vehicle is applicable for use on public highways in your area.*

Exterior
Bathed in a color change from Classic White to the now lipstick red, there are a few areas where the respray is slightly off in color as well as some bubbling to the finish,chips and spider cracks in the paint and underlying fiberglass. The same holds true for the urethane bumpers in front and back which are also slightly off color. Nice clear and clean smoked glass "T" top panels can be removed for some fresh air driving and the passenger's compartment glass has been darkly tinted to keep the competition guessing as to who is behind the wheel. Sleek lines abound as do curves which are accented by modern Stingray badging on the front fenders. Flared fenders and wheel wells, a vent in the front quarter, and a small rear spoiler which frames the still rounded rear complete with round taillights. A greenhouse style rear curve around glass gives this car a fastback look, and provides plenty of extra interior light, and a storage area behind the buckets in front. 5 spoke 18-inch wheels courtesy of a Camaro are on the 4's and are wrapped with Goodyear Eagle Sport radials in 245/50R18 format.

Interior
Nicely padded black leather door panels have a lower carpeted panel power lock toggle and a storage pouch. We note some color loss on the carpeted area allowing the original red to bleed through. Late model Corvette Z06 seats show some wear, but are nicely overstuffed, have great lumbar support, and show some folds on the smooth surfaces. A center console races forward, and houses a storage bin, E brake lever, power window switches and Hurst short throw shifter. The centrally located console rise to the dash and houses a quintuplet of aftermarket red digital readout LCD gauges and an aftermarket Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio. In front of the driver a rectangular design instrument panel has the tachometer, speedometer, also in aftermarket digital red LCD format and a trio of warning lights. Black carpet floods the floors and storage area, and is nicely preserved, but does have some fading and minimal staining. Overall the interior is nicely presenting and clean.

Drivetrain
Long gone is the crossfire injected 350ci V8 this Vette wasborn with. Now under the reverse opening hood resides a 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 circa 2003. It is fed fossils and atmosphere via EFI and a T56 6-speed manual Tremec transmission is bolted to the back. A 2.72 geared positraction rear axle spins the tires.

Undercarriage
Nicely cared for with slight surface rust on the frame and deep black for the flooring. Independent coil springs in front and for the rear fully independent half shafts, lateral struts, and transverse leaf springs. Power disc brakes are all around and headers snake their way down from the engine and join up with nearly new dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. We note the absence of catalytic converters on the exhaust system.

Drive-Ability
This car was a quick starter, and smooth runner. It has good acceleration and handling and performs reliably across the board. A good driver through and through with all functions operational at the time of my drive.

A nicely modernized take on the final year C3 Corvette. Beautiful body design and looking fab all over and we can't ignore the killer LS1 and Tremec transmission now under the hood. Power, reliability and good looks all wrapped up in a lipstick red package and awaiting you in our East mallway.
