1982 was the last of the C3 Corvettes, and this 82 is a low-mileage beauty that is loaded with options and documentation. Forget the garden-variety Collectors Editions (which are anything but), and take a look at this 95% original piece that is just about ready for the field at Bloomington. If ever there was an 82 Corvette that was investment quality, this 100% matching numbers car might be it.
The car was purchased by its second owner on August 15, 1984, with 13,415 miles on the clock. Since then, it has traveled only an additional 4318 miles for a total of 17,799 original miles. It has never been driven in the snow, and if the current owner is correct, it has only been driven in the rain twice.
The body and paint on this special Corvette are absolutely original and untouched, with no damage ever. There are virtually no dings, no dents, no scratches and no blemishes except for a slight blemish on the spoiler caused by a mouse chewing on the car cover while it was in storage. It appears that the car was never driven in the rain, and was garaged from new. The original Silver Blue paint is in outstanding condition, and you know its vintage 1982 enamel because the nose and tail dont quite matchthey never did, since they were painted separately. Every piece of trim on this Corvette is perfect and showroom new, including the tail lamp lenses, side marker lights, driver & passenger side mirrors. Every piece of chrome, including the top chrome and door handles, is like new. All glass in the Corvette is original factory glass, and is absolutely mint, with no scratches, hazing or pitting. Of course it is equipped with factory T-Tops, but they have never been removed from the car!
As evidenced by the broadcast sheet, this Corvette came equipped with the following options: power door locks, power drivers seat, bucket seats, tilt/telescope wheel, 2.87 axle ratio, rear defroster, cruise control, aluminum wheels, P255/60R15WL tires, AM/FM cassette stereo radio, power antenna, dual rear speakers, T-tops with mirrored glass panels, and heavy duty cooling. Additional features include: power windows, air conditioning, power steering and power disc brakes.
The drivetrain in this Corvette is absolutely original and untouched. The engine compartment is like new and largely original, except for a number of repairs made in-house by our own technicians and totaling more than $2500. That work included a new fuel pump, filter, and sending unit, belts and hoses, new brake calipers, brake pads, brake hoses, a new master cylinder, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs, and ignition wires, as well as an PCV valve, oil and filter change. Today it is 100% road worthy.
The original 350 V8 engine with "Cross Fire Injection" and rated at 200 HP is tucked under the hood. Also present is the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, which was standard equipment in these cars in 1982. Power gets to the ground via the original 2.87-geared rear axle. Mechanically, this Corvette is a brand new car, and the underside of the car is as clean as a whistle. Also present are the original 15" aluminum wheels, which are as new. The tires are the original Goodyears, and while I would advise against using them for a long road trip at high speeds, when is the last time you saw a 28-year-old car wearing its original tires? In the trunk youll find the original spare, which has never been used. Talk about a perfectly preserved time capsule!
The interior in the Corvette is absolutely perfect, from the dark blue leather bucket seats and door panels, to the dash & instrument cluster. All gauges and controls operate perfectly, and there are no blemishes, tears, or rips present. This is truly a mint, original interior, and is visually stunning.
Documentation includes an original owners manual, original sales contract, service agreement, warranty booklet, ETR sound system manual, CB radio rules, maintenance schedule, consumer information guide, Goodyear tire warranty, transmission shift quadrant pamphlet, pre-delivery inspection checklist and the original broadcast sheet. Wow! If it came with this car when it was new, its in the file today. There are also receipts for all the recent work done by RK Motors.
If you are looking for a true INVESTMENT GRADE 1982 Corvette, this is the car you want: original, mint, documented and low mileage. The last few C3 Corvettes weve had have sold almost overnight for strong money, so dont wait to pull the trigger on this one, as it won't be around long!
