By now, you probably know how much we love seeing and selling third-generation Corvettes. And you might even remember that we've already sold a couple of low-mileage C3s. Well, in keeping with tradition, this crisp L82 coupe is a choice classic that's showroom-fresh in virtually every way. And, given the car only has FIVE miles on its odometer, we do mean 100% showroom fresh! Are you a savvy collector who's looking for some awesome American muscle that you can spend a little money on now and get a big return on later? Congratulations, you've found your next classic!

WHITE-GLOVE WRAPPER

Stereotypes run rampant with any enthusiast car, and that seems especially true with the third-generation Corvette. That said, it's certainly hard to argue with the aesthetic appeal of a sinuous American coupe! Original Classic White paint protects a solid profile that, according to this Chevy's owner, has never been stressed in any way. That profile is made infinitely cooler by optional spoilers and mirrored T-tops. And today, this exclusive Vette rolls as a spectacular piece of iconic Motor City muscle that's ready to anchor a museum or serious collection.

L82 GYMKHANA

Tilt this Corvette's sculpted hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of original L82 V8 that, thanks to a correct Rochester 4-barrel and a correct aluminum intake, twists a stout 225 horsepower into 270 lb./ft. of everyday torque. Behind that VIN-stamped mill, a trusty Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed, an original unit that's branded with a correct partial VIN, spins a lightweight Dana 44 pumpkin that's finished with a correct, limited-slip differential. That driveline hangs in an optional FE7 Gymkhana Suspension, which combines spry power steering with 4-wheel power disc brakes. That suspension is dissected by a factory-style exhaust system, which centers a factory converter in front of twin baritone mufflers. And everything rolls on optional aluminum blades, which spin 255/60R15 Goodyear GT Radials around tasteful cross-flag center caps.

RED, AS IT SHOULD BE

Inside this coupe, an all-original interior puts a disco twist on Team Corvette's classic white-on-red theme. Firm bucket seats are nicely patterned pieces that are still being protected by plastic covers. Between those thrones, a clean console plants a short shifter between factory air conditioning, switches for factory power windows and optional Delco-GM 8-track audio. A tilt and telescoping steering wheel, still rimmed in plastic, laps conservative telemetry. And the car's healthy content list is capped off with power door locks, Cruise Control and a remote driver's sport mirror.

Lovingly preserved third-generation Corvettes are much rarer than they should be. But that doesn't mean you have to sit on the sidelines and watch a select few enthusiasts have all the fun. Featuring insanely low miles, full documentation and plenty of old school Motor City swagger, this sweet C3 is set to provide one lucky owner with years of great memories. Call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte for more information!
