1982 Chevroolet Corvette Collector’s Edition- Gateway Classic Cars of Nashville #123
For sale in our Nashville showroom is a cool and sporty 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector’s Edition. This 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector’s Edition for sale is the last of the C3 Corvettes, ending almost a 15 year reign of smooth and sexy curves. 25,407 Corvettes for sale were produced during the 1982 model year, with 6,759 of those being the Collector’s Edition. It differed from base models in several ways including a higher level of standard features which were only optional on base models. This Collector’s Edition Corvette for sale was built in the Bowling Green, KY plant, starting which would become one of the most well known production plants in the nation. Powering this Vette for sale is an epic 350 cubic inch small block Chevy V8 engine. The ’82 Corvettes adopted a Cross-Fire Injection system, to become the first ‘fuelie’ Vette since 1965. The fuel injection system looks similar to a cross-ram set-up, giving the engine bay quite an aesthetically pleasing appeal. The Cross-Fire’s higher level of sophistication added 10 horsepower, giving it a rock solid 200hp. Chevrolet also dropped the 4-speed manual transmission and went strictly with the 4-speed automatic transmission. This would be the first time since 1954 you could only buy a Corvette with an automatic transmission only. The exterior is a specialty color of Silver Beige. With special racing stripes, mirrored T-tops, and a lift hatchback, this car was a unique factory built beauty. Special features came standard on this Collector’s Edition. One that catches most eyes, is the special wheels styled similarly to the 1967 style turbo-wheels. The interior has a special Silver Beige interior scheme which includes beautiful tri-tone leather seats and door panels. Add in the CB radio and you can tell that this car was a child of the early 80s.
