1982 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
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 numbers matching, mostly original paint, consigner stated original miles, original smoked glass “T” tops and a snappy acceleration and we have a nicely presenting Corvette from 1982.
Bathed in the original paint of Silver Blue, there are two areas where there has been a respray on the driver's door which is slightly off in color due to someone backing into it, and it needed to be repaired. The same holds true for the urethane bumpers in front and back which were not hit but also repainted and are slightly off. Nice clear and clean smoked glass “T” top panels can be removed for some fresh air driving. Sleek lines abound as do curves which are accented by pin striping. 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 gloves this car a fastback look, and provides plenty of extra interior light, and a storage area behind the buckets in front. 15” shiny wheels are wrapped with Cooper Radial GT tires with raised white lettering.
Nicely padded deep Blue leather door panels have a lower carpeted panel power window toggle and a storage pouch. 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, and shifter. The centrally located rise to the dash houses a quintuplet of gauges and an aftermarket Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio. In front of the driver a rectangular design instrument panel has the tachometer, speedometer, and a trio of warning lights. A/C is in and has been converted to 134A but is currently inoperable. Blue 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.
A numbers matching 350ci V8 with crossfire fuel injection that is now being provided by a DCS Renegade aftermarket crossfire intake manifold which has larger ports sits atop. A 700R4 4-speed automatic is on back of the mill.
Nicely cared for with slight surface rust, and a minor repair to the floor pan due to a driveshaft strap failure. 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 the exhaust is clean and rust free.
This car was a quick starter, and smooth runner. It has good acceleration and handling. The A/C is inoperable but has been converted to 134A. The cruise control is inoperable, and the speedo needle bounces at low speed, however mileage clocks and trip odo can be reset. A good driver though.
A well documented 3 owner car in nice condition, a good runner, and a rail like handler. Beautiful body design and looking fab all over!
