1982 Chevrolet Corvette Greenwood Coupe
1982 Chevrolet Corvette Greenwood 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 Corvette collectors dream showing up in the form of a 1982 Vette complete with a Greenwood Daytona body kit. Street car come Can Am style racer, many additional body panels are seen, along with an integrated rear spoiler, louvered rear window cover, and a cosigner stated piece from the Ken Lingenfelter Collection. This sleek racer has undergone a recent restoration by Masterworks Corvette Restoration and is believed to be 23,996 original miles, however the title is exempt from mileage disclosure. Yowza!!
We are in rare air with this Greenwood bodied 1982 Corvette. On the Bright Blue Metallic exterior, the front quarters now flare out to accommodate the deep mag wheels and wide tires. Air gills are just behind these flares with swept back lines emanating from the openings. The front of the car has been highly modified from the original '82 version with a lengthened nose with deeply inset grilled marker lights and equally deep fixed position rectangle headlamps. This new and racy bumper flows back into the aforementioned flared fenders each with a louvered air extractor on top. The standard hood has been replaced with a Twin Turbo style unit with more screened slats, a rear facing scoop and twin NACA ducts on each side of the hood. As we move rearward, a “T” top has been changed over to a targa style smoked transparent 1 piece design, however the divider bar remains intact. The body kit continues down low with the fenders melting into and forming running boards with Greenwood Daytona in gold decaling. A huge side scoop has been molded onto the doors and flows into the rear quarters are now much wider, and flare outward from the doors, eventually ending up framing the rounded rear with its dual iconic round taillights, with a large screened air outlet. For the greenhouse glass in back, black louvers have been added and a long rear spoiler has been seamlessly added into the body. As for badging, we see the iconic crossed flags on the fuel filler door and these flags show again between the headlights. Precision constructed polished lip dish mag wheels with gold woven snowflake inserts are wrapped by 255/60R15's upfront, and 275/60R15's on back and are all in like new condition.
Nicely padded deep blue leather door panels have a lower carpeted panel power lock toggle and a storage pouch. The seats show just fine age wear in the form of wrinkling, but are nicely overstuffed, have great lumbar support, and show some minor folds on the smooth surfaces. A center console races forward, and houses a padded top storage bin, E brake lever, power window switches, and shifter along with the heater and air conditioning slides. The centrally located console rises to the dash houses a quintuplet of gauges and the factory AM/FM/Cassette radio. In front of the driver a rectangular design instrument panel has the tachometer, speedometer, and a trio of warning lights. 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 sits in the overstuffed and well restored engine bay A 700R4 4-speed automatic is on back of the mill which sends power back to a limited slip rear axle weighing in with a 2.87 ratio. Very nicely done under the hood with clean routing of the supple hoses and wiring.
A mixture of patina, black paint, factory undercoating, and surface rust make up the bottom side of this IMSA bodied street racer. 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.
Hopping in this car I felt like I was readying to drive the 24hrs of Daytona. Looking sleek and cowled with flaring and a fin, it fired right up, and we were immediately introduced to the back of the blue leather seats. Plenty of raw power here and the crossfire injection was performing nicely. Nice handling, and all the creature comforts were working excepting the power antenna, power locks and the power mirrors. A beautiful running and driving car but you must be fully aware of the dimensions when performing tight cornering or parallel parking.
Beautifully applied paint, a well-done restoration and some provenance in its ownership history and you can glean just how great this car is from the above description. Superbly modified in mechanicals and exterior panels, she is a racing machine for the streets right out of our Classic Auto Mall 1982 time machine!
