When you're looking for a later C3 Chevrolet Corvette, the 1982 model is the one that often comes to mind for enthusiasts that also love to drive. After all, this gave you fuel injection and overdrive right from the factory. And if you look inside of this coupe, you'll even see a loaded interior with cold-blowing A/C.
White is a timelessly cool color, and so it's nice to have it on a timelessly cool 'Vette. This car has only had three owners over the last 40+ years, and so it has the good look of collector care. That's why the paint is not only believed to be the factory application, but it also continues to look good. This care is also seen in the overall fit of the car where the headlights rest flush, the T-tops fit sung, the doors close with confidence, and the fenders show off the smooth arched look that made the C3 an enduring icon. It all retains a highly stock style, but the polished Rally wheels are a nice upgrade that connects this with its predecessors and adds some proper American-style brightwork. The odometer is believed to reflect the correct mileage with one rollover (114k range), so the overall style is a car that has been enjoyed but done responsibly. And because this is a Corvette for drivers, we but you're looking to continue that tradition.
The deep blue interior looks quite distinct against the exterior white. It's highly original, and that means fun details, like the fold-flat front seats and courtesy lights that greet you when the door opens. You may feel like updating a few pieces, like the upholstery or carpet, but nothing takes away from a solid driver atmosphere. You have features like power windows, power locks, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. So this is the ideal car to take out the T-tops and drive all day. In fact, you'll find the sports steering wheel tilt column, and full gauge package quite engaging.
1982 was the final year of the C3, and Chevrolet made it special by giving it some of the advances that were coming on the C4. So this was the only time the C3 had fuel injection from the factory, and the Cross Fire Injection 350 cubic-inch V8 was an impressive electronically controlled setup. It delivered better power with better consistency which made this one of the best cruising Corvettes ever. It's a great grand tour driver because a new 700R4 four-speed automatic overdrive transmission was standard equipment. The low ownership care is a true advantage of this car, and you can feel it in the way this starts, runs, and drives like the well-respected classic that it is. Add in the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and you have a coupe that's easy to enjoy all weekend long.
