(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, it's possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are not presented due to website limitations.

1982 marked the final year of the iconic 3rd Generation Corvette. To commemorate the final year, Chevrolet offered the Collector Edition as an order only for customers. All together, they sold 6,759 Collector Edition Corvette's and it was the first Corvette ever to break the $20k sale price. Listed at $22,527.59, it was considerably more advanced and expensive than the first year C3, a 1968 coupe that retailed for $4,600.
This particular car is believed to be just a two-owner vehicle, our client purchasing it through Pro Team Corvette in Ohio who acquired it from the original owner. Our client has owned the car for ten years and with how clean and original the car is, it's hard to believe it has over 100k miles. Clearly it was cared for by both owners, with the most recent owner only upgrading the exhaust and stereo/ Everything else remains original, including the paint and interior.
The car is finished in Collector Edition Silver Beige paint over a Beige interior. It is powered by the original 350ci/200hp Crossfire Injection V8 mated to the 700R-4 OD Automatic Transmission with 2:87 Posi Rear-End. Other features include Air Conditioning, 4-Wheel Power Disc Brakes, Rear Glass Hatch, Tilt Wheel, Cruise Control, Power Antenna, Power Driver's Seat, EZI Tinted Glass, Power Windows, Power Locks, Removable Bronze Glass Tops, and of course the Collector Edition Package with appointed badging.
Limited edition cars are always desirable and keep their value, especially in an iconic car like a Corvette. It will be tough to find a cleaner, all original example at this price point.
