The Chevrolet Corvette has enjoyed a history of being possibly the most popular American sports car. Each generation has a following of fans, and here at Streetside Classics we aim to please those fans by providing a variety of various generations Corvettes. Today we present you with a numbers matching, 1982 Chevrolet Corvette that sports less than 47K original miles and is finished in a bold two-tone paint job.
The correct Silver Blue and Dark Blue two-tone paint job shows a clean gloss that presents bright reflections. The light blue and dark blue hues are split by a fresh two-tone blue pinstripe, that is also highlighted with a stylish hood stripe tracing the cowl. Its a fascinating color actually. Stare at the light blue paint up top, and after a minute youll start seeing less blue and more silver. Stare at what you may think is a graphite grey color on the lower portion, and youll start to see the deep blue hue emerge from different angles. It will certainly captivate you in the sunlight. All badges are present with vivid cross flag emblems at the nose and tail, and the tinted T-tops fit snug on the cars window frame. Wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/As, the 15 alloy wheels show a great luster.
A dark blue leather interior provides a comfortable environment for the driver and passenger. That leather wraps the sumptuous bucket seats with a nice gloss that confirms the low mileage and little use this interior has seen. A straight dashboard and center console are just as glossy and house factory instrumentation, an AM/FM radio with cassette, switches for the air conditioning and power windows, and the gear selector for the automatic transmission. Other amenities include cruise control, power windows, power seats, power door locks, and a telescopic and tilting steering column. And behind the bucket seats is enough room to stash away the T-tops or maybe a couple of suitcases for a weekend getaway.
The Cross-Fire Injection system made its debut in 1982 and you will find the original 350 cubic inch V8 with Cross-Fire Injection under the hood. Its a motor thats good for 200 horsepower, not a bad number for its time considering the average passenger car was lucky to make half that in 1982. That engine hasnt received any modifications, only necessary maintenance to keep it running reliably. Its mated to a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission that transfers power to the rear end. Overall its just an honest drive train and chassis that utilizes power brakes and power steering for an enjoyable driving experience. Included with the sale is a stack of receipts, original manuals, original warranty card, and the factory build sheet.
Being a low mileage, numbers matching C3, this 1982 Corvette is the perfect car for the enthusiast that still wants to enjoy their car and not stash it away in a collection hoping for a rise in value. That rise in value may one day come with this car, but in the mean time its a sharp, trustworthy companion to accompany you one weekend drives and local Corvette meets. Call today!
