In commemoration of the final year of Third-Generation ‘C3’ Corvette production, Chevrolet released the 1982 Collector Edition, a high-content, high-style Corvette and the first priced over $20,000 new. The Collector Edition featured a hatchback rear-window, special paint and graphics, turbine-style alloy wheels, a T-roof, and a host of comfort and convenience amenities. Power was provided by the 200-hp L83 “Cross-Fire Injection” 350 cubic-inch V-8, rated at 200 hp. Priced from $22,537; demand for the Collector Edition was strong with 6,759 produced.
A time capsule example with the odometer reading just 1,164 original miles at the time of writing, this one-owner example is sold with the original California title. Stored indoors since new and only ever hand-washed and started and moved since new, it comes from a low-mileage collection. It is arguably the lowest-mile Collector Edition Corvette in existence. Powered by the matching numbers 350/200 hp Cross-Fire Injection engine and automatic transmission. Under the hood, the Corvette is original and it looks and runs as new. Options include factory air conditioning, power seat, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering, AM/ FM stereo, and a power antenna. The original paint and body decals are in excellent condition, the body is undamaged, and the undercarriage is rust-free and original. Even the tires are original, but should be replaced prior to any contemplated road use. This very special Corvette also retains the original leather interior, with no rips or scratches, which even and feels like brand new.
