Car history:
You are viewing my 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition. I am the third
owner of this vehicle having purchased it in February 2005 with 3,257 miles on it.
The first 2 owners were buddies and lived in the same town and used to show the
car at car shows. It now has 4,230 documented original miles and has been climate
controlled garage-kept its entire life. All work done while in my possession and
annual check ups were done by Zenon at Gold Coast Corvette in Fort lauderdale FL.

For those of you who know exactly what youre viewing and therefore don't need
it, please bear with me a moment as others may not be as familiar with this cars history:

Since its introduction in 1953, Chevrolet is now on its sixth generation. The
1968-1982 generation, the C3s as they are commonly called, were the very
recognizable Stingray/Shark body style. For 1982, the last Sharks were
commemorated with the Collector Edition versions. Of the 25,407 Corvettes
built for 1982, there were 6,759 Collectors Editions included in that total. The
Collector Editions were also the first Corvettes to have sticker price of over
$20,000 - a princely sum for a Corvette or any car that year, given the average
car price in America in 1982 was about $8,000.

The 1982 model Corvettes all had the 350 cubic inch V8, with Cross Fire
computercontrolled fuel injection, and the new 700-R4 automatic overdrive four-
speed transmission.

The 1982 Collector Editions were a breed apart with certain features never
seen before or since: they had VIN (vehicle identification number) sequences that
were separate from the other production Corvettes that year, a unique Silver-
Beige Metallic paint, the fading shadow hood and body decals, and aluminum-
finned wheels that recalled the 1967 models optional wheels. There were also
special emblems and interior treatment that included silver-beige leather seats
with matching door trim and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a horn button with a
Collector Edition emblem matching the snout and gas cap emblems, and upgraded carpet.

Last unique to the Collector Editions, and the first for any Corvette, was the
lifting-glass "hatchback" feature.

My Corvette Collector Edition is in as-manufactured condition, except for the
battery, some caliper work and the alternator (I replaced this but have the
original). Beyond that, this car is exactly (i.e, every hard part, nut, bolt, clip, and
fastener .. everything) as it came from the factory in Bowling Green Kentucky.
The stickers and decals are flawless...no peeling or scraping. There are no
scratches at all anywhere.

This Corvette still looks, runs, and drives like new. I drove this Corvette 1,000
miles in the last 6 years. Usually used it on clear days, weekends or on date night
with the wife. The car has the original Goodyear Eagle GTs which as you can see
look great and have lots of tread on them.

Already well-equipped (as indicated on the factory invoice - note that the sticker
price was over $24,000) with many standard features that were options on other
Corvettes, this Corvette also has almost every option available in 1982. All the
original owners manuals, including the original factory invoice (for $24,267.59), a
copy of the build sheet, and related documents/marketing have been retained.

The interior leather and vinyl is still soft and pliable, as are the weather-stripping
and other rubber parts. The carpet looks new, the instrument panel (all the
chrome trim intact) and gauges look perfect.

I am sad to part with this car but we don't use it enough to warrant keeping it.
