|This car was purchased at an estate auction, this is basically a one owner car.. I
have only driven this car for about 15 miles, from the auction house to my house
and around the block a couple times. I am not an expert in Corvettes so I will
describe vehicle as best as I can. I have attached some General information
about the car, I encourage all potential buyers to verify and inspect vehicle in person.
CALIFORNIA SMOG CERTIFICATE IN HAND.
These limited production (6,759 units) Collectors Editions were lavishly equipped
for the time and the highlights will be listed as follows: power steering, power four
wheel disc brakes, factory air conditioning, power windows, power door locks,
cruise control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, power outside rear view mirrors
on both sides, factory original AM/FM electronic tuned stereo radio, power drivers

The special features of the Collectors Edition include an opening rear glass hatchback
with built in defroster, special aluminum wheels that simulate the special 1967
"bolt on style", unique silver-beige paint, unique body appliqus, tri-tone silver
beige leather interior with a special leather wrapped steering wheel and special
The exterior finish is close to show quality and definitely has been given great
care with only a small blemish on the driver door and small chip of the pin stripe
(see pictures). The interior is as nice as you would expect on such a low mileage
automobile. All components function properly as far as I have tested, and this
Corvette drives excellent. The glass is in excellent condition showing no stone chips,
This Collectors Edition Corvette definitely has serious collectable potential due to
its low production and uniqueness. They are already becoming difficult to secure,
especially one in this condition.
One of the most unique and attractive Corvettes that were ever produced by GM
and it was to celebrate the last model year of the body style that lasted fifteen
years. This was the period of 1968 through 1982 and is called the C3 body style.
Powered by a 350.c.i. 200 hp. Chevrolet V8 engine and is mated to a four speed
automatic transmission. New for 1982, the transmission is equipped with a torque
converter clutch operating the top three gears.
