Up for consideration is a stunning example of a NUMBERS MATCHING 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition with 20,783 miles and a clean car fax! This is one of only 6,759 examples of this limited edition Corvettes were built. Rare by Corvette standards. All ’82’s came with the 200hp “cross fire” computer-controlled, fuel-injected power plant and the new 700-R4 automatic overdrive transmission. Although 25,407 Corvettes were built for 1982, the 6,759 Collector Edition versions were created specifically to commemorate the ending of the model run. What Makes the 1982 Collectors Edition Corvette So Special? (according to ) In many ways, the 1982 Corvette was the best C3 of all. Setting it apart were cloisonné emblems on the hood, rear deck, and steering wheel; silver-beige metallic paint with graduated shadow-like contrast striping on the hood and body sides; bronze-tint glass T-tops; and finned “turbine” alloy wheels like the ones first seen on the 1963 Sting Ray. Inside were matching silver-beige leather upholstery and door trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and luxury carpeting. A less obvious difference was this version’s frameless lift-up glass hatch, which had been omitted from the 1978 restyle because of cost considerations. Incidentally, it was not available on the base 1982 Corvette, though several aftermarket suppliers had turned to offering this as a conversion for “glass back” models. The car’s most distinguishing features are in plain view. The Code 59 Silver Beige paint was unique to this model, as were the hood and body decals and accent pinstriping. Alloy wheels that recalled the ’67’s optional bolt-ons were part of the package, and special emblems further identified the special edition Corvettes as something special. The interior also got special treatment, with a silver-beige leather interior and door trim, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and horn button (complete with a matching Collector Edition emblem) and upgraded carpet. New for 1982 was the Collector Edition, with a unique lift-up rear window and specific paint and trim. It listed for $22,537, versus $18,290 for the regular coupe. What’s more, the Collector Edition carried the dubious distinction of being the first Corvette to break the $20,000 price barrier, listing at $22,538 — which was a far cry from the $4,663 it had taken to buy a nicely equipped 1968 model.
