Model year 1982 represented the end of the road for the C3 generation of Corvettes. The longest running generation of Corvette, at 15 years, and with the highest record(to this day) of cars sold in one year(1979), the shark generation wasn't going out without a bang. Chevrolet sent off the C3 with a special Collector Edition model, and all 1982 Corvettes received the first ever standard Fuel Injected engine in Corvette history. The "Cross-Fire" engine as Chevrolet termed it utilized twin Rochester throttle body injection units set diagonally apart on a low profile aluminum intake manifold. Each throttle body fed the four cylinders on the opposite side of the engine. This gave more low end torque and better fuel atomization and mixture with intake air as it traveled to the intake valve. The L83 V8 in GM speak jumped 10 horsepower with no other changes from the carbureted L81 in 1981 models. Suddenly base Corvette engines were back above 200 horsepower again, the first time since the 1972 model year. With 285lb ft of torque, new for 1982 four speed automatic transmission, and 2.78:1 rear axle ratio, the 1982 Corvette was not blisteringly fast but acquitted itself nicely in the acceleration department especially when considered in period. Four wheel disc brakes with aluminum calipers, independent suspension all around, and throaty dual exhaust give this Corvette proper sporting street credentials. This gorgeous Corvette pictured is finished in its factory single stage black paint that has a brilliant sheen and combined with the beautiful dark red leather interior makes for a stunning presentation. The mirrored T-Top panels are removable for that open air driving experience at a moments notice. The gorgeous polished aluminum Rallye wheels with white letter tires are period correct and possibly the best combination of wheel and tire to be fitted to the C3 generation. Inside this Corvette is a luxury GT car interior. You will find deeply sculpted leather bucket seats, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, power seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, ice cold A/C, and upgraded Bluetooth stereo with added speakers in the rear hatch area. The interior has received a complete restoration, and is nicer than the day it was new. This Corvette is a joy to drive, looks amazing, and is comfortable and well equipped for long distance driving.
