If you wanted the ultimate new Corvette in ’82, the Collector Edition was the way to go! This special edition was brought out to commemorate the end of the C3’s 14 year model run. It was loaded with basically every available option and had exclusive Silver Beige exterior with hood and side “fade” stripes and a matching leather-wrapped Silver Beige interior. It featured a few “firsts”, as well. It was the first Corvette to have a 4-spd automatic transmission, the first (C.E. only) to have an opening rear glass hatch and the first Corvette to have a $20k price tag!
This low miles C.E. comes from a local So Cal client who purchased it from Corvette Mike a number of years ago. With the exception of tires, radio (the original comes with) and regular maintaince, it’s pretty much all original! Yes, the vinyl hood stripe is cracked, which is very common, but the paint is in very nice condition, as is the interior. The engine runs strong, shifts well and has the performance you’d expect from an ’82. It’s a nice car and a great driver. Stk #5896
