1982 Chevrolet Corvette
Zoom icon


HIGHLIGHTS: Silver on black, nice original condition, mirror-tinted T-tops, late C3, so much to love. This is a neat little head-turner with fun 1980s style!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, and looks fantastic for a car this age in original condition. This is a vehicle most would consider to be a nice, driver quality car. The T-tops have been tinted with reflective tint to give the car an extra little touch of flash and bags are included to store them when not installed on the car! T-tops on or off, to call this car a looker would be an understatement.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The exterior is eye-catching, as any Corvette should be, but subtle. The silver/dark gray exterior and factory chrome wheels really complement each other well, and this Corvette is bound to grab some attention! The paint is in excellent overall condition, and this car could easily be enjoyed mostly as-is. As nice as the paint is, it does have some minor age showing here and there indicating that this is either the original paint or an older repaint.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is black leather, and it looks nice for its age. It certainly isn't flashy, but it does look great! The interior appears to be all or mostly original, and is in well-maintained condition. The mileage reads just over 55,000, and based on the interior condition we believe that to be accurate.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a tried and true Chevrolet 350 V8 engine. While a 350 is a classic choice for a C3 Corvette, the 1982s were Cross-Fire fuel injected making for easier starting as well as being less finicky on cold days than carburetors. The engine bay is clean and complete, and the engine purrs just like it should!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The nice original condition!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Late C3s aren't for everyone, but other than that there's not much to dislike.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This Corvette will need a new set of tires and the heater core replaced, as the heater core is currently bypassed.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an eye-catching, affordable, classic American icon should consider this beauty!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
