Default 1982 Corvette Collector's Edition Low Miles Super Clean!

For sale is a 1982 Corvette Collector's Edition. This vehicle only has 23,471 miles on it and is 99% original. I originally purchased this vehicle form the original owner in 2005 and then sold it to my father in 2010 who I am now listing it for, so it is only a two family car and we have original documentation. A few things have been replaced recently, including the tires which have less than 100 miles on them, the battery, as well as most fluids and filters. The belts are still original. There are a few spots where the paint is scuffed, as shown in the pictures. The only real issues with the car are the antenna motor runs continuously if you turn the radio off (CB radio) so the radio fuse is currently pulled. I have a new antenna ribbon but have not installed it which is included in the sale. Also years ago I replaced the spark plugs with some Bosch E3 plugs but still have the original plugs which are included and I plan to install a new set of AC Delco plugs before the sale. Otherwise this car is as clean as it looks and drives great, no rust, interior is perfect, T Tops do not leak. Looking to get $16,000 but price is negotiable. You can send me a private message here, email [email protected], or text 419-340-1403 (my cell) or 419-349-5692 (brother;s cell) for more info. Thanks for looking, make me an offer!

Seems like a good price considering a similar model with twice the miles sold for $16,250 on BringaTrailer.com Monday.

Do you have any pictures of the engine compartment?

GLWTS!

Thanks for replying to me, I took a look at your car and it's really really nice. The only thing is I'm really not looking for a collector's edition. if I was I would definitely be making you an offer. Good luck with the sale I'm sure it won't be on the market very long.

I agree with HZZ, Always thought the 82 Collectors edition and the 78 Pace Car had the best paint designs...…….

Well a day late but attached are some under pics. Car will also come with the fitted cover shown and an owners manual and shop manual. Price reduced to $15,000, would like to sell in the next couple weeks. Thanks for looking!

Just some props for a fine example. If I were not still getting to know my '68 or had a three-car garage I would consider this. Though I am partial to the early year C3s, as someone mentioned above, the '82 is the stylistic choice for the soft bumper cars. Good luck with the sale.

Looks like a beautiful car in the pics!

What all original documentation do you have that accompanies the car?

Thanks,

Dave

Do you know if the rear inner wheel bearings have had the 15,000 mile re-grease service as outlined in the Owners Manual?

(Below is an excerpt from my 1976 Owners Manual -- since the bearing remained the same I imagine the service interval remained the same as well)

I am not sure if that has been done or not, we have only added 4,000 miles since we got it. Thanks!
