The 1982 Chevrolet Corvette, although this year was the last of its kind, it employed many cutting-edge features, and also for the model year, featured a Collectors Edition trim. Under the hood, the 1982 Corvette had a new type of four-speed automatic transmission with lockup function in every gear except first. The engine was a new kind of 350-cid V-8 with Cross-Fire fuel injection. Twin throttle-body injectors with computerized metering helped boost horsepower to 200 (10 more than in 1981) and cut emissions at the same time, and was the first fuel-injected Corvette in nearly two decades. Externally, the final version of the “big” (Stingray-style) Corvette changed little, but the Collector Edition model displayed quite a few special features, highlighted by a frameless glass lift-up hatch in place of the customary fixed backlight. The body-color front bumper had a built-in air dam as well. Its unique Silver-Beige metallic paint was accented by pin stripes and a “fading shadow” treatment on hood, fenders and doors … plus distinctive cloisonne emblems. The car rode on special finned wheels that were similar to the cast-aluminum wheels that dated back to 1967. The Collector Edition’s removable glass roof panels had special bronze coloring and solar screening, and the model’s crossed-flags emblems read “Corvette Collector Edition” around the rim. Inside was a matching Silver-Beige metallic interior with multi-tone leather seats and door trim. Even the Collector Edition’s hand-sewn leather-wrapped steering wheel kept the theme color and its leather-covered horn button had a cloisonne emblem. The 1982 Collectors Edition corvette was distinct in that it was the first Corvette to break the $20,000.00 price mark. Collector Edition corvettes were also built-to-order, rather than according to a predetermined schedule. These cars had a 0 in the sixth position of the VIN, so swindlers could not forge a replica, which happened all to often with the 1978 Pace Car. Despite the minor and MAJOR features that make this 82 Corvette stand out you can never top the exhilarating feeling that you get from the time you pull it out of the garage until the time you swing it back in for the night.
