1982 Chevrolet CorvetteYou are looking at a unicorn in the Corvette world, especially for the late C3 generation.
This is a very rare color combination of Silver Green exterior with Silver Green leather. Weirdly optioned with Radio Delete but also has the radio accommodation package. Best figures I have found are 723 Silver Green painted Corvettes left the Bowling Green KY factory and somewhere around 250 were equipped with Silver Green leather interior. Add in the factory radio delete, this is likely a 1 of 1. No matter what the numbers are this is an unusual and beautiful Corvette. Additionally, this Corvette has led a very cherished life in a climate controlled garage along with multiple NCRS Top Flight awards with judging sheets showing an amazing 97.2% on a Regional NCRS event ( very difficult to accomplish that high of a percentage in a Regional event) and a 98.3% in another Regional event. It has been asked to enter a National and Bow tie event but I’ve never found the time to do that. An NCRS event is an extremely detailed and thorough inspection of the vehicle. 5 teams of Judges go through every inch of the car confirming the originality and numbers of each and every part including condition. The only deductions are for wear and tear as they are judged as if they are on Day 1 dealer delivery. Obviously with an unrestored vehicle there are some things that just cannot be helped with an original 38 year old vehicle no matter how well preserved. However, they are only original once! I have a binder of documentation including original window sticker, build sheet, GM documentation, ownership papers, parts replaced, etc. The documentation on this vehicle is broad and complete as much as it can possibly be. They don’t get any better documented for originality, correctness and condition as a multiple NCRS Top Flight Corvette.
This car is an absolute pleasure to own and drive and stunning in person.
I’ve owned this vehicle for a long time and it always makes me smile when I go out to my garage. This car ALWAYS starts up and runs great. It is regularly exercised as sitting dormant is the worst thing one can do to a vehicle.
I just rebuilt the master cylinder and all 4 calipers. The power windows, seat and door locks all work. The AC blows cold. The tilt column is tight, all gauges work and the headlamps operate as they should, there really isn’t much else to say about this car.
If you have any questions feel free to call Melvin at 469-400-6001 and I will try to answer them.
This is a vehicle you’ll likely never run across again!
