Call Eddie (760) 251-8680, 9am - 7pm all days, but no answering machine. He only answers when he is in, so try later if no response. 3,000 miles since full complete rebuild of Power Train: Engines, Transmission and Differential. The Certificate of Registration shows no mileage since Eddie had it trailered to DMV where he proved complete rebuilding with receipts and records to a specialist for re-registration. Garage kept entire life by an A-1 Collector. who demonstrated meticulous care for 8 Corvettes during the life of his stable of steads. The '82 Vette has only one owner, who bought it from a dealer in 1983. 82 Vettes not delivered from factory to dealers until 1983 due to politics concerning gas rationing in the early 1980s where Corvette was a target of special attention. Enamel paint Dual 250 CFM carburation for the Cross Fire Fuel Injection System. 4 speed automatic trans, posi-traction rear. 20 MPG, Goodyear S/T tires on American Racing high polish wheels. Manufactured in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Low production in 1982: 16,000 Vettes. Avg production: 40k-50k cars per year, typ min-max: 35k-55k. Not used for one year for rebuilding and body shop. 1982: Last year made with an inset hood. Edelbrock Carburators sent to Edelbrock for complete rebuilding per factory standards. Even though Corvette is a model in the Chevrolet Division of General Motors, Corvette has its own assembly line, now in Bowling Green, with it's own engineering, design and administration department. The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky is like a heavenly vision - Eddie, the owner. 350 Corvette Dr Bowling Green, KY 42101-9134 (270) 781-7973 http://www.corvettemuseum.com Corvette engineers had to prove that Vettes were fuel efficient, note the Cross-Fire Injection fuel aspiration system in the video. Factory original Chrome WIRE wheels w/ Corvette logo, on shelf in video, included. Also included in purchase price: 4 Gas Shocks, High Performance Water Pump, High Performance Alternator, Air Filter. Eddie says with quiet confidence, "Every item in car works, even the smallest - all light switches operate." Super clean car - look for dirt in the video. The only dust I found was on the thick shop manual detectable in the feature video. Owner's garage as clean and organized as a well ordered home. His meticulous car care is the same as his professional integrity. US$27,000 available for immediate purchase. Owner paid 100% cash to dealer when brand new. The title is free and clear. There are no speed enhancements, "The car is FAST," Eddie. Eye candy ornamentation - the only enhancements. "Fastback", long sweeping aerodynamic back window, part of the Corvette Stingray editions. In that era of time the Mako Shark was a fascination to USA TV watchers, hence certain aspects of the car styling reflect features and shapes that are abstractions of a powerful, sleek, swift animal, a king of the open sea. Some say the Corvette was the first sportscar designed by American automotive manufacturers. 1965-1982 is my favorite styling of Corvettes. Search for more information about the fascinating history during the production time of the vehicle: 1983 had no Corvette production due to U.S. Congress cut-back on sports cars during The Oil Shortage. Chevrolet manufacturing had to prove to Congress during late 1982 - 1983 that Corvettes where fuel efficient before allowed to resume production. Since approval was long into 1983, '83 'Vettes were not produced on the General Motors assembly line. The concepts for the 1983 Vettes where rolled over into the 1984 Corvettes along with several items for fuel efficient technology. Max listed speed on speedometer: 80 MPH due to 1980s Oil Shortage - 55 MPH, the Federal Speed Limit in that era required Corvette to have 55 on the speedometer at top dead center with larger characters than other speeds and with contrasting bright orange color. If you understand coding embedded in the tachometer you will be able to know speeds above 80 mph. Eddie has a large, thorough knowledge of the Corvette Dynasty. Embedded code in tachometer indicates speeds above 80 mph to 120 mph. Due to "Gas Embargo", US Congressional Committee inquiry postponed production of 1982 Vettes, therefore 1982 Corvettes came off the assembly line in 1983. Corvette engineers had to prove fuel efficiency of Corvettes, since a US Congressional Committee was under the impression that the sports car was a "gas guzzler". In that era the US government issued "gas rations". (Terms in quotes yield fascinating history via internet search.) Corvette engineers provided statisical evidence that Vettes where fuel efficient with 25-30 miles per gallon of fuel consumption, therefore General Motors was permitted to resume production of the fabled American sport car in 1983, with first production cars slated for 1984. There were no Corvette production cars in 1983 - Eddie. [More] [Less]
