1982 Chevrolet Corvette C3
Sting Ray Sport Coupe
Chassis #: 1G1AY878XC5120010
Sold for $12,650 at 2007 The Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction.
This 1982 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe was offered for sale at the 2007 Sports and Classic Car Auction presented by The Worldwide Group, in Hilton Head Island, SC where it was estimated to sell for $17,000 - $23,000. It is powered by a 5.7-liter Cross-Fire injection engine capable of producing around 200 horsepower. There is a four-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel disc brakes.

The Corvette has a legacy that reaches to 1953, when it was one of the first American entry's into the sports car market which had seen a strong presence by the European market such as Jaguar with their potent XJ120.

The third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette drew its design inspiration from the 'Mako Shark II' design created by Larry Shinoda for Chevrolet. The third generation began in 1968 and ended in 1982.

1982 was the first year for fuel-injection in a corvette in nearly two decades. Mini-computerization had arrived, and had brought with it many new improvements over the prior FI versions of the Corvette. Within the gas tank was a new electric fuel pump.

This example is a matching numbers and an original example. It is finished in silver with removable glass roof panels and a dark blue cloth interior showing some wear since new. It is fitted with several options including power brakes, factory air conditioning, power seat, power windows, and electric outside mirrors.

At auction the car found a new owner, buying the car for $12,650 including buyer's premium.
