History of the 1982 Chevrolet Corvette
The year 1982 was the last for the C3 Corvette, whose body dated back to 1968 but whose basic chassis design went back to the C2 of 1963. Chevrolet offered a "Collector's Edition" for $22,537, which was the first Corvette to cost more than $20,000, but there were no 4-speed manual gearboxes at all this year and no optional L82 engine. One consolation was that the automatic was now a 4-speed unit. A 200-bhp 350 cubic-inch Chevy small-block V-8 was the only engine available. Sales dropped to 25,407 as Corvette fans waited for the next model. It would be delayed for a year, finally arriving in 1984.
Of the 1982 Corvettes built, 18,648 were basic coupes while 6,759 were the Collector Edition, which also offered the first opening hatchback. Collector Editions also had optional special wheels which resembled the 1967 "bolt-on" wheels. The model also had special silver-beige paint, matching leather interior, and cloisonné emblems.
Chevrolet also introduced "Cross-Fire" fuel injection, which combined two fuel injectors for better mileage - a far cry from the Rochester unit last seen in 1965, whose sole job was to get as much fuel into the engine as possible. The Computer Command Central injection system was refined from 1981 and could now make 80 adjustments per second, compared with 10 in 1982.
