For sale in our Denver showroom is a 1982 red on red Chevrolet Corvette with T-Tops. This is a gorgeous all original C3 Corvette, with only 28,295 actual miles. The same year this Corvette rolled off the assembly line. Michael Jackson releases his album “Thriller” and Jordache Jeans are all the rage. The third generation Corvette, patterned after the Mako Shark II concept car, was introduced for the 1968 model year and was in production until 1982. C3 coupes featured the first use of T-top removable roof panels. It introduced monikers that were later revived, such as LT-1, ZR-1, Z07 and Collector Edition. This was also the first time that a Corvette was used as a Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500. This timeless classic is powered by a 350 CID Cross Fire V8, backed by a four-speed automatic. With factory A/C, red leather seats and steering wheel, and glass T-Tops. 1982 saw the debut of the “Cross-Fire Injection” fuel delivery system. This TBI (Throttle Body Fuel Injection) was not the type of fuel injection installed previously in some C1 and C2 Corvettes. It utilized two throttle bodies combined with Chevrolet’s computer control system. The engine produced 200 HP and was mated to a new four-speed automatic transmission with torque converters bypass in the top three gears. Compared to the previous Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed, the new 700-R4 transmission had a lower first and second gear for improved low-end acceleration, and a fourth gear overdrive that would reduce engine RPM by 30 percent at highway cruising speeds, resulting in better fuel economy. The final model C3 Corvette's published performance numbers were 0-60 in 7.9 seconds-the quarter-mile in 16.1 @ 85 mph. This was the last year for 8-track tape availability and new “cross-fire injection” emblems appeared on front fenders. Nose and fuel door crossed-flags emblems changed to a more squared design.
