Nostalgia Classic Cars is thrilled to offer you the ultimate American icon of the eighties, a 1982 Chevrolet C3 Corvette. The car has been painted bright red, which is inarguably the best color for a Corvette, and has been fitted with an aftermarket bodykit which adds extravagance to its fabulous looks. To complete the look, its stock wheels have been replaced with American Racing rims, and the engine has been upgraded to produce whooping 500+ horsepower. The interior is finished in complementary cream leather and carpeting, adding a breath of luxury to this American cruiser. The V8 engine is mated to an automatic transmission unit, and has 60,757 miles on it, ensuring that this Corvette has many more miles to cover.
The first Corvette saw the light of day in 1953, and has been in production eversince, through seven distinct generations. So, what was the key to Corvette's popularity and subsequent iconic status? From the very beginning, it was a proper American sports car, built to race as much as to enjoy cruising the coastal roads, but for the price an average American could afford. Today, all Corvettes are adored dream cars all over the world, and those dreams are further fueled by endless appearances in movies, TV Series, and videos. With all that in mind, a Corvette is more than just a sports car. It is an idea of the American dream.
Third generation Corvette is one of the most intriguing ones. Built from 1968 to 1982, it endured a switch from chrome to plastic bumpers, and numerous changes throughout ist long lifespan. Its wild and aggressive design was based on the 1965 Mako Shark II concept, and its design involved as the imminent winds of change in the automotive industry were blowing towards more modern looking cars. The superb example from our showroom comes from the last year of the last classic Corvette, which makes us proud to have it available for you!
