about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist.   We are a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 2004 Corvettes.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

vehicle description

 

 

Seven Hills Motorcars is proud to offer this beautiful, totally restored, and numbers matching 1982 Corvette.  Before you pass by this car as another poorly running and unreliable "Cross Fire" fuel injected 1982 Corvette, know that this particular car has had the great benefit of a conversion back to carburetion.   According to the previous owner the car was totally restored to driver quality about five years ago.  He said that the body was taken off the frame, stripped, and repainted.  All of the mechanicals were also gone through, the engine was also rebuilt at that time, and converted from fuel injection to carburetion. 

This car is "numbers matching" with the last six digits of the vin, 109519, stamped on the engine pad.  Also stamped on the pad is "V0316 ZBA."  The "V" means the engine came from the Flint, MI plant.  The "0316" means the engine was assembled on March 16, 1982 and the "ZBA" is a suffix code meaning that this engine was intended for 200hp application with an automatic transmission and without California emissions, such is this car.  Also found on the block is the engine casting date, "C 1 2."  The "C" denotes March, "1" is the day of the month, and "2" is the year.  This means the block was cast on March 1, 1982 which is correct as it predates the assembly date of the engine.

The 1982 was not only the final year of the third generation Corvette, it was truly the end of an era.  It was the last of the "Mako Shark" body style first introduced in 1968, which has become the most famous and recognizable Corvette design to date.  First available in the 1981 Corvettes, a new weight saving and performance enhancing fiberglass leaf spring became standard on the rear suspension in all 1982 Corvettes.  1982 was also the last year the an 8-Track player could be ordered new, which is actually featured on this car.  This model year marked the end of the most prolific era for Corvette and history will always hold a special place for the 1982 Corvette.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our cars come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to examine each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about bidding.  If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Corvette’s bright red paint looks awesome.  The car was professionally stripped and painted five years ago and the car has seen limited use since then.  The paint has a dazzling gloss and a smooth glass-like finish.  This car exhibits very good body panel fit.  Also, the bumpers fit very well with no shrinkage or large/uneven gaps.  There are no major scratches, scrapes, or cracks in the paint that have been excluded from the photos.  There are a few very small spots in the paint that were too small to show in in photos, but nothing that is noticeable from 5 feet away.  Often many Corvettes have rock chips on the front end, this car does not.  Photos of the low front end and front spoiler area included to show the excellent condition there as that area is so fragile and prone to damage and wear.  The aluminum wheels are in great shape with no curb rash.  This car has no rust issues.  The frame is solid and I have seen no evidence of corrosion around the "A" pillar.

The car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

 

Interior

 

The black leather interior of this Corvette is in nice condition. The seats show virtually no wear brand new without any rips, tears, or excessive wear. The driver’s seat is not worn in the typical places, such as where the driver’s belt-line may wear the seat bolsters.  I have specifically included a photo of the area where the driver gets in and out because this it is so prone to rips and splitting.  The carpet shows well with no rips, tears, or stains.  Some of the carpet, especially the rear carpet has a slight blue tint.  All of the gauges work, even the clock.  The dash and center console look great and have no sun fading or cracks.  The door panels look fine and fit tightly to the door.  This car has not been smoked in, there is no ash in the ashtray and no odor what so ever.

 

Mechanical

This Corvette runs great.  It sports an aluminum intake and Edelbrock carburetor.  The car starts right away and idles well.  The Corvette drives splendidly.  It is tight on the road and at highway speeds.  The previous owner drove the car on a 1,400 mile road trip from Columbus, OH to North Carolina just last year so this car is well sorted and reliable.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The transmission shift well, but sometimes it seems a bit early.  The brakes stop the car powerfully and do not pull to one side or the other.  The headlights pop up without excessive effort or binding.  Even the a/c blows cold.  The only items that I am aware of on the car that do not work are the horn and the power locks.  This car is a pleasure to drive, especially with the t-tops out on a nice day.


Overall
Condition

 

Overall this 1982 Corvette is in terrific condition.  The last model year of any body style always holds a premium is always desirable.  Numbers matching is extremely important in Corvette pricing and a must for any Corvette that can be taken seriously as a investment or show car.  The prices of Corvettes for 1980 to 1982 have increased drastically over the past several years.  They are all solid investments for a collector.  One could drive and enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than your purchase price.  The Corvette always turns heads and is admired by every car enthusiast.  Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
