Print Friendly and PDF



Below is a complete listing of 1982 Corvette RPO codes, production and performance numbers.

Model Year Highlights

  • 1982 Corvette hoods featured a small door operated by a solenoid to direct fresh air into the air cleaner upon full throttle.
  • New for 1982 was Crossfire Fuel Injection which utilized two computer controlled fuel injectors capable of making 80 adjustments per second. This resulted in better driveability, performance, and greater fuel economy.
  • The 1982 exhaust system was redesigned with smaller and lighter catalytic converters.
  • The Collector Edition was the first Corvette to exceed a $20,000 price tag.
