 Model year
1981 late-1982

The Corvette C3 was produced in two different assembly plants, the 1968-1980 model year cars are manufactured at the St. Louis assembly plant and the 1981 and 1982 Corvettes were manufactured at the Bowling Green assembly plant. The type of trim tag became different with this change, as you can see from the pictures above.

The manufacture year of the body can be earlier than the model year, because the production of the next model year started three to four months before the end of the calendar year.
