wow! how rare is this super collector corvette!  call jeff today - 410-562-9319

has just been totally inspected by a top level NCRS Judge and determined to be a true, numbers matching fuelie.
full nut and bolt report is available to serious buyers. have no doubt. this is opportunity knocking.
only 4 others with this power train are known to exist and who knows what condition?
this beauty has been mechanically restored and pro serviced. starts, runs, and drives perfectly.
this car has never been repainted. but there are signs of spot sprays from over the years and some checking in the paint. there is also a speration in the seam of the drivers seat.
it is a one top car from birth. the matching hard top has been restored and still in the box. so, do you have it repainted for the first time and fix a couple little things or keep it the way it is? that's up to you. current collector did not feel he wanted to paint it. has never been judged for a top flight award which is reflected in our price.

this car has huge upside.  have it cosmetically restored to top flight level and you are sitting on a $150,000.00+ first year fuelie... or keep it the way it is and it's perfect for drivng to the local shows!
there will not be another like it!




1957 CORVETTE SPECS

"Introducing Sensational New Fuel Injection"  First Year Corvette Fuelie!

The styling of the 1957 Corvette was largely unchanged, however the performance vastly improved. In 1957 the new Corvette took a giant stride forward with the introduction of the new Ramjet Fuel Injection. This was at the time, the most advanced performance feature ever offered on an American production engine. The Ramjet Fuel Injection, an efficient constant flow system that eliminated the carburetor, delivered fuel directly to the cylinders for instantaneous accelerator response, greater overall fuel economy, higher low-speed torque and smoothness, ease of starting and overall improvement of engine performance, was sensational. In one bold stroke the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette provided a new dimension of driving pleasure.

For The First Time In Automobile History- ONE H.P. For Every Cubic Inch 

Now with Fuel Injection, the 283-h.p. senior engine in the Corvette line attained a milestone in American Automotive history- one horsepower for every cubic inch. In fact, all four Corvette engines had been increased to 283 cubic inches of displacement. The other three basic Corvette engines were the standard 220 h.p. V8, the 245 h.p. twin four-barrel V8 and the 250 h.p. V8 with Fuel Injection.

Standard equipment with the 1957 Corvette was a special 3-speed close ratio transmission. Also, in tailoring the Corvette to individual taste, a special version of the smooth Powerglide transmission was available as an extra-cost option with certain engines. In any combinations, the Corvette driver commands the most remarkable road car in America- and a show stopper for looks, luxury, and comfort.
