Here is a magnificent first generation Corvette. This 1957 fuel injected 3-speed has been with the same owner for the last 33 years. During his ownership this car received a full frame-off restoration that took ten years to complete, resulting in a truly beautiful Corvette inside and out, top and bottom.

As the pictures show, this car is in excellent condition. The restoration was completed in 1990 and still looks fantastic, having been impeccably cared for and lightly driven since. During restoration the body was stripped down to bare fiberglass and repainted its original Venetian Red with beige coves, all in lacquer. The new soft top is beige as well and makes for a very handsome car, especially with the bias ply whitewall tires. All chrome and moldings are excellent, while the underside appears factory fresh with all correct markings.

The red interior is also completely redone with all new upholstery. The dash was repainted the proper color, while all gauges work fine including the generator drive tachometer. The signal seeking Wonderbar AM radio also works properly. Glass is all original and in remarkable condtion.

The heart of this Corvette is its fuel injected 283 cubic inch motor. The engine has been replaced but is the correct 3731548 casting with correct components. It is a 250 hp setup with 7014800 fuel injection unit and 1110906 distributor. It does have a modern spin-on oil filter, though the original cartridge setup is included. Note this car's VIN gives it a build date of late July 1957.

This car comes with all receipts dating to 1980. It has many new parts; brake lines, fuel lines, fuel tank, kingpins, shocks, wiring harness, et al. All original parts that were not too far gone are also included.

This is one of the nicest 1957 Corvettes on the market. Everything has been done right and the level of detailing is outstanding throughout. Throw in the desirable color combination with the fuel injected 3-speed drivetrain and you really have something special.
