Description
 
Correct numbers, rare late production 283cid/283hp, fuel injection, four speed, positraction, Bloomington Gold and NCRS Certified

1957 was considered a magic year for the Corvette with new configuration options setting the stage for both track dominance and the icon status it enjoys today. First year for the "fuelie", first year for the 4-speed that was available starting in April and the first time a vehicle achieved one horsepower for one cubic inch of displacement via the 283cubic inch/283 horsepower EL engine option. What makes our offering it so collectible?

First of its kind - our frame-up restored beauty has the newly available options of Rochester fuel injection combined with the 4-speed transmission only available on late '57 builds. A turning-point car - The 4-speed and hi-lift cam engine option producing the top power of all the road-going 57's. Less than 715 were built and while it became a favorite on the track - including a win at Sebring - the unintended result is that very few complete examples survive today. Last of its kind - Many consider the two headlamp Vettes to be the epitome of the early marque production models. In 1958 the quad headlight design appeared so this late model '57 with its classic design and performance transforming mechanicals make it the last and best of its kind. When considering a valuable classic; proof of pedigree is key. This code-correct late production model comes with the most trusted credentials in the land. After the restoration this vehicle received both Bloomington Gold and NCRS Top Flight certification. It has been driven very few miles since.

This concours-ready '57, Arizona delivery example has all the attrbutes that make it a must for the serious Corvette collector. Unbelievable level of restoration, coveted Venetian red, hi-lift cam 283 hp engine, late production Rochester FI, original 4-speed transmission, positraction rear end, radio/AC delete option and trusted certification that confirm what the number codes on it represent. When comparing the value of this example to other 1957 Vettes; the value is self-evident to one who knows '57 Corvettes and what it takes to bring an original fuelie car up to this level of restoration. The more you know, the closer you look; the better you will like it. It can't be duplicated for the price we are asking.
