Description
 
BEAUTIFUL VENETIAN RED CONVERTIBLE WITH 270 HORSEPOWER 283CI V8! FITTED WITH DUAL TOPS, 4-SPEED TRANSMISSION, GOODYEAR WHITEWALLS, AND MORE! BRILLIANT DRIVER SHOWING ONLY 75,000 MILES! Seeing the 1957 model year lineup at GM showrooms must have been a beautiful sight for buyers lucky enough to be in the market for a new automobile! Visiting the Chevrolet dealer would have rewarded you the chance to see the iconic Corvette in its original glory being the last, solid axle example produced with single front headlights at the front end. This classic look of Corvette has continued to capture the hearts of enthusiasts and collectors alike! We are very excited to offer this beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible finished in desired Venetian Red with White coves over Red interior and Black convertible top! This example continues to be powered by its original 283ci V8 (EG code) producing 270 horsepower through dual Carter WCFB carburetors mated to a 4-speed manual transmission! Additional equipment includes AM radio, heater/defrost, auxiliary hardtop with correct stainless steel header trim and Plexiglas windows, interior courtesy lights, door handle paint protectors, seat belts, carpeted floor mats, front license plate bracket, full wheel covers highlighted by Goodyear Silvertown wide whitewall tires measuring 6.70-15 and correct 4-ply tubeless style! The story with this car as we know it dates back to 1987 when two South Carolina brothers, believed to be twins, decided to buy matching Corvettes. When one brother discovered this Corvette (#2371) in Georgia with only 59,816 miles on the odometer, he pulled the trigger and parked it in his garage! Today the odometer reads only 75,728 miles which we believe continue to reflect actual miles from new. Approximately 5 years ago, he had the entire car repainted, installed fresh weather stripping & seals, new interior & convertible top installed, new tires mounted, and few other cosmetic enhancements to bring his largely original car to more presentable standards. After 27 years of ownership, health issues forced him to finally part ways with his investment. More recently with its latest owner, the engine was pulled and completely resealed with all new gaskets throughout from the oil pan to the Winters foundry aluminum intake. While out, it was professionally detailed, had both original carburetors professionally cleaned & rebuilt, and a new DeWitts aluminum high performance 2-row radiator installed with new hoses & clamps. The rear end was resealed along with all new gear lube. The front control arm bushings are new, as well as the brake lines & hoses, fuel filter, and both mufflers. It truly runs and drives as it should, so it is ready to enjoy immediately! The exhaust note is just splendid! Please feel free to call with additional questions or to schedule an appointment to view in person. We look forward to working with you!
