1957 Chevrolet Corvette
The '57 Corvette is in most Corvette collector's eyes, has one of
the most iconic looks with the single headlights, rounded rear
fenders with a small tailfin, and those exhaust tips sneakily
coming out the rear bumpers.
We have a driver quality Corvette here in black/silver coves with
date code correct 283 cubic inch engine, 2-4 barrel carbs, red
interior, a convertible top (needs replaced, and a black matching
Engine & Drivetrain The only size engine available in 1957 was a
283 cubic inch engine and ours is date code correct with casting
number #3731548 which has 2-4 barrel carbs on an aluminum intake,
orange painted block and heads, chrome open air cleaners, aluminum
finned Corvette script valve covers, dual exhaust, factory cast
iron exhaust manifolds, chrome engine shielding, with all sitting
in a clean factory looking engine compartment.
It is backed by a four-speed manual transmission that shifts very
smoothly and rides on white sidewall tires and steel wheels with
chrome Corvette hubcaps.
The bright red interior has twin bucket seats, red carpet, matching
door panels, all factory instruments in the dash with a 140-mph
speedometer which dominated most of the dashboard, while other
smaller gauges fill the rest of the dash with the original Wonder
Bar radio still in place.
It also has a red Corvette steering wheel, chrome Hurst shifter and
ivory Hurst shift ball, a convertible top, and a nice-fitting black
hard top that matches the paint.
Most collectors will agree that the 1957 Corvette design is
timeless and widely recognized, and ours sports the black paint
scheme set off by the silver painted coves on the side.
The body looks great with the hood louvers and trunk trim as well
as the chrome front and rear bumpers, and of course the iconic way
the exhausts exit out of that rear bumper.
Early Corvettes like the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette we have here at
Adventure Classics are highly collectible and it's easy to see why
with black one.
This Corvette will be the center of attention anywhere it goes,
especially if you take it up to the next level, with the great
color combination of black/silver cove paint combined with the red
interior, wide whites, and the hardtop.
