For Sale: 1957 Chevrolet Corvette in Fairmont City, Illinois

$79,000

Vehicle Description

For sale in our Orlando showroom is a beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Fuelie Convertible. A black beauty complimented with silver coves and more chrome than a new Harley. One of the most aggressively styled & sought after designs of the 50’s & still in high demand today. You’ll be hard pressed to find a cleaner, nicer looking car that defines the era of big fins and high style. The power plant & transmission are the correct factory specs with the first factory fuel injection system by Chevrolet, known to the hobbyist as a “Fuelie”. The fuel injection pushed these 283 CID V8 engines to 1 horsepower per cubic inch, which was almost unheard of in 1957! The fuel injected 283 is backed by a 4 speed manual transmission that lets you hold the reins on this classic sports car. The sweet rumble of the newly installed exhaust system is music to the ears and lets you know this car is no slouch. The completely refurbished red interior is clean & comfortable for cruising the town or to the local car show. This Corvette is outfitted with a factory hardtop, but also includes a new soft top for those cool fall nights & sunny days. It’s your choice since both are included. Options include: new radial tires, hub caps, vinyl interior, seat belts, manual convertible top, and mechanical fuel injection. Repainted around 10 years ago, she still shows very well with only minor imperfections. The underside is clean and solid, and the goal was to leave the vehicle as original as possible. The top of the dash was not repainted for fear of breaking the windshield during removal. This is the original glass, and the body was stripped to bare fiberglass during the repaint and shows no signs of every having even minor repairs to the body! The current owner has enjoyed this rare piece of Corvette history for 15 years and has decided to put it up for sale to go to a new collection. These don’t pop up every day, so contact us now!
