1957 Chevrolet Corvette 283/283 Fuelie convertible


This 1957 Corvette is confirmed by its VIN as having been delivered with the ultimate “283/283” V8 with Rochester fuel injection and high-lift cam, which still resides under the hood today. It is also equipped with a T-10 4-speed transmission, a Positraction rear axle, a signal-seeking AM radio, and both a soft top and a removable body-color hard top. A high-quality restoration, performed in previous care, saw the car refinished in Venetian Red over red upholstery, after which the car was on display in a Corvette museum for some time.

The car is still very much as it was when the restoration was completed, and it offers an unbeatable combination of performance and good looks. To many, this is exactly what the mental picture of a 1957 Corvette describes: red on red, fuel injection, good options, both tops, and ready to go to a new home.
