1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

“The styling of the 1957 Corvette was largely unchanged, however the performance vastly improved. In 1957 the new Corvette took a giant stride forward with the introduction of the new Ramjet Fuel Injection. This was at the time, the most advanced performance feature ever offered on an American production engine. The Ramjet Fuel Injection, an efficient constant flow system that eliminated the carburetor, delivered fuel directly to the cylinders for instantaneous accelerator response, greater overall fuel economy, higher low-speed torque and smoothness, ease of starting and overall improvement of engine performance, was sensational. In one bold stroke the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette provided a new dimension of driving pleasure.” - National Corvette Museum

This incredibly special 1957 Chevrolet Corvette is finished in Artic Blue with Inca Silver coves and beige interior was factory ordered with the legendary 283 cubic inch fuel injected (fuelie) motor producing 283 horsepower. This Corvette has full ownership records since new and comes with a story of its history from its early days on the drag strip to its full restoration and multiple awards.

This Corvette received its awards during mid 1980's yet remains in excellent condition which can be attributed to the workmanship of the extensive restoration as well as the care of the past stewardship. Believed to be just a few hundred miles since the restoration this Corvette presents cosmetically and mechanically as if the restoration was just completed.

Depress the gas pedal, turn the key and this Corvette comes to life instantly with the music of the solid lifters coming from the engine bay. This Corvette accelerates through the gears effortlessly and provides the ride you would expect if you drove a Corvette off the showroom floor in 1957.
