The fate of the first-generation Chevrolet Corvette was looking potentially grim as sales started to spiral downhill. For the 1956 model, GM made some big changes in structure, mechanics, and aesthetics. While sales were still nowhere near record-breaking, things starting to look up for Chevrolet's now-flagship sports car. While styling didn't change much for the '57 model year, it was given improvements in regards to performance. Today, an old-school Corvette is a hot commodity among classic car enthusiasts. GT Motor Cars is pleased to offer the chance to snag this stunning 1957 Chevy Corvette.
Given a frame-off restoration to NCRS standards, this vintage 'Vette shines beautifully in Venetian Red with contrasting white coves and convertible top. Drop the top to reveal a pristine red interior with perfect white accents on the dashboard and door panels. Flawless chrome accents can be found inside and out and further add to its classic appeal.
The '57 Corvette was the first model year to offer Ramjet Fuel Injection, the most advanced performance offering in an American production engine at the time. Tucked inside the engine bay of this classic gem is a 283cui V8 "Fuelie" mated to a 4-speed manual transmission and good for 283-bhp at 6200-rpm.
Other mechanical highlights include a 10:5:1 compression ratio, high-lift camshaft, high-speed valve system with special valve springs, spring dampers, hydraulic valve lifters, five-bearing forged steel crankshaft, special replaceable main and connecting rod bearings. A true dual exhaust adds a bit more oomph and rumble.
This newly restored '57 Chevy Corvette would make the perfect addition to any car collection, or for somebody who wants to show it off on the weekends. Car shows and cruises await with this stunning vintage C1. The price is unlisted, but feel free to contact GT Motor Cars for a price and submit an offer.
