A mere 51 1957 Chevy Corvettes were produced with the RPO 684 Heavy Duty Racing Suspension package like what this car has, making this a rare bird to collect. This factory option is key to the history of America’s sports car, since it was one of the early movements by Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov to make the Corvette a top-level performer and not just another pretty car.

Also included in this vehicle is optional Rochester fuel injection for the 283ci small block V8 and a BorgWarner T-10 4-speed manual transmission. Special heavy-duty brakes with finned drums, ventilated backing plates with screened intake scoops, and segmented cerametallic brake linings pushed performance even further. These upgrades complement the upgraded suspension quite nicely.

This car was professionally restored, ensuring all details are correct and functional. Presented in a flawless Venetian Red over red color scheme, complete with painted red wheels and bright chrome trim, this Chevrolet will get any car gathering talking in no time. A beige top adds an unexpected and striking detail.

There’s little doubt this Big Brake Fuelie Corvette is going to last long, so if you’re interested in having a realistic shot at it, you need to be ready. If you’re not familiar with Mecum Auctions, read up on how to bid so you’re not making any mistakes the day of the auction.
