Looking sharp at any angle, this is the classic sports car you’ve dreamed of owning.

This 1957 Chevrolet Corvette is an absolute stunner, thanks to the drop-dead gorgeous and factory-correct Arctic Blue body with Venetian Red coves. That combination, along with the whitewall tires, will absolutely turn heads and drop jaws everywhere you take this beauty. Thankfully, this classic American sports car isn’t just something to admire, because Carlisle Auctions is sending it to the auction block soon. It’s part of the Winter AutoFest Lakeland auction being put on by Carlisle Auctions, so now is the time for action. The auction and car show are set to take place in Lakeland, Florida, Feb. 21 & 22 (car show runs Feb. 21-23).

There’s a lot more to love about this Corvette. Not only does the paint and chrome trim look excellent, there’s a white power soft top as well as a factory hard top. That means enjoying whatever appearance and feel you want.

Matching up with the exterior nicely is the factory tri-color dash, which looks extremely patriotic in more ways than one. OE gauges, steering wheel, courtesy lights, windshield washers, power windows, an optional AM radio, and other details make this an accurate representation of a true classic.

This is an entertaining car to drive, thanks to the factory-correct 283ci 4bbl V8 and 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. Also included in the setup is a 3.70 Positraction rear. Just imagine cruising through town or hitting the open road in this Chevrolet.

A frame-off restoration completed by Vette Dreams in West Babylon, New York is why this Chevy looks so fantastic. While 1957 Corvettes certainly are sought-after collector items, this one is particularly interesting since it’s believed to be one of only four to have rolled out of the factory with this color combination and factory options.
