Car history:
1957 Corvette
VIN E57S105828
VENITIAN RED/INDIA IVORY COVES
283 CI, 270 bhp, Numbers Matching!
Overhead valve V-8, 4 Speed Manual Transmission, Hard and Soft Tops.

The iconic Corvette really came into it's own with the 1956 model. Restyled with a
sleeker body featuring contrasting color concave coves, it became an instant hit.
For all weather protection GM added roll up windows that, indeed added to its growing
popularity. But in 1956 Corvette only offered 265 ci passenger car engines with
horsepower up to only 240.

The '56 styling carried over to 1957. But in '57 Chevrolet got serious about performance
offering 283 ci engines which made up to 283 bhp when equipped with mechanical
fuel injection and a solid lifter high performance camshaft. Also offered was the 2
four barrel equipped 270 bhp high performance engine featured in our example.

To this day many people prefer the 270 bhp for its overall reliability versus the
fuel injected version which only offered 13 additional horsepower. But the icing on
the cake for performance buffs was the mid year introduction of the 4 speed
transmission. Our car, built in July 1957, was born with a 4 speed -- only 664 of
the total production of 6,339 were so equipped.

Restored some years ago our Corvette still presents well. It makes a striking
impression. The convertible top is white vinyl with black liner. Interior is in red
vinyl with red carpet, both in excellent condition. The engine compartment is
clean but shows that this '57 was enjoyed.

This first generation Corvette is ready for its next owner to drive and appreciate.
We have gone through the car to insure it is mechanically up to snuff, it even has
brand new Pennsylvania Safety inspection sticker.

We've tried to present this Corvette as best we can but if you have questions feel
