Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1957


This 1957 Corvette project car is from Arizona in gray primer with a no rust frame. The frame, under side andgas tank area of the car have been restored. A front clip was installed by the previous owners body shop. I believe the car was originally thought to be a 1956, hence the 265 CI motor. Checking the frame serial number it is definitely a 1957 and titled as such. The VIN, frame serial number and title all match.

This Corvette has a 265 cubic inch engine NOM (Not Original Motor) with a Warner T10 3-speed manual transmission already installed. The car does not run or drive at this point. Included with the car are the following parts most ofwhich are original 1957 used parts in good and fair condition.Please take the time
