Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1957

Restored Corvette Convertible Fuelie 283/283hp FI V8 3-speed Power Windows ///
A numbers-matching gem that's benefitted from a detailed, ground-up restoration, this Corvette is an exclusive, first-year Fuelie that's presented in era-correct aesthetics! The object of a comprehensive, frame-off restoration, this impressive roadster looks straight out of the Golden Age of Americana! During its detailed reboot, the car's sinuous body was carefully massaged into a head-turning crowd pleaser. When perfected, those neck-straining curves were highlighted in a sweet combination Onyx Black and Inca Silver 2-stage. And today, this Chevy's solid condition is typical of what we all wish to find in a nice, show-ready classic. Tilt this roadster's lightweight bonnet and you'll find 283 cubic inches of freshly rebuilt small block that hangs a correct 3731548 casting number behind a correct "EL" build stamp. Behind that hot motor, a tough Saginaw 3-speed levels a correct 3845122 casting number over a June (F) 24th (24), 1957 (7) casting date. At the ends of the floors, a fully restored double A-arm and solid axle suspension features era-correct steering. At the corners of the car, standard 4-wheel drum brakes provide solid and confident stops. And power meets the pavement though Onyx Black steelies, which spin 205/75R15 whitewalls around traditional stainless wheel covers. Between the doors, textured seats still have years of life left in them. Front and center, a stylish, dual-cowl dash hangs retro gauges above optional factory heat and an old school Wonderbar radio. Slick California carpet frames a petite chrome shifter. And in front of the driver, a speed-drilled steering wheel spins a color-keyed rim around a polished cross-flag horn button. We've said it once, and we'll say it again: the best way to enjoy your Sunday afternoons is behind the wheel of a vintage roadster. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to experience a stellar piece of Motor City history!
