Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1957

You are bidding on a one owner. radio delete. convertible top delete. 1957 Corvette. This car is very unusual in that it was equipped with a Latham Supercharger in 1957 as an aftermarket device. probably by the dealer in Flint. Michigan. Based on research. it appears that only six Latham superchargers were ever made for Corvettes in that era. The original engine is not in the car but we have it. It will need to be rebuilt as well as the car needing complete restoration. We have started and driven the car with the current engine and supercharger. The car has a 3 speed transmission with 4:11 rear end. The frame is not in great shape. but the car will come with an excellent frame/rolling chassis that I had for a C1 before owning this car. I have pics of this car on the owners wedding day in 1958 as well as other documentation from this car. Have original title as well as newer title from deceased owners son. This car is possibly a one of one car and will be very valuable when finished.
