Seller Comments

The car has never been restored, but has been painted in four different schemes over the years: Originally the rare
and desirable Arctic Blue with a Red interior, then White with Silver Coves, then White with Black Racing Stripes
and a Black interior in the 70s-80s, and then painted its current Venetian Red with White Coves in 1990. The
interior was replaced in 1990 as well with the original red. A broken speedometer was replaced sometime in the
1960’s, so it has accumulated about 2300 miles on the current speedometer in the last 50 years. I estimate it had
40-50,000 miles when Dad parked it in the early 70’s (Dad maintained a collection of as many as 25 Corvettes at a
time from the 1960’s until the 2000’s). It is a decent looking, maintained, condition #3 “driver” that has
been driven very little over the last 50 years. It starts right up (even in February in 25 degree weather), idles
and drives great.
It is an August 12, 1957 production car with its original 283/245 Hp motor, four speed transmission, and 3.70
non-posi rear end with the correct numbers and dates. It is neither a survivor nor a barn find, but instead a
“rolling restoration”, as I have maintained its mechanicals and re-installed the small parts that went missing
in the 1960’s and 1970’s. The non-original fuel injection unit has been recently replaced with a numbers
correct 283/245 HP dual quad carburetor setup, which is how the car was originally delivered. It is a real 4 speed
car, with the numbers to back it up. 57 Corvettes did not four speeds installed until late in the production year,
so be wary of early cars that were originally three speed cars that had four speeds added later. Real four speed
cars (664 made) were rarer than fuel injected cars (1640 made).  I replaced the ORIGINAL clutch in 2014.
