    Too long to list, but the engine is original. This car has a long story, most of which I'm lucky to know. The car will soon be reunited for the first time ever with 49 of the 50 trophies it won racing under it's other two owners!
    Biography
    I happened on this car when it was for sale in 2012 and not being marketed as it really was-a tough old racer. My friend Jim Gessner clued me in on it, though even he didn't know it's whole story. My '57 was built as a 579C, 283/283 hp FI with a 3spd converted to 4 in fall '57. California state champ 1/4 mile in '58, track records and many road racing victories. Believed to have been modified by Bill Thomas when new. Suspension by Max Balchowsky. Wheels from Andy Porterfield. Porting- C Shelby
