Default 1957 Corvette Fuel Injection

You are looking at a drop dead gorgeous 1957 Chevrolet Corvette with Factory fuel injection. Matching number 283 cubic inch with 283 horsepower engine, matching number 3 speed manual transmission, and matching number 3:70 ratio rear end. One of the attached pictures has a list of all the numbers on this car. This car has just had a fresh frame-on restoration. The paint was wet sanded and buffed to achieve a phenomenal finish and shine. It's as smooth as glass. A complete new wiring harness was installed from headlights to tail lights. All new weather stripping installed. New carpets installed. Speedometer rebuilt. A complete new exhaust system front to rear. The engine and transmission were removed from the car and completely detailed to show condition. The entire engine compartment was repainted and detailed. Engine reinstalled. Fuel injection unit has just been rebuilt and tuned by fuel injection specialist Jerry Bramlett in Mobile Alabama. The car starts right up and runs and drives excellent. The underside of the car has been cleaned and detailed. The body gaps on this car are excellent and the panels fit flush the way they should. All bonding strips are in place as they should be. The car is very straight. There is no rust in the frame.
Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.


All payments are by bank wire transfer only. Please PM me with any questions or comments. $89,500.00 OB0

I requested that any questions or comments be PMed to me. The correct 7 fin valve covers are on the car as should be for this Vin number. Do a little research.

The price has been further reduced to $89,500 OBO. The hard top is not included. I'll listen to any reasonable offers or trades.

If Venitian Red is your color, This is a very viable car for the money! There are 57's completely apart in garages and if all of the correct parts are still in those boxes you can finish it with another $60K. Don't forget that it could take 1200 hours to completely restore a C1 ... so divide your extra 20 hours per week into that for a rough idea of what you are looking at. Make sure that you get that hard top with it or if you can find another one & it can be restored for an additional $5K! Not sure that you will get any bites on this forum but I do wish you good luck.
