Corvette Description

This 1957 Chevrolet Corvette is powered by a fuel-injected 283ci V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission and is finished in red over red vinyl. Equipment includes a white convertible soft top, windshield washers, seat belts, a heater, and an AM radio. The current owner reportedly acquired the car circa 1999, and subsequent work is said to have included a rebuild of the Rochester mechanical fuel injection system. This C1 is now offered in California on dealer consignment with a New Hampshire title in the owner’s name.
The car is finished in red with matching coves, and exterior equipment includes a white convertible soft top, windshield washers, a wrap-around windshield, a rear fender-mounted antenna, chrome front and rear bumperettes, and dual exhaust outlets that exit through the rear bumper uprights. Blemishes in the finish can be seen close-up in the gallery below.
The 15" steel wheels wear covers with faux knock-off spinners and are wrapped in BFGoodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. The car came equipped from the factory with an independent front suspension and semi-elliptical rear leaf springs. Braking is handled by drums at each corner.
The cabin features twin bucket seats trimmed in red vinyl along with a color-coordinated dash, carpets, and door panels. Equipment includes seat belts, a heater, a signal-seeking AM radio, a floor-mounted shifter, a clock, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror. The carpets show wear in the driver’s footwell.
The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 140-mph speedometer, and center-mounted instrumentation consists of a tachometer, an ammeter, and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows 62k miles, and total mileage is unknown.
The 283ci V8 features Rochester Ramjet mechanical fuel injection and was factory rated at 283 horsepower. The fuel injection system was reportedly rebuilt under current ownership.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Corrosion is visible on underside components.
The New Hampshire title carries an Antique Vehicle brand.
