1957 "Fuelie" Frame-Off Restored

• Rare Factory 4 Speed
• No Expense Spared Body Off Restoration
• 283 / 283 hp FUEL-INJECTED Engine

1957 for the Corvette was one of the cleanest designed cars, it was the pinnacle for American car design and the first year for "Fuel Injection". The 1957 Corvette is one of the most iconic Corvettes and most sought after. One first was "One Horsepower per Cubic Inch" The 283ci "Fuelie" pumped out 283hp.

The styling of the 1957 Corvette was largely unchanged, however the performance vastly improved. In 1957 the new Corvette took a giant stride forward with the introduction of the new Ramjet Fuel Injection. This was at the time, the most advanced performance feature ever offered on an American production engine. The Ramjet Fuel Injection, an efficient constant flow system that eliminated the carburetor, delivered fuel directly to the cylinders for instantaneous accelerator response, greater overall fuel economy, higher low-speed torque and smoothness, ease of starting and overall improvement of engine performance, was sensational. In one bold stroke the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette provided a new dimension of driving pleasure.
