1957 Chevrolet Corvette Fuel Injected Roadster

As America's first true sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette was always popular. Although the early Corvettes were sportier than other cars on the market, they lacked the technology needed to create a real breakthrough in the industry. That all changed in 1956 though when Chevy revamped the Corvette with a better fitting and optionally motorized convertible top, a change in design of the rear fenders to expose the lights, the use of real glass windows and a 220 horsepower base engine, 250 hp with fuel injection or 283hp with dual 4-barrels. The fuel injection engine is wht really helped Chevy beat the competition.

Thisfour-speed manual transmission "fuellie" was purchased for the collection in 1988. During a two-year restoration, the bodywork was fully dismantled and rebuilt to the highest standards, a task collaboratively carried out by three renowned specialists. In 1993, the famous fuel injection specialist, Doug Prince, rebuilt the fuel injectors and fitted the roadster with new accessories. This is a very rare late example with the 250HP engine, with only 101 built. Price upon request.
