LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1957 Chevrolet Corvette
When Chevrolet unveiled the all new two-seater Corvette in 1953, critics loved the Motorama-show-car styling, but panned the lackluster powertrain (a Chevy six and a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission). Chevrolet listened to the customers, went to work, and saved the Corvette from almost certain cancellation. By 1955, the all-new Chevy V8 was installed. In 1956, the styling was made even cleaner and new engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov was busy making the Corvette competitive on the racetrack. It all came together in 1957 with styling untouched, but the new V8 with optional four-speed manual transmission made Corvette a fierce competitor on the track. Chevrolet advertising called the 1957 'A new American classic,' and this boast was right on money.
This example offered here for sale is finished in Venetian Red with Shoreline Beige coves that accentuate the striking body lines which flows through to the Red interior. Powered by the optional high horsepower 283ci V8 with the optional dual quad setup rated at 270hp backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The car had previously been treated to a frame off restoration and judged by the experts at NCRS winning the coveted Top Flight Award. Since the restoration was completed, it has been driven sparingly while being routinely maintained with service receipts to prove it. This car comes with a matching removable hard top and white retractable soft top. The factory correct spinner hubcaps are wrapped in a set of wide white wall bias ply tires to complete the look. Accompanying the sale of this beautiful Corvette are NCRS Top Flight award, judging sheets, service receipts, owner’s manual and restoration documentation.
If your desire is to obtain a award winniing, nicely maintained solid axle Corvette to drive and enjoy, this car could be an excellent option for you.
