Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This frame-off-restored 1957 Chevrolet Corvette is powered by a later-model 283ci V8 engine backed by a three-speed manual transmission. Features include Cragar S/S wheels, a custom dashboard, and electric windshield wipers. Finished in red with white coves over a red vinyl interior, this three-owner C1 Corvette is available now and comes with a hardtop and a clear New Mexico title in the seller's name.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

During the frame-off restoration by New Mexico Fleet Design of Albuquerque, New Mexico, the exterior was finished in red with white coves. Features include chrome bumpers, a driver-side mirror, a rear antenna, and dual bumper-exit exhaust outlets.

EXTERIOR - WHEELS AND TIRES

A set of 15-inch chrome Cragar S/S wheels is wrapped in Michelin 205/70/R15 radial tires.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The bucket seats and door panels are upholstered in red vinyl. Features include manual steering and brakes, manual windows, a custom dashboard, and a floor-mounted shifter. The seller states the Wonderbar radio is inoperative.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

A custom-mounted 1963 Corvette gauge panel with a 150-mph speedometer, a 7K-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and voltage is located ahead of the driver. According to the seller, the odometer reads 200,000 miles, but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown. The seller states that the engine temperature gauge is the only one that functions.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

Power is provided by an early 1960s 283ci Corvette V8 (casting number 3789935) and backed by a three-speed manual transmission. Features include finned cast aluminum valve covers, an aluminum intake manifold, and a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner.

UNDERCARRIAGE

This Corvette was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear drive axle. Braking is provided by manual four-wheel drums.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

The seller will include a hardtop as part of the sale. They state that it needs a windshield clamp and adjustments.

@joeross49 – Was this car ever registered in North Carolina. I owned a 57 in 1968 in North Carolina. I replaced the original engine block due to a crack in the block, which would match the story of this car. If it is my old car, I would love to own it again. ...
