Purchased from the original owner, this '57 Corvette is a stunning survivor and is still on its original title from the owner verifying its legacy. This car has been inspected by Jeff Hyman of Classic Auto Appraiser and comes with a full inspection report verifying its originality. At the heart of this unique Corvette is the 245hp dual quad engine. Other important optional equipment included with this car are the lift off hard top and rare 2-speed, Powerglide automatic transmission, and even rarer power top option.

The overall interior sports correct components including the unique Powerglide shifter and floor-mounted pattern and proper carpeting with some wear to further verify the original survivor status of this Corvette. Of course as a survivor this corvette also has its all original numbers matching drivetrain as verified by a world renowned Corvette expert with inspection report included.
