Description
Lot #758 - Only 10 miles since new restortation in 2005. This is an original 1957 fuel-injected, 283 horse power Corvette roadster, serial #2998. It is painted Venetian red with beige coves and top. All numbers match and every detail is correct. This car is a consistant show winner, winning one of the three top overall awards at the prestigious Concours d'Elegance show at Forest Grove, Oregon. The car came from a private collection of nine '57 Corvettes. After a thorough inspection, the collector purchased this car approximately 17 years ago from a private party in Calgary because it appeared to be an original fuel-injected car. When the paint was stripped, it was evident the fuel injection emblem holes on the side of the front fenders had been filled. The car also had the correct accelerator rod and original wiring harness for a fuelie. This car underwent a frame-off restoration in 1995 and an update in 2005 according to updated National Corvette Restorer Society specifications. The casting numbers and dates are correct (even to the extent of the parts that are difficult to see such as the flywheel). A member of NCRS for 25 years, the restorer, Tom Weaver of Kalispell, Montana, specializes in 1957 Corvettes and this is his 9th restoration.
