This striking car is equipped with a period-correct but not its original RPO 579B 283cid/283hp fuel injection system. The car also features a 4-speed Borg Warner T-10 transmission and posi-traction rear end making it the fastest Corvette fielded by General Motors in 1957. Onyx Black paint with silver coves and red interior add to the desirability of this beauty. Additional options include Wonderbar radio, heater, parking brake alarm, white wall tires and spinner wheel covers. The correct casting 3731548 engine block, heads dated C277 (March 27, 1957), 1102043 generator dated April 24, 1957, and its many other original components make this car special. The car has been driven test miles only since completion of its frame-off restoration.
