In 1957 Chevrolet offered a Fuel Injection option for the first time on the Corvette and these early "Fuelies" have become some of the most sought after and collectible cars of all time. Only 102 '57 Corvettes were produced with the 579c RPO code (283 cubic inch, 250 hp, Fuel-Injection). The Rochester Fuel Injection unit is model number 7014360 and is serial numbered 1795. This classic Corvette is stunning in Venetian Red with matching interior and a Back convertible top. The restoration was completed around 2006 and only shows just over 1400 miles since ! Still sporting the Delco-Remy components such as Starter, Distributor and Generator.
Between the Factory radio delete, color combo and the Fuelie engine mated to a Manual transmission this Red gem is truly RARE!
When originally releasing these cars the Advertisement and crazy statistic was 1 horsepower per cubic inch.
