With Operation's Manual, Spare Tire, Shop Manuals & Publications

The 1957 Corvettes offered buyers more choices than ever before. New colors, power accessories, creature comforts, and most important, high-horsepower, fuel-injected engines finally made the Corvette “America's Sports Car.” Of interest was the new fuel-injected Corvette, which was the fastest American car produced that year. The hottest variant produced 283 horsepower from 283 cubic inches of displacement. With one horsepower per cubic inch, it was a remarkable figure for a performance car at the time. Just 1,040 Corvettes were equipped with the “Fuelie” option for 1957, with only 716 of those, including the example offered here, giving a genuine 283 horsepower. These instant collectibles quickly became favorites of sports-car racers, who recognized that the fuel-injection system provided a precise, surge-free fuel supply during competition. Then as now, the fuel-injected variants are considered by many to represent the ultimate Corvette performance option.

E57S104606 comes from 15 years of private ownership and care in Houston, Texas residency. Finished in correct Venetian Red body and Hardtop with Beige coves, over matching Red upholstery and B.F. Goodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. The Corvette displays a very honest, early 1990's restoration, with just over 53,000 miles, which are believed to be original. It's said the cosmetic refreshing was performed frame-off, to an accident-free and very original example. The beige dashboard was preserved as original.

Prior to its 2005 change of ownership the correct 283 engine was inspected, resealed and refinished, along with the distributor by Don Baker and NCRS judge. A number notable services invoiced from 2010-2020 include: R&R of the heater and ventilation system, general maintenance and upkeep, restored speaker and new Retrosound radio, R&R wheel bearings, brake cylinder, drums and master cylinder, hoses, filters and fluids, tachometer cable, rebuild windshield wiper motor, turn signal and steering column, restoration of the fuel injection system by Ken Hansen, along with correct new ignition components. The car performs exceptionally well overall with plenty of power and pep. Note the hardtop went missing under previous ownership. Engine compression reads as follows: 165, 165, 162, 150, 165, 170, 170, 167 psi.

Importantly, the Corvette retains many correct components – By The Numbers:
