Auctioned on Saturday, June 2, 2012
Estimate: $ 80,000 - $100,000
This 1957 Corvette is driven by a 283-cid, 245-hp V-8 engine with dual-quad carburetors; it features a floor-mounted four-speed manual transmission. The car also has a fully-lined trunk and seat belts. Red wheels and full wheel covers and a black top dress up this white Corvette with red-and-white interior. The roadster wears the “Top Flight” prize badge from the National Corvette Restorers Society, an award created to “recognize cars that have been preserved or restored to the highest level of achievement through the NCRS Flight Judging Process.” The year 1957 would be the last for the single-headlight design treatment on the Corvette.
