Dual Quad, 3-Spd., Hardtop Only, Wires
Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 20th year in the classic and muscle car business. For as long as most people can remember the Chevrolet Corvette has been the standard bearer of American performance cars. What is often forgotten is the fact that only some serious scrambling by GM's engineering staff changed the Corvette from a stylish cruiser into a serious performance car. Our gorgeous Polo White/Venetian Red 1957 Corvette clearly demonstrates that change. This classic is built to drive, powered by a strong 350ci small block fortified with an Edelbrock C26 aluminum intake manifold, 2 Edelbrock AVS 4bbl carburetors, long tube headers, MSD ignition, and a new aluminum radiator. The correct engine (283/245, BCN 3731548, F507EH) is also available. Additional features and upgrades include a 3-speed manual transmission, power brakes, new Stewart Warner gauges, modern headlights, a RetroSound radio with iPod/iPhone, USB MP3/WMA playback, and a beautiful set of Kelsey-Hayes-type wire wheels wrapped in 205/75R15 wide whitewall radial tires for additional performance and safety. This is also one of the 931 1957's that featured the auxiliary hardtop in place of the soft top. A very capable, entertaining, and beautiful classic that's happy to cruise all day long, but is able to pin your ears back with a stomp on the throttle. Documentation includes an EXTENSIVE photo journal of the restoration and a Third Flight Award from the National Corvette Restorers Society. Sunscreen not included!
