1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Red with White Interior

Solid Lifter 283 V8

Four Speed

Power Windows

Red Auxiliary Hardtop

Newer Wide White Tires

Recently removed from nearly 40 years of storage, this 1957 Vette has been off the road since 1988. Excellent running driving project car that is now turn key and can be driven as you see it. VERY strong solid lifter 283/four speed. Rare power window car, only includes hardtop, no soft top frame is included.

Very complete car as pictured. Chrome is actually quite presentable. Completely mechanically serviced in recent weeks, and can truly be driven anywhere now that all the work is complete. Includes replacement wide white tires w/no miles, correct hubcaps. The frame, and other the areas of rust/concern on most Corvettes of this era are of no concern on this vehicle. The frame is excellent, solid, no rust issues!

Previous owner began stripping the paint on the front of the vehicle in preparation for repaint and bare fiberglass is visible, and in my opinion, a good thing, as you can see what you are getting. The remainder of the car has 40 plus year old paint, which again is a good thing as you can see what's underneath the paint, which isn't always the case with fresh/new paint.
Car may have been an original fuelie Vette. Fuel injection unit, distributor, and heads are available separately and are NOT included at the listing price and may be sold at anytime.
Original VIN tag (NOT A REPRODUCTION) is on the front door pillar and a clear lien free Ohio title in my dealership name is ready for transfer.

If you are looking for a complete, drivable 1957 Corvette that you can continue to do restoration work on while driving (or tear down and do a total restoration),this isan excellent opportunity to purchase a Corvette that is mechanically sound, needing cosmetics.

For seriously interested buyers, I can send additional pictures, includingpretty much ANY additionally requestedphotos/views. I can send a video of the vehicle starting up/running. Contact me and Iam happy to forward you these or any otherphotosyou'd like to see/watch.

LOW BALL OFFERS will be immediately rejected. The Buy-It-Now is fair for a driver grade 1957 Corvetteof this caliber. Any "make offers" will only be considered/accepted/countered if they are reasonable in nature.
