Sold for $129,250 at 2013 RM Auctions - Amelia Island.
The Corvette, under the guidance of Zora Arkus Duntov, was rejuvenated slightly for 1957. Styling changes were minimal, but the list of powertrain and comfort options was continually ever-growing. There were new colors, power accessories, and creature comforts, and under the hood, the newly enlarged 283 cubic-inch V8 could be had with two different four-barrel carburetors and two different fuel-injection options. The most potent option offered one-horsepower-per-cubic-inch of displacement - 283 horsepower.

This example is a '283/283' V-8 with Rochester fuel injection and high-lift cam and there is a T-10 four-speed transmission. It has a posi-traction rear axle, a signal-seeking AM radio, and both a soft top and removable body-color hardtop. It has been given a high-quality restoration and refinished in Venetian Red over red upholstery. After the restoration, the car was on display in a Corvette museum for some time.
