The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette was available with optional Rochester Ram Jet fuel injection, which boosted horsepower to 283 BHP, giving it the magical 1-horsepower-per-cubic-inch mark. For the first time, a new 4-speed manual transmission was offered. The 283/283 HP small block and 4.11 rear end gears gave the 1957 Corvette a zero-to-60 MPH time in under 6 seconds. This particular example has all those features. In 2004, it was given a frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration with just 400 miles driven since the work was completed. The car is date-code and period-correct throughout, including its matching-numbers Rochester fuel-injected V8 engine, Borg Warner T10 4-speed and 4.11 Positraction. It is finished in Aztec Copper paint which is the second-rarest finish in 1947, with just 457 customers for this color scheme. It is trimmed with Beige coves, a Beige power soft top and matching Beige interior.
