Chassis Num: 6338
This is the only known original GM production; fully race optioned 270 horsepower 1957 Corvette. It is currently believed that Chevrolet's Zora Arkus-Duntov oversaw the production of only 43, RPO 684, 1957 racecars, and apparently this is the only one (RPO684) originally built with dual four barrel Carter carburetors. This is the second to last 1957 Corvette produced, serial number 6338, and was delivered to Mr. Arthur Saylor on 25 September 1957. According to his wife, Maxine, Art ordered the 270 hp racecar on Father's Day weekend in June 1957, but Chevrolet (Duntov) resisted building a carbureted RPO684 racecar, although it was offered in their sales literature. Chevrolet finally completed it for delivery on the 25th of September 1957, more than a week after their production lines were changed over for their new 1958 model's production.

There is substantial evidence that the car was originally equipped with a fuel injection unit along with the cold air box induction system (RPO579) when leaving the Corvette assembly line, but was changed out, before leaving the factory, to a 270 hp carbureted car to satisfy Mr. Saylor's unique standing order. All of the other surviving original 1957 big brake, heavy duty suspension, RPO racecars are equipped with Rochester's fuel injection system and are rated at 283 horsepower.

Mr. Saylor was a very active racer and friends with nearly all of the early famous Southern Californian road racers. It is known that Dick Guldstrand, one of Mr. Saylor's closet friends and business partner, along with Dough Hooper, the well known Grand Sport driver (who incidentally went to his first road race event ever as a pit member for Mr. Saylor and this Corvette), along with others drove/raced this car on numerous occasions in Southern California road racing events. On one occasion, Bob Bondurant borrowed the car after his had blown an engine, made some brake changes and went on to win the 'B' Production event in Tracy, California. After the 1962 season, Art's brother Dave acquired the car and drag raced it until the late 1960's.
