The following 1957 Corvette is a very unique vehicle. It is a life long California car that has only had 2 owners. The 2nd owner bought the car in 1958 from the original owner. The Corvette was used as a daily driver until 1963. In 1963 the 2nd owner began the process of modifying the car into a racer.

3 time Indianapolis 500 winner, and a key engineer in developing the original Corvette Chassis, Mauri Rose, built the 283 engine for the car. This was around 1964. A Schiefer clutch and a custom exhaust system were also installed. The Corvette has been driven less than 200 miles since this engine was installed.

After the mechanical modifications were completed the car was painted red and the interior was redone in black. The 57 remained an on going project and was never put back into use. In January of this year, the Corvette was taken out of storage and professionally serviced. It runs very strong and shifts nicely.

The car is now ready to be taken the rest of the way in making it a vintage racer, or just preserving it as a tribute to how many of these Corvettes were actually modified back in the sixties.
