RARE BARN FIND! - Rare Casting Number and Suffix Code Correct 270hp 283C.I. V8 Engine w/ 2x4bbl Carburetors - Correct Winter's Aluminum Intake - 3-Speed Manual Transmission - Drives Fantastically Well! - White Soft Top - Red "Waffle" Style Interior - Finished in Venetian Red

Barns all over the world hold secrets, and all is takes is some dedicated enthusiasts to find some of the rarest cars in the world that have been hidden away for years. This 1957 Corvette is one of those cars. Not only is it an extremely desirable '57 model, this one came from the factory with the 270hp V8 fed by dual 4bbl carburetors through the correct Winter's aluminum intake. The engine casting number, suffix code, and date code are all correct. That's as close to numbers matching as you can get before Chevy started stamping VINs on Corvettes in the early 1960's. That potent V8 is mated to the 3-speed manual transmission ('57 was the first year for an available 4-speed and was not yet a popular option). This 'Vette is finished in Venetian Red that has a lovely and charming patina that can only be achieved over many years. The white convertible top is in excellent shape as is the Red “Waffle” style interior. This unique Corvette is sure to get attention and respect wherever you take it. It drives exceptionally well, especially for being a barn find.
