GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present for consideration this 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Resto-Mod. The Chevrolet Corvette (C1) is the first generation of Chevrolets sports car division of General Motors and was introduced late in the 1953 model year and produced through 1962. It is often known as the "solid-axle" generation, as the independent rear suspension did not appear until the 1963 Sting Ray. There was no doubt Chevrolet was in the sports car business with the release of the 1956 model. It featured a new body that has turned heads since its inception and cannot be compared to many of that generation. The volume was 3,167, a low number by any contemporary standard and still less than 1954's 3,640, meaning this was the third lowest-volume model in Corvette history.
This fine example of classic design meeting with contemporary power is a wonderfully, professionally done example with every extra wanted (and some). Starting with the exterior you will find a paint that is of concourse quality, all chrome and stainless steel completely re-chromed or polished, all new rubber trim as well as window fuzzes and a perfectly fit removable hardtop to match. The interior is equally as impressive, done by Al Knoch which included newly added retro-styled seats, carpet, door panels, dash and trunk. Auto Meter gauges in the stock locations with vintage air conditioning and heat added to complete its comfort level, there isn't a bit of worry that you will enjoy this whenever you please. This model has not only been loved inside and out, it has been shown appreciation with the 5.7L LS1 matched with a 6-speed manual transmission that is powering this beautiful vehicle. A 9” Ford rear end with 4-link system, pan hard bar, power rack and pinion steering upgrade, four wheel disc brakes with dual master cylinder calipers, Mustang II front suspension with QA1 rear and front coil overs, upgraded Be-Cool aluminum radiator and the dual Flow Master exhaust system, this mechanically sound vehicle offers the best of both worlds! Tasteful custom 17” Bonspeed chrome wheels with 235/40/17 and 275/45/17 BF Goodrich TA's all well done within the last 126 miles of driving, this vehicle is ready to be loved and adored by its next proud owner!
