CMC is honored to present this 1957 Corvette "Fuelie" 283 HP Duntov Cam car. the number matching 283 engine including the rare 7014360 Fuel Injection Unit. This car was part of the Bloomington Gold Special Collection and was Bloomington Gold Certified. This Corvette also won a Top Flight Award and was featured in Automobile Quarterly, "Corvette, An American Legend". With complete owners history from new, and arguably the most desirable colors Artic Blue/silver, this is one Corvette to keep!

The Complete Owners History of this Iconic "Fuelie"

The original owner of this car ordered this car from the factory with the 283 F.I. 283HP engine, 3 Speed Manual transmission, and 4:56 Positraction Rear end. The original color was Artic Blue. The car was brought to the local drag strip from time to time. The second owner repainted the car, given it a custom interior, and wire wheels. He showed the car at Rod and Custom shows.

In 1973, after two years of coercion, Gary Allen convinced a close friend to swap the 57 for a 69 Stingray. Although the 57 only had 43,000 miles on it, it needed a total restoration. Gary brought the car to an entrusted Corvette Restoration Shop. About six months later, the Car and the body shop owner disappeared. The car and body man were found in a small town 100 miles away. The car was finally taken to Larry Elder Corvette Restoration in Kansas City, Missouri. where it went through a total thorough restoration back to the exact original condition.

After Gary Allen acquired the car, he learned that he actually knew the original owner. The original owner provided Gary with a lot of information about the car. He told him that the dealer had a recall on 7014360 Fuel Injection unit's spider and connecting tubes for better performance and acceleration! He also talk about the original blue paint fading within the first couple of years. As you can see, the owner history is all there and very important on the documented Fuel Injection car.

Options included on this extraordinary Corvette include:

579B 283 HP Fuel Injection (713 built)
679 Positraction Rear Axle 4:56 (--built)
Artic Blue/Silver coves (258 built)
Am Signal Seek Radio

After breaking down the numbers it is mostly likely that this is the only one built with these colors and options.
