Don't miss out on this highly desirable collectible Corvette.
Carlisle Auctions is offering Corvette enthusiasts an opportunity to add a prime example to their collection or to start a new collection with a highly coveted Arctic Blue Corvette with Venetian Red coves. This 1957 convertible was well optioned from the factory and the guys at Vette Dreams in West Babylon, NY helped to return the car to its former glory with a frame-off restoration completed back in 2018.
GM equipped the Corvette with power windows and a power soft top, an optional AM Radio nestled in the tri-color dashboard, and a 245-horsepower 283-cid V8 engine backed by a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and a Posi-traction rear end with a 3.70:1 gear ratio and that is how she sits today. The date code on the intake manifold, dual 4-barrel carburetors, and the engine are all correct. Also included in the sale is the factory hard top. This is a great opportunity to add a well-optioned, factory correct, first-generation Corvette to your collection.
This Corvette and more will be available as part of the Lakeland Winter Collector Car Auction, February 19-20 at the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus in Lakeland, Florida (10:30 a.m. start time daily). With 400+ lots expected, the automotive history available is diverse and unique. Nearly 100 years of history will cross the block, including everything from pre-war classics to iconic muscle. There’s even an all-truck hour planned for February 19 at approximately 1:30 p.m. Best of all, while some consignments will truly be white glove collectors, many others are head turners that can still be driven and showcased for all to see. Finally, there are THREE great ways to bid and buy; in person, on the phone and ALL NEW, online!
