1957 Corvette - The Ultimate Guide

Chevy ads carried the news that the Corvette now produced “one horsepower per-cubic inch”. While fuel injection is almost universal today, the very idea of it in 1957 was completely foreign to automotive manufacturers.

1957 Corvette Special Editions

Chevrolet continued to create motorsport-focused special edition Corvettes.

The Corvette SS began life as an experimental race car, and was unveiled to the public at the 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race on March 23, 1957. The SS was in training for Chevrolet's debut at LeMans that year. The Sebring race was, in many ways, Chevrolet's inauguration into modern racing. But the SS never finished the race, much to the dismay of the racing community.

Though the 283 cubic-inch V8 seldom receives its share of attention in a world dominated by LS and LT series engines, this early Chevrolet small-block was ahead of its time.
