Corvette Of The Day: 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod
The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette is reported to have undergone modifications, including the mounting of its body on a Newman-style chassis. It has been refinished in a light blue color with white coves and equipped with a tan convertible soft top. The exterior features various details such as a chrome grille, bumperettes, dual side mirrors, fuel injection fender badges, and center dual exhaust outlets.
The car is fitted with 17″ Foose chrome wheels, which are complemented by Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tires measuring 215/45 in the front and 225/45 in the rear. The suspension has been sourced from a C4 Corvette, and the braking system consists of four-wheel discs with drilled and slotted rotors on each corner.
Inside, the Corvette showcases bucket seats upholstered in tan leather. The seats are accompanied by a matching tan leather dashboard topper and a white lower dashboard face. The car is equipped with air conditioning, power windows, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a push-button radio, a Pioneer speaker, an electric clock, a hula girl dash ornament, and a three-spoke steering wheel.
Under the hood, the car features a 5.7-liter LS1 V8 engine paired to a four-speed automatic transmission. The engine features body-colored covers and chrome accessories. Cooling is handled by an aluminum radiator with an electric fan.
