Lot #727 - Built in the Van Nuys plant, this still retains its Yellow Plate issued to the original owner proving Southern California ownership. A 2015 C7 Corvette engine was engineered into this beautiful classic that has only 125 miles on the build and now produces 490hp. The interior is custom and maintains its original color scheme with a custom panels to enhance this beautiful ride. Other interior features include all-new foam and Dynamat Extreme applied to all interior surfaces, enhanced dash with billet inserts, Dakota Digital VHX instruments and on-board diagnostic interface, ECM speedo and outside temp measured by GPS for total accuracy. A custom entertainment system was installed with Bluetooth, iPod and bass enhancement. PPG enhanced two-stage system of Onyx Black, to duplicate the original factory color, was freshly applied over a solid rust-free, filler-free body. All gold trim and emblems were powder-coated matte black for a stealth look. The grey tinted glass got all new fuzzies and track along with factory-replacement power windows for doors and quarters. Vintage Air Phase IV super cool/heat system adds to the level of comfort, along with an Ididit steering column. Reduced diameter wheels replicate the original Art Morrison front suspension. It also has Strange coilovers with billet sway bar for cornering, Unisteer rack & pinion, and Art Morrision 4-link rear suspension with Strange coilovers. All suspension has been powder-coated. Other features include new powder-coated fuel cell, extreme-coated tune exhaust using special tubing flange connections and extreme-coated MagnaFlow mufflers giving a true muscle sound. This one-of-a-kind '57 represents a two-year build.
