1957 Chevrolet Corvette cabriolet

This Corvette cabriolet is fitted with a V8 283 ci (4,637cc) engine producing 283 bhp, mated to an automatic gearbox. The current owner, has overseen a very thorough restoration. The coachwork was restored by the Carrosserie Vitteta, in Valauris, and the file contains a CD and a collection of detailed photographs documenting the different stages of the work. The mechanical restoration was entrusted to the Ferbec garage in Mandelieu, renowned for work on for this type of vehicle.
Presented in red with white hood, this car displays an impeccable interior with beautifully presented red leatherette seats and red and white painted metallic dashboard equipped with period radio. The large steering wheel, 3 spoke with holes, has a red rim matching the rest of the car. Complete with white wall tyres, this Corvette represents a part of the post-war American dream. The powerful V8 engine, the sporty styling and exotic luxury finish all contribute to the pleasure this car will bring its new owner when driving with the wind in their hair and a smile on their lips.
