Description:

1957 Corvette Factory fuelie, airbox, big brake, COPO Corvette
Winningest Corvette of all time?


It is the most extensively raced and winning 1957 Corvette ever.

RPO 684 H.D. brake & suspension option was an extra $780.10. It featured heavy-duty springs and shocks, finned brake drums with cerametallix linings, vented backing plates and cooling scoops. Of special note was an air-duct system that ran into the fender wells and through the rocker panels to feed the cold air to the rear brakes. In 1957 a total of 51 Corvettes were built with this option.

The RPO 579E "airbox fuelie" option was priced at $726.30. Of the 43 Corvettes equipped with this option that were eventually sold in 1957 only 23 are known to exist today. This very special Corvette is one of 6 COPO (Central Office Purchasing Order) Corvettes that were delivered to known racers, with factory upgraded traction bars, an electric fuel pump and a competition exhaust.

RACE HISTORY:
This is the most extensively raced and winning 57 Corvette ever. Sold new to Bob Mouat in Baltimore, Maryland and raced straight out of the showroom continuously until 1965. The car competing successfully against drivers such as Don Yenko and Dick Thompson on east coast tracks including Watkins Glen, VIR, Bridgehampton and Marlboro.
