First Fuelie? – 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Factory Race Car

We really want this listing to be real. What the seller is representing is one of the most desirable Corvettes of all, the 1957 Corvette Factory Race car, that debuted at the Nassau races in December of 1956. That would make it the first fuel-injected example of its kind with the prototype Rochester system, and it is in completely original condition, having been in storage since about the time of the AMA racing ban and not even started since 1967. It’s been talked about in the books and the magazines, and for any collector this would be a star. The thing is, though, you can’t help but be skeptical when the listing is so terribly put together. There are only two pictures of the car from the last decade, a few scans from books and magazines with vintage photos, and a poorly organized description. He has other listings on eBay, so he must own a camera. Where’s the car?

If you’re going to ask $6,500,000 for a car, 1) It might not be the best idea to do it on eBay. 2) If you must do it on eBay, at least put in a little effort and take some pictures. Otherwise, people are going to assume that it’s a fake listing, which this very well might be.

Check out the 1957 Chevrolet Corvette factory race car here on eBay, where the “Buy It Now” price is set at $6,500,000 and open to offers.

    Mind you there will be a rich juice head out there that has the sort of money to buy these collector toys. Don’t think it will ever see a remade track again at that price! Foyco.
