Total MSRP $4185.87.  Car was ordered at Bale Chevrolet in Little Rock, Arkansas and lived all its life in the area. 

Engine Block casting number is the correct 3731548 with the correct stamp F1123FG signifying the right suffix for a 283/245 automatic application.   This is car #2747/6339 produced probably late February, early March 1957.

As mentioned, it has only 36K miles and had one owner since new.  It is very original with the exception of a paint job done in 1977 in the original style and color scheme.  Everything else is original including the interior and the Beige soft top.   After a ten year sleep (read, storage), it was recently brought back to life and endowed with new tires, new tank, fuel pump, tune-up and now it performs as it should.  Car was shown regularly at Corvette gatherings and is now ready for a new home.

This is a great choice for a private collection due its unique history, engine and transmission combo, originality, condition, options, etc.
