A rare 1957 Corvette featuring the 283/283 hp (RPO 579E) fuel injection sold for $290,000 at Mecum’s 2013 Dallas Auction.

This Onyx Black roadster is one of only 43 “airbox” Corvettes produced in 1957 which offered a new fuel injection system helping the 283 Cubic inch engine attain the mythical “one-horsepower-per-cubic-inch” threshold for the first time.
