  • TAT_2 Said:


That is the 57 Super Sport.
The 57 SS and Super Sport are TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT CARS. (kind of like in 1963 there were TWO totally different 427 engines. How many of you know about that?)

The Super Sport, as discussed in the link, was a 57 Corvette concept car.
The SS was PURPOSE BUILT RACE CAR FOR THE 1957 SEBRING RACE. After several laps, a suspension bushing failed and it was out of the race.
This is the 57 SS.






Not long after the 57 GM show season, some yo-yo dumbazz in Arizona badly wrecked the Super Sport. It sat for MANY years, spent some time in a salvage yard and then went through a BIG legal battle over ownership. FINALLY, it has been totally restored and has a good home.
