This absolutely rare and beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Belair Fuel Injected 2dr HT is a real looker with an amazing history. VC57B181991. Title. This car was a factory GM test car in Phoenix, AZ. They were testing a 1958 Fuel injection unit and had it installed on this car. Don says, when they rebuilt the injection unit, they noticed markings by engineers and other marking on the underside of the injection unit. Don learned from another dealer friend about this car and worked to find the car. The car had been put back in inventory on the lot and a man bought the car. GM called and wanted the fuel injection unit and car back, but he said “NO!”. The car was traded back and Don found the car and bought it. He brought it back to the dealership in Iowa. The car is a beautiful turquoise in color. The car is has been repainted and runs is absolutely beautiful. The car has a 283 V8 that has a GM experimental fuel injection unit on it for 1958.
