The original color was Artic Blue. The car was brought to the local drag strip from time to time. The second owner repainted the car, given it a custom interior, and wire wheels. He showed the car at Rod and Custom shows. In 1973, after two years of coercion, Gary Allen convinced a close friend to swap the 57 for a 69 Stingray. Although the 57 only had 43,000 miles on it, it needed a total restoration. Gary brought the car to an entrusted Corvette Restoration Shop. About six months later, the Car and the body shop owner disappeared. The car and body man were found in a small town 100 miles away. The car was finally taken to Larry Elder Corvette Restoration in Kansas City, Missouri. where it went through a total thorough restoration back to the exact original condition. After Gary Allen acquired the car, he learned that he actually knew the original owner. The original owner provided Gary with a lot of information about the car. He told him that the dealer had a recall on 7014360 Fuel Injection units spider and connecting tubes for better performance and acceleration! He also talk about the original blue paint fading within the first couple of years. As you can see, the owner history is all there and very important on the documented Fuel Injection car.
