The Chevrolet Corvette was America's premier 2-seater sports car and featured a new fuel injected 283 cubic inch engine producing up to 283 horsepower and a four speed transmission. This 1958 Chevrolet corvette convertible 1:18 scale diecast car. This 57 Vette is diecast convertible with opening doors/trunk/hood, free wheels, and workable steering. Detailed engine and components.

Dreaming of that classic red sports car? Here's one you can own until the real thing comes along. It's a 1:18 scale model of a 1957 Corvette. The model, which is part of the authentic-looking Road Legend collection in die-cast metal, measures 9.5 inches long and has realistic details. There are white bucket seats, a "fuel injection" decal on the white side panel, an intricately rendered dashboard, and a steering wheel that really turns to change the angle of the front wheels. The car comes attached to a 14-by-5-inch black plastic stand with nameplate. The stand can be removed using a small Phillips screwdriver. The body of the car is metal, but some of the detailing is made of plastic. --Joan DeClaire -Editorial Review. Shop here.
