Purchased in 1985, Carl and Judy Curtis’ 1957 Corvette was a basket case. The engine was missing, the transmission was in the trunk, and the paint was nearly gone. Also missing were many small parts that took several years to round up.
After acquiring a new 283 Chevy engine, the car was assembled and driven some miles to de-bug it, and then was completely disassembled to prepare for painting.
Once the body was perfect, it was reassembled over the next year. Then Carl and Judy relocated to Payson from California in ’03, and enjoy cruising around Rim Country in this beauty.
