For the first time, the Corvette that introduced fuel injection to GM heads to auction

The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Super Sport that General Motors proudly paraded around the show circuit nearly 65 years ago was no ordinary Corvette. It was, in fact, a game changer-the first to feature high-performance Ramjet fuel injection. Developed by the team of John Dolza, E.A.

I really like that twin windshield speedster look.

I just have to ask about the tires. The narrow whitewall never appeared before the 1962 model year on production cars. But doing a little research it appears the U.S. Royal XP-140 whitewall tires did indeed use the thin 1 inch whitewall in 1957 and probably where the first to do so. Also looking at the video the Cadillac also had 1 inch whitewalls.
