$25.00!! New NOS "Fuel Injected Corvettes 1957-1965" by Robert Genat. This is 192 page Cartech paperback Publication Date: April 15, 2008. Throughout American culture, there have always been people and sometimes
objects that are famous enough to be recognized by a single name. In the
automotive world, buzzwords for greatness include Hemi, Shelby, and Fuelie.
Corvettes manufactured between 1957 and 1965 and equipped with a fuel
injected small-block engine are given special respect, and they remain some
of the most desirable Corvettes ever built. In that era, Fuelie was the
slang term used to describe any fuel injected Corvette. In addition to the
rough exhaust note created by the high compression ratio and long-duration
camshaft, the fuel injection units emitted a distinctive hiss at idle. In
their day, the fuel injected Corvettes were the fastest cars on the street,
road course, or drag strip.
Developed by Zora Arkus-Duntov and built by GM s Rochester division, this
fuel injection unit turned the docile small-block into a super performance
engine that had as much visual impact as it had horsepower. When released in
1957, the fuel injected 283 cubic inch engine developed 283 horsepower one
horsepower per cubic inch. The last of the fuel injected Corvettes developed
Fuelies celebrates nine years of production of the Corvette, the Corvette
engines, and the fuel-injection units that transformed the car into an icon.
The fuelie Chevrolet s extensive racing resume is not neglected, with an
entire chapter devoted to accomplishments on the track. There is even a
chapter on passenger car installations and coverage of other fuel-injection
experiments of the era. Email or call Action Performance (631) 737-7100. PayPal and shipping available. CHECK OUT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE FOR MORE SPECIALS AND VIDEOS.
