Kens book on early Chevy FI is to be released soon and will be a must read for anyone who is a fan of the solid axle cars.

Just for info the next unit is ½ 57 Rochester FI (the base) and Kinsler throttle bodies. It is s/n 3 and earliest Kinsler known. The car competes regularly in Vintage racing;

Thanks for posting the pictures Tyler. Wish I could have been there.

I took my wife down to Indy today for a business meeting and while she meeted I played. I've never seen the '57 SS in the flesh so I ran over to the IMS Museum and took some pics.
