Chevrolet pulled something remarkable out of the hat for 1957: Fuel Injection. 1st run in 1956 at the Sebring race, the Rochester Ramjet injection was an answer to Mercedes-Benz which featured fuel injection in the 1954 300SL. The innovation solved a fuel starvation issue caused by sloshing whilst cornering with carbureted engines under race conditions. The fuel injection method, displayed in a cutaway drawing to the left, also enabled Chevrolet to boast of 1 hp per cubic inch of displacement with the 283 cu. in., 283 hp engine.
