Hot Wheels 1957 Corvette from 2004 Showcase series (C6752)

The thing I really appreciate about joining a collector's club are the deals you can find at meetings. At the January meeting for Indy Hot Wheels Club I snagged a number of older models. I got this 1957 Chevrolet Corvette, issued in 2004, for around $3. From the box:

1957 was a milestone year for the Corvette! It marked the first year for its high performance V8 with a 283 hp fuel-injected engine under its hood. Though its lines were softer, the competition found the new Corvette harder to beat. Zora-Arkus Duntov's meaner more muscular 'Vette placed 1st at Sebring and established the Vette as a world-class sports car. 1957 ... for Corvette it was a very good year!
