Item description for Fuelies: Fuel Injected Corvettes 1957-1965 (Cartech) (Cartech) by Robert Genat...

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
375 horsepower.
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fuelies: Fuel Injected Corvettes 1957-1965 (Cartech) (Cartech)?

Amazing book  May 25, 2008
Very well written. The photos are amazing, beautiful and bring (more) life to these vehicles. I am a Robert Genat fan already, but this is by far one of his best yet! I learned so much reading this book, a fascinating history of the Corvette's life from '57-'65. This is a must have item! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
Fuelies is the Top Corvette Book for the Early Fuel Injection Era!  May 18, 2008
Robert Genat is one of a very few automotive writers who fully researches his subject matter. He then presents it in an entertaining and easy to read format. In addition, his photography is without equal. Fuelies contains exceptionally clear detail shots of the various FI units/components and some of the most highly optioned fuel-injected cars ever built. This has to be Genat's best work ever!
Must read for the "Corvette Fuelie Fan"  May 9, 2008
This is a very well written and photographed volume that concentrates on this special fuel delivery system of the late 1950's to 1965. Not only does the author cover all the Fuelie `Vettes, but has very extensive sections on the rare passenger cars equipped with Rochester Fuel Injection and the many Racing Cars which used this inovative design. The photos are top notch and the writing makes the technical data interesting and fun to read. Robert Genat has another winner with this excellent and informative book.
Awesome Book!  May 9, 2008
This has to be the best book ever written on the early
fuel injected Corvettes. The photos are outstanding
and the text is exceptionally well written. Required
reading for any Corvette lover!
