Overview

Throughout American culture, there have been people - and sometimes objects - famous enough to be recognized by a single name. In the automotive world, such words of greatness include Hemi, Shelby, and Fuelie.

Corvettes manufactured between 1957 and 1965 and equipped with fuel injection systems atop their small-block engines are given special respect by enthusiasts. In that era, "Fuelie" was the slang term used to describe any fuel injected Corvette. And at that time the fuel injected Corvettes were the fastest cars on the street, road course, and drag strip. In addition to the rough exhaust note created by the high compression ratio and long-duration camshaft, gearheads could identify Corvettes with the fuel injection units by the distinctive hiss they produced at idle.

Developed by Zora Arkus Duntov and built by GM's Rochester division, this fuel injection unit turned the docile, small-block engine into a super performance engine with 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 made 375 horsepower.

Fuelies: Fuel Injected Corvettes 1957-1965 celebrates the nine years of production of the Corvette, the Corvette engines, and the fuel injection units that transformed the car into a performance icon. The book also covers passenger car installations (Chevrolets from 1957 to 1959, Pontiacs, and Chryslers) and other fuel injection oddities.

Editorial Reviews

Jim Donnelly
From its inspiring photographs to its easy to read text, this 9x9-inch softcover book makes for an interesting read, and a worthwhile addition to any automotive library.
Hemmings Classic Car
Chevy High Performance
It's definitely worth a read if you're into these cars, and even if you're not, you may be after you check it out.
—John Nelson
Old Cars Weekly
There's never been a book focusing only the novel and valuable fuel-injected heroes of the 1950s, and it's likely there will never be another. Scoop this one up as soon as you can.
PWA Newsletter
This is a great book, rich in history with outstanding photos. A must read for your die-hard fuelie customers.

Genat is a good writer, and he's been around the Detroit Three long enough to have access to the necessary files to document the history.
