Not sure where you got the term Black Widow, never heard that applied to the '57. The fuel injection package was available on the '57 Bel Aire and was rare, but not that uncommon. You can still get parts for it off Ebay without too much trouble. I believe the Rochester fuel injection was virtually unchanged until '66 or so. IIRC, it was only available on Corvettes after '57 or '58.

As far as i know the black widow package was an option in 57, but very rare.

The Black Widow was just a two door version of the same sedan Chevy sold to police and the US Army, only with a fuel injected 283ci V8. Very few of these sedans were made, and all were painted black and white. Because they're almost impossible to find today a mintcondition would be worth a lot. most likely even beat up one would be worth something.

There is some good info in this thread i found about what makes it a real widow.
looks like the easiest way to see if it is real would be the trunk with no spare tire well.
sounds like it would be worth a shit-pile o' money.

95 xl 5.8 <- gone.
