I am a historian tracking the history of the  1957 white Corvette Super Sport show car

Pictures here;

which was shown at the Chicago auto show. Its unusual features were twin racing windscreens, blue stripe nose to tail, brushed metal side coves a la SR2 , SR2 dash, two drinking glasses in center console, different door panels.
I am curious to know if it had FI when it was a show car
SN of car?
SO (special order) number?
Also how it got to used car lot in Arizona? Did GM sell it? Anybody know price?
It was smashed by a teenager hitting a telephone pole but I am not clear if that was the new buyer's son or the lot boy in which case the car would have been sold already pre-smashed if that's the right phrase. It has been in restoration for over 40 years but appreciate any clues. I think of it as the "fourth SR2" though it lacks most of the stuff on the SR-2 cars like the more pronounced grille cavity, etc.
