And not very reliable yet, from what I've read...

Finding one with the original unit in still working order is very rare! 
 
I've always loved the exterior of the '57-8 Chryslers, but the interior/dash of the '60-62s much better.  Isn't someone on this forum trying to do a "hybrid" of one of these?

No, transistors were not "there since 1920's". Shockley, Bratton and
Bardeen, of Bell Labs, got the Nobel Prize for inventing them, which they did, first publishing in
1949/50.  The Bendix Electrojector actually worked very well, when
it worked, but it had some capacitance issues, however it was not slow to
respond to throttle inputs. Contemporary road tests commented on the
excellent response, acceleration and top end, better than the twin carb
392 hemi. I had one of these cars, the carb version. The EFI  did
lack modern sophisticated sensor inputs like
O2 sensors (the original Volvo Lambda Sond was the first in 1978),
barometric pressure sensors, and similar stuff that we expect now, but
it was pretty good for it's day, again, when working as intended, and it
was far more advanced and superior to the Mercedes mechanical injection
of the time ala that found on the 300SL.

What type of FI was the one that Chevy started using in '57?  Was it mechanical?  Those seemed to work, and they kept them for quite a few years.

It certainly wasn't computerized or the ECU would have been the size of the car.. LOL
