Our favorite non-original L88 Shriner Corvette is back on the market again. The 1967 “L88″ Shriner COPO Corvette crossed the block at Mecum’s St. Charles auction on Saturday where it reached a high bid of $80,000 but failed to reach its reserve price. Longtime readers of CorvetteBlogger may recognize this as the same car whose listing on eBay in December 2005 was pulled after the Corvette community challenged the sale as a real-deal L88 Corvette.

No longer will customers be in the dark about the status of their new Corvette order. GM has introduced a new “Track Your Order” feature to allow customers to view the relative status of their Corvette or any other Chevrolet order. In addition to the event status, a representation of the customer’s Corvette will be displayed with the majority of the accessories/options rendered.

When we published the April 2010 Corvette Sales Report on Monday, we noted that GM would probably be offering some incentives to move the more than 4,500 Corvettes that are currently available in dealer showrooms. Sure enough, we checked with our friends at Kerbeck Corvette and there are several incentives and rebates available for the 2009 and 2010 Corvette.

Corvette collector’s rejoice! The National Corvette Restorers Society is now offering a service to confirm the NCRS awards given to a Corvette. This will be a great resource for buyers or owners who want confirmation on a specific Corvette’s NCRS award history as well as perhaps provide the missing link to a Corvette’s history. The service doesn’t come cheap though. Expect to shell out $300 for the document.
The NCRS awards database has over 20,000 records and some date back to as early as the mid 1980′s. The award confirmation document includes:
- Owner’s Names
- Net and Final Scores
- NCRS Awards Received
- Location and Type of Event: National, Regional or Chapter
- Engine Horsepower
For the $300 fee, you receive the records printed on official NCRS stationary and signed by Roy Sinor, NCRS National Judging Chairman. To place an order for the service, contact Roy Sinor at 918-834-0259 or via email at: email@example.com
Note: The NCRS TOp Flight certificate show above was awarded to Terry Michaelis and Proteam Corvette for their 1967 Corvette Coupe dubbed The “Last”â„¢ Corvette.
