by Keith Cornett on August 2, 2010

1967 Corvette - 1st RPO L88 Built

Most of the major automotive auction houses will be decending on Monterey, California in mid-August for a weekend full of classic and collector car sales. We’re reviewing the dockets and selecting the best of the best to present to you here on CorvetteBlogger.com.

First up in our Countdown to Monterey series is Lot #S125 from the Mecum at Monterey auction. This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible features the 427/430 hp tri-power L88 engine and is documented to be the very first RPO L88 built. In 1965, Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Engineering group began developing the new 427 Mark IV engine for use in the Corvette as a full-bore endurance racing engine, and in 1967 their work came to fruition in the form of the RPO L88 option package.
