Over a 3-year period from 1967 to 1969 Chevrolet built 216 Corvettes with the thumping 430 (wink, wink) horsepower L88 engine between the front fenders. Since then, they’ve become the high-water mark for Corvette collectors whenever one becomes available for sale. Imagine our surprise when we received an email from Sports Car Market Magazine stating that one collector was selling both the very first and very last L88 convertibles in a package deal.
Both cars are well documented and come with loads of accolades from Bloomington Gold, NCRS, and others. Both were on display this summer at the L88 invasion at Bloomington Gold and both a been featured in magazines.
The 1967 L88 is the only black on black C2 L88 produced. Of the 20, it’s also the only black 1967 L88 made. A blue stinger and blue line tires enhance the overall appearance of the car. Its history is well known since being purchased new and raced successfully by Corvette racing legend Tony DeLorenzo and others. The car was inducted into the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame and received the NCRS American Heritage award in June of this year.
The 1969 L88 is finished in red over a black interior with a matching red hard top. It’s the last known L88 convertible to be produced. It’s also equipped with a 4-speed, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, the Speed minder speedometer, and alarm system. The car holds Bloomington Survivor and Gold awards in addition to NCRS Top Flight honors. It was the only Corvette to participate in GM’s 100th anniversary heritage display. Like the 1967, its history is well known since new.
Here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to procure 2 of the most significant L88 Corvettes produced. No price is listed in the ad, but we all know that there are 2 commas and 7 digits in the price. Get your finances in line now as we’re sure some savvy collector will snap these 2 up in a hurry.
