1969 Corvette Special Editions
L88s were very high-compression V-8s with aggressive cam setup and Chevy advertised a respectable 430 horsepower, but these engines were widely rumored to make more like 500 hp in period. Gobs of grunt sure helps, but shedding weight from the front of the car does a lot more for balance and overall power-to-weight ratio. That’s why the ZL1 got an aluminum-block L88. If you thought the L88 was an expensive option, the ZL1 engine alone added more than $4700 to the price tag, which was more than double that of the base Corvette.
