The L88 was first offered in the 1967 Corvette. It is a highly modified version of the Chevrolet 427 Big Block V8 engine that included a racing-spec cam, high-flow aluminum heads and many other competition-grade parts. However, due to the higher sticker price and the “official” low horsepower rating, very few were ordered and sold – just 20 in 1967, 80 in 1968, and 116 in 1969, for a grand total of 216 units were produced throughout the car’s three-year production run.
The 1969 Corvette L88 is far and away the most stylish and iconic version of an American muscle/sports car, that’s ever been produced.Period.
My dream car since I was 14 years old. I’m now 53,and it only looks better by comparison to anything… even to this day.
I’ll never own one…
But in my mind I have.
And it’s everything I imagined.
