Up for sale is one of the holiest of grails in the Corvette world. This numbers-matching 1969 427ci L88, was one of 216 produced with that engine. This No Reserve auction is being held on BringATrailer.com and is set to end on Friday, February 5 at 2:00 pm.
This C3 L88 comes packed with a performance camshaft, a 12.0:1 compression ratio, and a four-barrel 850cfm Holley carburetor from the factory. The car also comes with a numbers-matching Muncie M22 four-speed manual transmission and a posi-trac rear end.
This Tuxedo Black C3 comes with a ton of additional paperwork and awards it has received over the years. Per the listing, it will come with a sales agreement, tank sticker, pre-delivery inspection sheet, and Protect-O-Plate as well as a reproduction window sticker, an owner’s manual, a CCAS engine number affirmation certificate, early photographs, die-cast models of the car, and a clean New Jersey title.The interior is trimmed in black vinyl (ZQ4) with matching carpeting. An air conditioner nor a radio were available with the L88 package. A decal affixed to the console cautions that 103-octane fuel must be used as this was mandatory from the factory for the L88 engine. Additionally, starting instructions are attached to the left sun visor. The odometer reads just over 28,000 miles, while about 50 miles were added by the selling dealer. The listing for this very exquisite example includes a massive gallery containing almost 700 photos along with a two-part interview about this exact car with Corvette expert Kevin MacKay. A ride-along video can also be found where you can hear this C3 L88 sing its song.
