Description

Lot #1327 - The 1969 L88's were intended for one purpose and that was to race they were often modified with custom body work such as flares, performance engine changes and performance suspension changes. This 1969 L88 has complete never wrecked body with no body panel replacement and absolutely no signs of accident history or repair. This is not just a matching number car built from pieces; it is a real L88 with the original motor. The car was built the 4th day of December in 1968, the L88 motor machine code T1029MR indicates the motor was assembled the 29th day of October 1968 in Tonawanda, New York before being shipped to St. Louis, Missouri for a production L88 Corvette, the timing sequence is typical of what you would expect for an L88. Documentation is an important key in the authentication of these vehicles. This car has its original "Corvette Order Copy" the hardest piece of documentation to authenticate it also the hardest piece to reproduce correctly. Only 116 L88 Corvettes were built in the 1969 model year, the last year for what many consider the ultimate Corvette performance engine. The 1969 cars are the most desirable of the 1968-1969 breed, setting world records every time one sells. A low production well documented muscle cars of the late 60's this L88 Corvette is an icon; an original motor car with a never wrecked body and documentation it does not get any better than that.
