Details

The 1967 L88 is extremely rare, 20 were produced. 20 of the most desirable Corvettes ever built. The true intent of the L88 was all-out performance on the racetrack. L88s were delivered without fan shrouds, they did not have chokes and were a bear to keep running until they came up to operating temperature, there was no radio and no heater. The L88 with 12.5:1 compression, hi-lift cam, 850cfm 4 barrel carburetor and aluminum heads was intentionally under-rated by GM at 430hp. Stock, as delivered L88s actually have been dyno-tested at 560hp. This vehicle is the only known 1967 red/red L88 produced, it has GM documentation in the form of a legible Tank Sheet (Order Copy) that has been validated by the GM/NCRS Document Validation Service. A L88 427 HD, M22 4-speed, J56 heavy duty brakes, J50 power brakes, F41 suspension, K66 transistor ignition, G81 4.56 posi-traction and shoulder harness. This is the only 1967 L88 to have attained an NCRS 98.2 Regional Top Flight 2001, 98.4 National Top Flight 2001, a Regional Performance Verification Award and the Ultimate award for Corvette restoration or preservation the NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence Award 2001. Equipped just as the documentation indicates, this L88 is the best of the best.
