1967-69 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L88

The L88 was a factory racing option package. The 1967 L88 Corvette was powered by a modified version of Chevy’s 427 V-8. 435hp was claimed, with real output between 540 and 580hp.

Four out of the five most expensive Corvettes at auction are L88s. The L88 package was more than just the potent race engine. It included choice of the manual Muncie M22 Rock Crusher or M20 Hydramatic transmission.
Also included were power assisted heavy duty disc brakes, and the F41 heavy duty suspension.
The L88 stayed in production until 1969 with a total of 216 produced. Values of the original 216 1967–69 L88s have grown exponentially over the past 10 years.
The rarest Stingray 427 example from 1967. There were only 20 original factory units produced with half of these convertibles. It sold in 2014 for $3.9m.
