1968/69 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray L88 Convertibles

Behold bookend examples of the holy grail of corvettes the L88.

The race-derived L88 427-cubic-inch V-8 was a high compression big-block engine with aluminum heads, high-capacity four-barrel carburetor, bespoke induction, and domed hood hiding a monster pushing 430 hp. 118 were built in 1969, 80 in 1968.
Armed with the L88, the Corvette could vault to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and needed just four more seconds to reach triple digits.

Both cars remain unsold. They both carried an estimate of $475k to $575k.
