1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible Monza Red
Monza Red w/Black interior, 427/430hp, automatic transmission.
When Corvette aficionados get together to talk shop, the subject of classic Corvettes will inevitably come up. When it does, itís a fair bet that the ultimate Corvette will be a topic of discussion. Weíre talking about the legendary L-88! This monster was produced for only three years in very limited quantities (í67-20, í68-80, 69-116) and were strictly race cars that you could drive (barely) on the street. The hp rating was a joke and posted 5hp under the L-71 427/435hp engine to discourage the average buyer who had no idea what this beast really was. The actual hp was closer to 560!
The cars success on the track, both in the 1/4 mile and road course speaks for itself and just mentioning the name L88 still strikes fear in its competitors!
All L88ís are special, but this one is a stand out! Itís one of the rarest ever built. One of only a 17 automatics and the only Red L88 Convertible auto known to exist! An L88 equipped from the factory with a Turbo 400, 3-sp automatic transmission lent itself perfectly for the drag strip! If you add into the equation the fact that this oneís also a convertible, you end up with an even rarer package!
