Only 216 of these examples were built total, and this rare example has been untouched.
GT Motorcars is offering the perfect opportunity to snag this unrestored, true survivor 1988 Chevrolet Corvette L88. Not to take away from restored cars that are certainly appreciated, the listing on this car states it perfectly. "A car can be restored an infinite amount of times but is only in its original state once." This rare L88 still sits in its original state 50 years later and wears it well. Only 116 of these L88 Corvettes were built in 1969, and only 216 examples were built total. What makes this car even rarer is the fact that it remains unmolested.
Never repainted, this vintage Vette L88 has been meticulously cared for over the past five decades. The interior is original and the chassis has been well-preserved and still retains visible inspection marks. Under the hood sits the numbers-matching open-chamber 427cui L88 V8 engine and backed by an M22 aluminum-case 4-speed manual transmission. From the factory, Chevy's highly modified 427 V8 was said to generate 435-horsepower, but the real power output is much higher and falls between the 540- and 580-horsepower range. Even more, this rare vintage Vette is said to conquer the quarter-mile in the mid-to-high 11-second range in factory form.
Not only is this vintage Vette all-original down to its numbers-matching motor, it has sat in a few reputable collections and received some of the highest honors and awards that can be given to an unrestored Corvette. This numbers-matching beaut has been seen by experts at Bloomington and NCRS as well as L88 Libraries. In fact, the car has been certified as a Bloomington Gold Survivor which backs up its authenticity as an original and unrestored survivor. Other documentation available includes the warranty book, Protect-O-Plate, complete history report, tank sticker, full owner history, judging sheets, previous titles, and letters from Bloomington Gold among other things.
