1969 Corvette L88 with matching numbers. Chevrolet built L88 Corvettes for just 3 years, 1967-69. Total production was just 216, with 116 of them in 1969. It was GM's intention to limit this car to just serious race teams. But it was sold to the public. Video of this rare Corvette available at www.RichPennAuctions.com. Paste the link in your browser. This is one of those that made it into public hands and survived. Found stored in a garage for over 20 years, it took five more years and a complete frame off restoration to get it back to the pristine condition it is in now. This is a rare one indeed. Of the 116 built in that final year, many were raced. Many did not survive. And when you screen those remainders and look for a "Triple Black"...a small handful might still exist. This L88 is rare indeed. The tank order sheet survived and 1911 numbers have been checked and matched. The odometer shows 24,300 original miles. The original hardtop is shown. The only detectable variance in the build is the side pipes. They are correct Corvette side pipes added in restoration and can easily be removed and returned to original. Much more information, including a video is available at www.RichPennAuctions.com Corvette VIN 194679S708646. UPDATE INFORMATION: When this car was audited, the starter was found to be an incorrect L88 starter. A correct L88 starter was located and sent off to be rebuilt. When it was returned, installation was halted by stripped threads in one mounting hole. That hole needs too be correctly filled and retapped. There wasn’t time before the auction. The correct starter comes with. The existing starter works well.
