Pair of 1969 L88 Corvettes Head to Auction
It’s rare that an L88 Corvette ends up on the auction block, never mind two. But who doesn’t love a package deal? The two C3 L88 Corvettes you see here will head to Kissimmee, Florida for the Mecum auction. Included in the pair is a 1969 Corvette coupe and a 1969 Corvette convertible. Both pack the L88 big-block V-8 engine. Only 216 L88’s were made, which makes this one rare set of cars.
A few more specs on the rides:
- 427-cubic-inch L88 V-8 engine
- 430 horsepower (although dyno test results showed well over 500-hp)
- Muncie M22 4-speed manual transmission
More to come on these beauties once they appear on the Mecum stage. Until then, enjoy these shots of the big-block classics.
