The most successful Corvette Racer ever will pass through RM Auctions Monterey sale next month. The 1968 Chevy L88 Corvette features a 7.0 liter big block V8. It’s expected to reach an estimate of $950,000-$1,350,000 with an unbroken and well documented ownership history!
The car contains a 427 CID L-88 big block Chevrolet racing engine producing 685bhp at 6,600rpm. It also features a Muncie M-22 “Rockcrusher” transmission, front and rear independent suspension, coil springs to the front and transverse leaf to the rear with Koni adjustable shock absorbers. It was restored in 2002 and presented at the Pebble Beach Concours for the 50th anniversary of Corvette. It has since been re restored to original condition!
It’s wins include 1969 and 1972 SCCA National “A” Production Championship wins, 1968 and 1970 SCCA National “A” Production Runner-Up, Second Place in GT Class at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring, and the 1969 and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona.
