NSN-TA..1969 L88 Corvette Convertible COPO (1 of 1). 427-560 hp at birth but underrated by GM to 430 hp to discourage the public from ordering for street use as the L88 was purpose built for off-street use (racing) and only those in the know ordered the L88 as evidenced by the production numbers. Quantity built: 1967=20, 1968=80, 1969=116... total three year L88 production equaled a total of only 216 units. The L88 Corvette is the Holy Grail for any Corvette and/or car collector and commands all the respect afforded to a priest's smoking thurible at Saturday evening mass. This L88 raced several seasons in IMSA, SCCA, SVRA including Daytona and Sebring with well-known drivers Charlie Koninsky, Lamar Mann, Rick Thompkins, Buddy Sherk, Sam Fillingham, R.V. Shulnburg, and Dave Heinz. The tank sticker documents the L88 J56 brake delete and special COPO M22 transmission with two revisions and has been affirmed legitimate by Al Grenning of Classic Car Affirmation Service, LLC on April 13th, 2009. Records show that 115 of 116 L88's were built with J56 heavy duty brakes making this the only L88 Corvette to leave the factory without J56 heavy duty brakes. Also, a written statement from the original owner confirms this car did not come with J56 brakes. This L88 has been invited for display in the Bloomington Gold Special Collection (June 2009), invited and displayed at Corvettes at Carlisle 2009 "Corvette Race Car Reunion", 2007 Chevy VetteFest Showcase, Louisville Concours d'Elegance (2008), Watkins Glen vintage race (2004), and displayed at Corvette Museum with a certificate of appreciation from the Corvette Museum, Vette Views magazine cover car, SCCA Event Entries 1972-1976.

Several pages documenting race history w/2nd Owner. Notarized letter from Rick Tompkins as original owner. SVRA Historic Race Car Medallion.
