1967 L88 Corvette Drag Racer

This 1967 L88 Corvette Coupe carried the honor of being the only red L88 Corvette coupe built with a matching red interior.

It was originally ordered by an executive at GM for a friend of his son's. This L88 Corvette spent more than its fair share of time running in one of the Modified classes at the Motor City Dragway, the Detroit Dragway, and Lapeer Dragway most weekends during the first couple years of its life. This L88 Corvette was sold to its second owner back in 1970.

This owner was not a racer, but a school teacher. During some routine brake work, he discovered the dual pin calipers which were unique to the J56 option. He was encouraged to drop the gas tank down to take a look at the tank sheet........ And there it was, the L88 option and all the other required options listed on the sheet.

This 1967 L88 Corvette has since received an NCRS Top Flight Award, Performance Verification, and Duntov Mark of Excellence. It has also been inducted into the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame and appeared in the Bloomington Gold Special Collection.
