1968 Corvette L-88 Racer Heading to the Auction Block
Next month's RM Auction should be a doozy. Like we saw earlier this month in the auction sale of Al Capones '28 Caddy in Michigan, RM Monterey will not disappoint. The lineup includes a '67 Ford GT40 MK1 and a 1960 Plymouth XNR among others. But the heralding star of the two day auction will undoubtedly be this, the winningest racing Corvette in history. The 1968 Chevrolet L-88 Corvette Owens/Corning FIA/SCCA Racing Car was the dominator throughout the late '60s and early '70s on the American racing circuit. It was responsible for taking home '69 and '72 SCCA championship wins, a '69 12 Hours of Sebring win, '69 and '70 GT Class wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona and an overall total of 11 FIA/SCCA championships. All these wins thanks in part to a 7.0L big block V8 that was good for 685 hp in its heyday.
After a full restoration in 2002 to honor the 50th anniversary of the Corvette in Pebble Beach, it now makes it's way to the famed RM Auction block in Monterey. Estimated price sits somewhere in the market of $950K-$1.3M.
