Car history:
Perhaps the most balanced engine for the 1969 model year was the L89 big-block,
rated at 435 horsepower. Chevrolet started out with a four-bolt main, cast iron
block, then engineers crafted a pair of high flow, lightweight, aluminum heads to
top it off. Resting between the heads was an aluminum tri-power intake manifold
with three Holley Model 2300 carburetors. While the L89 was rated at the same
435 horsepower as the iron-head L71, the L89 was known to produce slightly more
power thanks to its larger exhaust valves (1.84 inches versus 1.72 inches). It also
weighed about 75 pounds less, thus reducing unnecessary weight from the front
end and helping handling characteristics. The option didn't come cheap though, it
required an additional $832.05. A cast iron transistorized distributor was standard
for all L71 and L89 engines.

Because of a UAW strike in early 1969 and a large number of unfilled orders, the
newly appointed head of Chevrolet, John DeLorean, decided to extend the model
year to 16 months. The extended model year helped Corvette set a new sales
record of 38,762 vehicles. And of those, only 390 rolled off the St. Louis factory
floor with the L89 option. But those that did represent some of the fastest and
most balanced C3's ever made.

Born in St. Louis, MO, this Lemans Blue over Saddle Vinyl 1969 Corvette was
delivered for sale, it came equipped with the following accessories: L71 427, Aux.
Hardtop, F41 suspension, 4.11 Posi rear, HD clutch, Power steering, AM/FM radio,
front louver trim and the L89 Aluminum head option. Coming in at a sticker price
of $6312.55, the Corvette was not a cheap car for 1969. The Corvette comes
documented with the protect-o-plate and original manuals The motor has the
correct LP engine code for a 427/435 HP car with 11.0:1 compression and 3x2 BC.
All of the numbers are correct and matching. The transmission is a M-21 (B suffix) Muncie (read close ratio 2.20:1) and the rear end is a 4.11 posi unit.
