1) Monterey 2015, Lot S87
The unusual beginnings of this highly decorated 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 coupe are detailed in a letter from Tony Franchi, who enjoyed a long career at Wigder Chevrolet in Livingston, New Jersey, the cars selling dealer. Written in 1995 to the cars then-owner Bob Rush of Clewiston, Florida, the letter describes how the original purchaser left the car stored at the dealership for the longest time. When the customer finally arrived to collect his new car, he showed up with a flatbed trailer and winched the L88 onto the trailer deck without it even having been put through a pre-delivery inspection. When asked by a dealer employee what he would do with the car, the customers reply was straightforward: Put it away. Indeed, he must have done exactly that at least for a while, because it never appeared at Wigder again.
Flash forward to today, as the car shows just over 2,000 original miles. One of just
116 L88s produced in 1969, the final year of production, it presents in rare Tuxedo
Black with a Black interior, Rally wheels and Firestone Blackwall tires. It still carries
its factory-original drivetrain, comprising the storied L88 427/430 HP engine with
late-production open chamber aluminum heads, a Muncie M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed and 4.56:1 Positraction rear end. In addition to the L88-specific F41 special suspension, K66 transistorized ignition and J50-J56 special power disc brakes, the car features bright front fender louver trim and Soft Ray-tinted glass.
Serial# 728007 documentation
The car was awarded both Bloomington Gold and NCRS Regional Top Flight honors
in 2004, a result of the careful restoration by the Naber Brothers of Houston, Texas, that encompassed NOS parts including five Firestone tires. It was then invited to the 2008 Bloomington Gold L88 Invasion Special Collection, further adding to its accolades. Documented with the tank sticker and the aforementioned letter from Wigder Chevrolet, this top-tier collector Corvette L88 comes complete with judging sheets and certificates, restoration receipts and owner's manual. Furthermore, the engine has been affirmed by Al Grennings Classic Car Affirmation Services in November 2014, and today this car is the lowest-mileage original-drivetrain L88 Corvette known to exist.
