Car history:
2) Can a car be beautiful and nasty and the same time? Of course it can! And this one definitely qualifies!
Start out with a highly documented (Tank Sticker, Window Sticker, Shipper, Dealer PDI Sheet) and rare (1 of 624) #'s matching 68 L89 Convertible in stunning Corvette Bronze. Throw in owner history with copies of past titles, restoration receipts. Then proceed to do a complete and correct frame off restoration. And what you end up with is one of the highest performance Corvettes ever built! These L89's were beasts! Most were ordered from St. Louis as bare boned go-fast conveyances. But, every once in a while, a buyer would check some additional RPO boxes beyond the norm. And that is the case with our featured car. The performance pieces are there, to be sure! L89 Aluminum Head 427, M-21 Close Ratio 4-spd, 4.11 Posi rear end. However, the unusual options are here too. Such as, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Tinted Glass, AM/FM Stereo, Telescoping Steering Wheel, Head Restraints and more. Just enough to make the beast a bit tamer and user friendly than the rest. 167 miles from the odometer. Color codes from the trim plate. Built date is D17. Numbers on tank sheet's copy not matching the VIN. March 21, 2015.
1) DATE OF PRODUCTION: 10/24/67. DELIVERED TO BOB JONES CHEVROLET ON 11/25/67. Only 640 people checked the box marked L89 in 1968 and only 220 checked Convertible L89. THE CAJUN QUEEN. This Rare Corvette Bronze Convertible L89 lived most of her life in Louisiana with Black Leather Trim, Aluminum Heads, Full Trans Ignition. Posi 411R, 4-Speed, Close Ratio Trans, Standard Black Top and Auxiliary Hard Top AM/FM radio, Tinted Glass, Head Rest Restraints. 435 Horse Power, 427 cu in Engine, Telescopic Steering Wheel, Power Steering, Speed Warning.
