22. 1967-1969 L88
The competition ban was a thorn in the side of the Corvette developers, so much so that the cars were limited on horsepower. Nevertheless, the 1967-1969 L88 was introduced to try and give shoppers a competitive vehicle they could take to the track. The L88 was advertised as only having 435HP, which at the time was still a monstrous amount. In reality, the big block motor was pushing about 550HP, a substantial amount even by today’s standards.
Only 216 L88 models were produced during this time frame. The car was one of the most race-ready Corvette models to date. It’s a wonder why GM didn’t produce more of them, as the L88 was a popular option that made the Corvette a lot more fun to drive.
