10. Chevrolet Corvette L-88
If you are looking to spend some serious money on a rare, extremely sought-after muscle car, this could be the perfect model for you. The second-generation Chevrolet Corvette C2, which they produced from 1963 to 1967 was one of the most beautiful, aggressive-looking cars from the muscle car era. It caused a sensation when they first introduced it. And it was still modern looking when they replaced it with the third generation Corvette in 1968.
The Corvette C2 presented many important things to the Corvette lineup, such as big block power, independent rear suspension, and disc brakes. It was also a popular, successful racing car in the hands of many private teams. Corvette aficionados claim the last year for the C2 was also the best since they restyled it. It featured an interesting hood scoop and new engine choices. Although the big block 427 Corvette came out in 1966, they refined it further with four levels of power for the 1967 model year.
The list started with a 390 HP 427 V8 and ended with an extremely rare, valuable and powerful L-88 427 V8. Corvettes equipped with this engine were in a class by themselves since the aluminum head L-88 produced close to 600 HP. It also came with a mandatory heavy-duty suspension, brakes, and handling package. They developed this option for racers, but it was expensive, almost doubling the price of the base 67 Corvette. In 2014, one surviving 1967 Corvette L-88 sold for $3,85 million.
