1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible Monza Red w/Black interior,
427/430hp, automatic transmission.
When Corvette aficionados get together to talk shop, the subject of classic
Corvettes will inevitably come up. When it does, it's a fair bet that the
ultimate Corvette will be a topic of discussion. We're talking about the
legendary L-88! This monster was produced for only three years in very
limited quantities ('67-20, '68-80, 69-116) and were strictly race cars
that you could drive (barely) on the street. The hp rating was a joke and
posted 5hp under the L-71 427/435hp engine to discourage the average buyer
who had no idea what this beast really was. The actual hp was closer to
The cars success on the track, both in the 1/4 mile and road course speaks
for itself and just mentioning the name L88 still strikes fear in its
All L88's are special, but this one is a stand out! It's one of the rarest

this one's also a convertible, you end up with an even rarer package!

132314 / 1968 Chevrolet Baldwin Motion Corvette
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7m5b8kl
The Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvettes, of which approximately 10 were
built between mid-1969 and 1971, remains some of the rarest and valuable of
the Baldwin-Motion-badged cars.
In 1968, an enthusiast named Joe Robinson had seen what Baldwin-Motion was
doing with other Chevrolets, and called Joel Rosen for more information. He
looked into buying a Motion Corvette, but ultimately all Joe could afford
was a stock 427 Corvette, which probably wasn't much of a hardship.
But by 1973, Joe was getting anxious for some more performance from the
427, and once again contacted Joel Rosen. He purchased a basic Phase III GT
Kit consisting of a front end with tunneled headlamps, shark louvers, and
flared fenders. The package also included a scooped hood, rear fender
flares, and a polished alloy LeMans fuel filler. Robinson added chromed
outside header-Exhausts, Motion finned
aluminum valve covers, a Holley four-barrel carburetor, a high-rise
manifold, and polished Ansen wheels. To keep costs down, he did not order
Rosen's signature GT rear window conversion. A local body shop handled the
transformation, and before long, Joe was driving the Motion Corvette that
he'd always wanted.
Joe used his mail order Motion Corvette for several years, but in 1976 with
32,000 miles on its odometer, he sold it. The next owner added just 4,000
miles, and in 1978, parked it for good. It sat unloved for 25 years until
it was discovered looking like a refugee from a junkyard. The original
powertrain had apparently been replaced, but in a brilliant stroke of luck,
the original 427, complete with Motion upgrades, was sitting in the
driveway next to it.
Today, the car presents in stunning restored condition, with all the Motion
Performance components intact. Bodywork is stunning, and this car can
obviously forget all the caveats about correct Corvettes being imperfect.
We have restoration photos showing the entire transformation, and you can
see that the car has been rebuilt from the ground up, with some sections
requiring substantial reconstructive surgery. The unique Motion Performance
paint scheme is actually trademarked by Joel Rosen and as a result, there
are no stencils or decal kits available—the only way to get them is
through Joel Rosen, and he's only selling them to genuine Motion
Performance vehicle owners. That means that the two-tone red and white
paint scheme on this car is 100% accurate.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching 427, still sporting all the
Motion Performance upgrades it received in 1973. The air cleaner breathes
deeply through that vented hood, the unique Motion valve covers have been
beautifully restored, and even things like the unobtainable "Phase III"
ignition system are still present. The engine itself has been treated to a
concours-level build and detail, and all the Chevrolet-sourced components
are original, NOS, or exact reproductions. And yes, that is indeed Joel
Rosen's signature on the ignition cover. If you know Joel, you know he's
extremely protective of the Motion legacy—his signature would absolutely
not appear on a fake or a clone.
This car also still carries its original matching-numbers 4-speed manual
transmission and original rear end, which were recovered with the rest of
the car in 2003 and properly restored. The major components have been
rebuilt, including the suspension and brakes. The original polished Ansen
wheels remain on the car, now wearing 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear
BFGoodrich T/A radials.
The interior is pure 1968 Corvette, and that's a good thing. As an all-new
design in 1968, GM designers went all-out to create a beautiful passenger
compartment that was befitting their top-of-the-line sports car. Everything
is new, from the seat covers, to the carpets, to the door panels, and shows
very little use since the restoration was completed. The original gauges,
including speedometer with speed alert, have been restored, and the
original radio works as it should.
This car rightfully belongs among the ranks of the special Motion vehicles,
and has the pedigree to back it up. Frighteningly fast and beautifully
restored, this car can anchor any significant collection, and no history of
the Corvette is complete without it. Call today!
1969 Corvette 427 test drive
1969 Corvette 427 test drive and inspection. For me, this is pretty much
the perfect Corvette. It's Black, it's got a 427, of course it has a 4
speed, and it's my favorite body style. Not to mention this car has
documented original low miles and it's nearly all correct.

I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1967 Chevrolet
Corvette, powered by the 435 horsepower 427 Big-block
Tri-Power V8 with high-compression and a solid lifter cam. All that power
is funneled through a Muncie Four-speed manual trans back to a posi rear.
This thing sounds mean and has the performance to back it up. The sound
coming out of those side pipes is unbelievable. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
