1969 L88 Corvette

Most of these Corvettes were driven on the street, some were raced professionally. I will be posting more information about these 1969 L88 Corvettes as time permits. Please keep checking back for updates!
I am still accepting applications for my Corvette Legends Invitational Display at the 2018 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals MCACN. Please contact Bob Ashton to have your L88 Corvette available to all the major automotive media in November 2018!
