Description

Crazy like a Fox? Like a Stingray!

This car truly represents the rare breed of Corvette enthusiast who is extremely talented and unique patience for precision. We sometimes call them "the crazy ones," but indeed, they show us that any build is possible. Now, we can also add “Like a Stingray."

This L88 restoration project is more than 70 pages thick. The most important aspect of the build is how the owner and builder took painstaking effort to re-create the 1968 Corvette Convertible L88. Rather than make you read the book here online, we are listing the details below.

- 1968 Corvette L88 Convertible
- 427/430hp period correct NOM L88 engine (documented)
- Dyno'd at 533hp @5000rpm and 550hp @5900rpm
- Muncie M22 Rock Crusher 4 Speed transmission
- Rear axle 4.11 Positraction
- Frame off, body completely off restoration. We welcome all inspections.
- The engine is correct casting number 3935439
- The matching numbers stamp on the pad is correct for the re-creation
- Correct are the aluminum heads, intake manifold, heads, alternator, ignition system, radiator, water pump, expansion tank, HD shocks and springs, exhaust manifolds and air cleaner assembly.
- The amount of L88 parts on this car represents that this build took years and the receipts for L88 parts show they didn't all come at once. These parts are rare.
- Body plate D16 (Nov 16, 1967) and is correct for Rally Red with Red interior. The interior is leather.
- There has been more than $200,000 put into this project. It's been build by a local customer and friend of Corvette Mike Midwest.
- Same owner for 21 years - since November 2000.

The build book is full. Receipts, photos, stories, notes, historical sales, old titles, tax forms and more. All of the important parts including engine and internals are represented with receipts. That's how it should be done!

Only 80 L88 Corvettes were built in 1968. The current value of a documented L88 in excellent condition ranges from $393,000 to $501,000. At the fair price we are selling, we know it was built crazy like a Stingray!
