Corvette Mike’s Thundering Thursday
Volume 8-20 • January 21, 2021
Mecum just held its large Kissimmee auction, and the top seller was a triple Black L88, selling for $2,500,000! This is great news for Corvette community and collectors worldwide.
The 1967 L88 Corvette is the best of the best in terms of performance when it comes to the second generation. They featured a high-performance 427-cid big block engine mated to a heavy duty M22 ‘Rock Crusher’ 4-speed manual transmission and nearly every race ready option GM had to offer. Its ultra-high-performance engine pumped out over 500-horsepower, and the transmission was nearly unbreakable. Suspension components were as heavy-duty as was ever put in a GM car and there was no need for a heater. Visually, the cars were not much different from every other 1967 Corvette, with the exception of the iconic L88 hood. However, unlike any Corvette that came before, these cars did not have any standard comfort or convenience features. They were produced for one thing only-speed.
While the L88 that just sold was one of the rare 1967 L88’s produced, it still was not as original as the super rare L88’s that still have their original motors under the hood, with only three still in existence.
The yellow one pictured here was owned for over 30 years by a famous Corvette collector by the name of Steve from Minnesota. He was a dealer and a collector and kept the original title untouched from 1967. The documentation and the history of this car is an amazing story. What really makes this particular L88 super rare, is that it’s the only coupe that retains its original motor, original chassis, and original tags. These cars were built to race and run hard.
I am offering this amazing 1967 fully documented, Duntov certified, and Triple Diamond award winning, Corvette for sale. It has no equal. There will only be one new owner who can claim and boast the ownership of this amazing 67 Corvette L88 (still titled to the original owner).

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:
“This extremely pleasing and sophisticated color combination of Artic White with Black&Red interior goes together so well they are like the original 1953 Corvette, but far more modern. Stop by and have a close look at this Chevrolet marvel of engineering. No other car on the market comes close to delivering a knockout punch like the C8 Corvette. Car and Driver so named it for a reason. And let’s stop saying, for the price, for a moment and recognize that maybe all the other so-called exotics are grossly overpriced. I’ll bet their makers are scratching their heads wondering how sales will be moving forward.”

There are so many items in the Corvette-themed collection that he changed the way Guinness World Records classifies car collecting. Anyone can go on a giant shopping spree and buy a bunch of cars, Mallon said. Eventually Guinness created a new category for “Corvette items,” and in 2012, Charles was awarded the world record.
