1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible

Even among the hallowed ranks of its peers, this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 is a special automotive treasure. Its first owner was renowned L88 racer Tony DeLorenzo, who enjoyed success in SCCA racing in a 1967 L88 and later shared 22 consecutive wins in a pair of Owens-Corning Fiberglas-sponsored C3 L88s with his racing partner Jerry Thompson. In the midst of becoming one half of the most successful Corvette racing team in history, Tony DeLorenzo special-ordered this triple Black L88 convertible from his racing sponsor, Hanley Dawson Chevrolet, to use as a daily driver.

  1. Reminds me of when we met Hap Sharp at Sebring in '64. We were watching the team practice tire changes on the '63 Corvette the night before the race from the fence around the garage. He came out and talked to us for a long time. If I had been by myself it probably wouldn't have happened but I had my beautiful redhead new wife with me. :-)
