When You think of iconic Corvettes you think of the 1967 L-88 and L-89, the 63' Z06 and the 57'-62' RPO 684 and 687 heavy duty brake and suspension factory race cars. With a total of less than 950 of these cars produced over six years they are ultra rare and extremely desireable. They created the legend that is Corvette, running on tracks from LeMans and Sebring to Riverside and Elkhart Lake. They defined the essence of Corvette and placed it securely in the halls of automotive legends. If you are considering investing in an early Corvette this is a rare opportunity to own a truly outstanding car.
