RM Auctions: 1968 Chevrolet Corvette to be auctionedJuly 20, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
The most successful racing Chevy-Corvette ever-the 1968 Chevrolet L-88 Corvette that was the Owens/Corning FIA/SCCA to be auctioned at the annual RM Auctions event in Monterey.
This legendary motor wheel among Vettes has won multiple SCCA championships at the hands of Tony DeLorenzo, the son of an ex-GM exec. Among the titles won, noteworthy examples include the 1969 and 1970 GT Class wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona.
The task of restoring this legend to its original spec was taken up by Kevin Mackay and is in 1971 24 Hours of Daytona livery and can still go down the track. This monster racing vehicle is motivated by its 685 horsepower 7.0-liter Chevy big block V8, which comes mated to a Muncie M-22 “Rockcrusher” transmission.
