Classic American Sports Car
****** UPDATE: This incredible Benchmark L89 SOLD in less than 12 hours! It is joining one of the finest collections of 427 Vettes in the country. Congrats, Brian! ******
This is without question one of the finest unrestored, untouched, single-digit mile high horsepower C3 Vettes on Earth.
Being one of just 334 L89 (factory tri-power, aluminum head, 427 CID 435 HP) coupes produced places it firmly among the Corvette elite alone, but what truly sets this example apart is its virtual time-capsule condition. Formerly of the Ed Foss collection, this 9,875 original mile car literally looks as if it just rolled out of the showroom in 1968.
As proof of its unbelievable condition, consider the awards this car has won, keeping in mind it is 100% original and untouched with ZERO restorative efforts ever performed:
-NCRS Top Flight Award
-NCRS 4 Star Award
-Bloomington Gold Survivor Award
-Bloomington Gold Concours Award
-Bloomington Gold BENCHMARK Survivor Award
-Triple Crown Award winner
Not only is it still wearing 100% of its original factory applied paint, virtually every component is also original to the car, including the exhaust. The engine has never been out of the car, the paint presents as new, the interior appears as if nobody ever sat in it. Even all five tires are original 1968 non-DOT tires, the four on the ground are NOS tires while the spare is the original which has never seen pavement. The car looks, runs, drives and operates simply as new in all respects. The original spark plug wires, removed for safekeeping, are stored in a Ziploc bag (pictured.) The undercarriage is in nearly new condition. Everywhere you look the car is impressive in every detail. If there was ever a reference level example of an L89 car, this is it.
Of course, a full binder of original documentation, show awards and ownership history are with the car.
Rarely, if ever, does the opportunity to purchase a Benchmark certified L89 Corvette present itself. This car would be quite at home being the centerpiece of any serious collection. Serious buyers please contact me for further details and copies of documentation if desired. Don't hesitate, I've never seen a finer unrestored Corvette and I guarantee after a thorough inspection you'll agree!
