Only five of these vehicles were built before General Motors pulled the plug on the racing program that created it. These cars weighed 1,350 lbs. lighter than a stock Corvette coupe and had a 377 cubic inch aluminum V-8 engine putting out 550 horsepower. They ran with a 4-speed transmission and 4-wheel independent suspension. Because this car is so extremely rare, it is valued between $6 million to $8 million!

1969 Chevrolet Corvette ZL-1

Now valued at $1.4 million, this vehicle had an aluminum engine churning out over 500 horsepower and was considered the most powerful version of the already strong L-88 Corvette. In fact, the ZL-1 was the most powerful production Corvette available until fairly recently.

1967 Chevrolet Corvette L-88

This vehicle, valued at $1 million, is considered by many car enthusiasts to be the best of the second generation Corvettes. Among these so-called “mid-year” Corvettes, the very best were the 20 L-88’s built that year with an engine officially rated at 430 horsepower. It’s real output was actually more than that.

1969 was the final year of production for the L-88 option package on the Corvette. 116 of these vehicles were built this year and they were intended for race track duty. Prices can vary a lot depending on the car’s racing history, but the average value is $478,000.

1953 Chevrolet Corvette

This vehicle was the first production Corvette. It had a 150-horsepower 6-cylinder engine and a two speed automatic transition. The car isn’t necessarily considered to be well-built, but only 300 were made and their value is about $300,000.
