This week’s Muscle Car Of The Week could be considered the top-gun of all ’68 Corvettes, as it carries a 500+ HP 427 under the hood, an optioned named the “L88″. L88 cars featured not only a distinctive hood, but a whole list of performance enhancements… the F41 performance suspension, J56 heavy duty brakes, a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission, and of course, the 12.5:1 compression 427 V8.
