Okay, okay, okay. Yesterday’s Corvette sport wagon wasn’t your favorite. Maybe it wouldn’t have received such a negative reaction if its history were better documented, as is the case with this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette, one of two L88 cars campaigned by James Garner’s American International Racing team at Daytona. From the seller’s description (which also includes a lengthy history of the car):
Having received a high quality restoration and race preparation, the car has excellent race cosmetics. The paintwork was done to high standards, and while there are a few blemishes, car presents very nicely overall and would be perfectly at home on the lawn or in the paddock. The chrome and trim are in great shape, as are the light sand glass. The graphics and paint color faithfully reproduce the car’s original AIR appearance, and the car sits on vintage style Goodyear race tires and torq thrust wheels.
The interior is Spartan and purposeful, with racing buckets, roll bar, and harness. The dashboard is in great shape and is fully instrumented with warning lights and period instruments. The engine compartment is detailed and purposeful, as is the underside.
The car is very complete with three accordion folders filled with various documentation relating to the car. Included among this are three log books, various documents describing the car’s history and provenance, period photos, information about both the current and original engines, and many magazines that feature the car. Included among this is the August of 1973 issue of Playboy, in which this car was featured. Additionally, the car has FIA papers, as well as period documents from the Daytona race.
