Print Friendly and PDF

Below is the a summary of the performance test results of the the L88 Corvettes as published in mainstream automotive publications over the years. Unfortunately, there hasn't been many. It should be noted that the performance test results from the Road and Track, Feb. 1986 issue were taken from the July, 1969 Car Life magazine. Road and Track tested a privately owned 1969 L88 but chose to report the test results from the Car Life magazine.
