Dana Chevrolet/Botany 500 LeMans L88.
One of the most famous 1967 L88 Corvettes in the world:
Dana Chevrolet/Botany 500 LeMans L88.

This 1967 L88 was special ordered by Dana Chevrolet through Zora Duntov for the most prestigous race in the world: the LeMans 24hours. The drivers were racing legends Dick Guldstrand, Bob Bondurant & Don Yenko. Equipped with a Traco Engineering 427, the car ran practice laps of over 180MPH and easily set a new GT class top speed record during the race. An impressive lead in GT class eventually ended when a wrist pin failed.

The owner asked RacingIcons to re-finish the exterior & bring the car up to more authentic 1967 LeMans specifications.

This was the eighth LeMans racecar we've had the privilege to work on.
