In the world of collectible Corvettes, it’s all about the options. Corvettes are not rare cars for the most part, so the really special ones require a closer look. A top example has to have the right combination of engine, performance equipment, color, and convenience features. On some Corvettes, options can put two visually identical cars in entirely different price brackets, to the extent that a properly equipped example could feasibly be worth twice a base car. When it comes to production Corvettes, the 1967 L88 tops most people’s “must have” list; it has the perfect mix of rarity, performance, motorsports pedigree, high cost when new, and a certain mystique.
