My associate, Randall Brock, purchased a slightly used 1967 Corvette 427 L88 in 1969 for $6,000!
I drove his 1967 Corvette 427 L88 a few times and it was the fasted street driven vehicle I have ever drove or even rode in. The Corvette could turn 11.00 sec. ETs consistently with some good bite. R. Brock also owned a 1969 Dodge Charger with 426 Street Hemi with an automatic transmission and his L88 Corvette could blow the Charger's doors off.

The unconfirmed rumor was that Brock's 1967 L88 Corvette was ordered by the TV host Dick Clark but when it arrived without a radio, Clark refused to accept it.

In 1971, Randall Brock traded his '67 L88 Corvette roadster for a 1967 Pontiac Firebird 400 convertible which I acquired a year later . The '67 Firebird had 3500 miles on the odometer. The new owner of the '67 L88 Corvette lived in San Antonio TX and he turned it into a race car and it was never licensed again. It has disappeared from history.
