Corvette Description

This 1969 Corvette Convertible L88 Replica Racecar is the result of a 2-year build by All Pro Cars Inc. of Muncy, Pennsylvania for Kim Walker, a local Corvette legend and enthusiast. Kim funded a no expense spared build on this Corvette, utilizing only the best components and craftsmanship. Riding on a factory Corvette frame and built around a tubular skeleton on top, this Corvette can be stripped down to its bare cage in under 10 minutes. It's powered by a 468CI Big Block Chevy engine with aluminum cylinder heads, a 15:1 Compression ratio and an MSD Ignition System custom built by Danny Yastashak of Midway Performance of Mt. Carmel, Pennsylvania. Boasting 850+ horsepower, there is no mistaking the “King Of The Hill” has arrived when this car hits the pits. The massive engine breathes through a custom built carburetor and handmade cold air induction system created by the craftsmen of Al Pro Inc. A custom built fuel system and racing fuel cell handle getting the big block fed, and the engine features an Accusump pre oiling system to keep it well-oiled before every start, as well as a set of large diameter headers route the exhaust out of the engine bay and through the Hooker-style side pipes. The motor is backed by a stiff Jerico 4-speed transmission with a hydraulically- assist clutch throw out bearing. A factory-style rear differential handles the duty of putting the power to the ground. Suspension consists of factory Corvette control arms, completely rebuilt with racing style bushings a set of Koni shock absorbers. Ground contact is maintained by a set of Hoosier tires on American Racing wheels, and braking is handled by Wilwood calipers and pads, kept cool via custom-fabricated brake cooling ducts. The body itself is finished beautifully with extra wide L88-style flares and a long style L88 hood painted in beautiful Cortez Silver with a sinister Tuxedo Black ZL1-style stripe that runs from the hood over the decklid to the rear panel and down rear of the car just as the factory-style ZL1 stripe did in 1969. The interior of this race car is as unique as the exterior, featuring a custom-built sheet metal dash with period correct Stewart Warner and Comp II gauges. The cockpit additionally features a Long shifter assembly, Kirky Sheetmetal seat, G-Force 5-point harness, quick-release steering wheel, and a complete fire suppression system. This car was originally raced by its owner, Mr. Walker, in both SVRA and SCCA races, all of which are documented in a binder with their respective log books. He raced the car from 2014 until the 2018 season, when he retired, (though not before winning an HRG5 championship with the car. ) The car was then purchased by its new owner, with hopes of one day taking it out on the race course himself. Unfortunately, he never did. This car is titled as a 1969 Corvette, with a clean Pennsylvania title. It has been started and brought to operating temperature regularly, and runs and sounds great. This Corvette could be easily recertified and raced today by simply replacing those safety items in the car that have now expired or lapsed. Included in the sale is a second set of restored wheels and brand new tires, a freshly rebuilt rear end, and miscellaneous small parts. PLEASE NOTE: SALE PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE APPLICABLE SALES TAX, LICENSE, REGISTRATION FEES AND $499 SERVICE AND RECONDITION FEE.
