Sport Coupe
This car is known as the N.A.R.T. Le Mans Corvette L88 Racer. This car was originally built by Or Costanzo and Toy English. Mid America Motorworks history making 1968 L88 Corvette transformed in just eight weeks from a wrecked street car to the highest placing Corvette at the 24 Hours of LeMans in 1972.

It took 23 years for Corvette to return and run this strong at LeMans in 1972. Interesting history developed at Le Mans. In order to compete it needed to use a majority of factory parts. Goodyear Tire approached Luigi Chinetti wanting an 'American' presence at Le Mans. They offered assistance with sponsorship that was accepted but Chinetti demanded the car be painted in the 'N.A.R.T.' racing livery.

As the race neared, original sponsorship was retracted by Trans World Airlines (TWA) and British Petroleum (BP) stepped in, placing their stickers right over the TWA stickers. Painted Ferrari Red due to its entry affiliation with North American Racing Team (NART), the #4 Corvette crashed during practice and ran the race with wood supports, screws and racer tape holding the nose together. Placing 15th overall and 7th in the GTS class, this was only the beginning of a true American grass roots legend. In 1973 this iconic Corvette finished third at the 24 Hours of Daytona and later earned pole position for the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The car is powered by a 427 cu. in V-8 engine developing 560 horsepower coupled to a 4-speed transmission.
