69 BFG Stars and Stripes L88/ZL1 Greenwood Race Car...

will be a centerpiece in ProTeam's L88 collection which now numbers seven special production L88's of the total of 216 produced in 1967 (20), 1968 (80), and 1969 (116). This car is arguably the most significant and storied of all the L88's  that came from the General in those three years. Its litany of achievements is a who's who of racing accomplishments and show awards. The BFG L88/ZL1 participated at 24 Hours of Lemans setting a GT speed record of 215 mph on the Mulsanne straight during qualifying and ran the Daytona 24 Hour and 12 Hours of Sebring. Show awards include Best in Class at the Quail Motorsport '08 event, center display for the Corvette Racing Legends event at the Petersen Museum in '08, the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, part of the Bloomington Gold Special Collection Grand Finale in '09, NCRS American Heritage Award in '09, center display at the National Corvette Museum for the Corvette Hall of Fame in '09, and most recently invited to celebrate Corvette's first Lemans win at the Laguna ALMS race in '10. The BFG L88/ZL1 drove off the block at the RM auction for a cool $638,000.00 in August and is now home in ProTeam's Napoleon, Ohio facility. This Corvette is easily a star among stars and must be heard to be believed.
