Thanks to the Shelby 427 Cobra and its continued dominance on the racetrack, Chevrolet engineers were forced to counter with a 427 of their own by enlarging the Corvette's 396-cid V-8. The big block motor was noted by the appropriate buldge in the hood. Performance was astounding: 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, 0-100 in 11.2 seconds, 12.8 second ¼-mile and a 152-mph top speed. Ads in the buff publications proudly announced, With 427 cubic inches, who needs adjectives. Chevrolet produced a then-record 27,720 Corvettes, including 17,762 convertibles with a base price of $4,084.00 before options. The Turbo-Jet 427 added a $312.85 to the bottom line. The extra cost for the L72 was justified as it included four bolt mains, impact extruded aluminum pistons, a very aggressive camshaft, and a Holly 780 CFM carburetor mated to a aluminum intake and a free-flowing exhaust. The K66 transistorized ignition was a mandatory option with the L72, too. 5,528 buyers opted for the extra performance of the L72 motor. A former Bloomington Gold and NCRS Top Flight award winner in 1992-1993, this Silver Pearl Metallic Vette sports the vaunted 425hp/427cid engine with 4-speed manual transmission most desired by collectors. It features power steering, power brakes, AM-FM radio, 15-inch aluminum wheels with knock offs on period-correct gold stripe Goodyear bias ply tires, side pipes, wood rim steering wheel, optional hard top, along with correct hoses and clamps and proper satin chassis finish.
