Default Steve Bramati (SBR) 1969 L88 Coupe

Moved from Members Rides. Orig Post 1/27/09


Hello,
After seeing all the cars at the Scottsdale auctions it has given me spring fever. I went into my garage and took some pictures of my 1969 L88 Corvette coupe that I have owned for 5 years.


This monza red 69 L88 coupe was sold new at Courtesy Chevrolet in San Diego Ca. A navy Rear Admiral special ordered it and kept until 1972 when it was traded in for a Blazer. I remember reading about this car as it was in a dozen magazines and a few books when a collector discovered the car in 1984 as he purchased it from the second owner. The car only had 21K original miles on it.


Fast forward to 2003, I owned a nice silver 69 L88 coupe but had always wanted the red coupe that I had read and heard about so many times over the years. I had mentioned this to Chris P. and told me right away who owned it and told me that it may be for sale. I knew that I had to do buy the red car and sell the silver one no matter what. Upon receipt of the car I was amazed at how original the car really was. Other than paint, battery, belts, and a hose or the two the car is original and the motor has never been apart. The car also comes with complete owner history, its tank sticker, POP and has been featured in 12 magazines and three books. The car also came with 3 photo albums and journals with entries made about the car dating back to 1972. The car has earned 4 NCRS Top Flight awards a PV award, 3 Bloomington Gold certificates, a survivor award and has been inducted to their Hall of Fame in 2008. It has been a privelige owning this car and I hope you enjoyed reading about it. Special thanks Chris P. for all his advice on the hobby and Lou G. for helping me keep the car running its best.


Best Regards,
Steve Bramati
