As a collector car, this 1969 Dodge Hemi Daytona will present a very special opportunity for a new owner to add their name to the Charger Daytona’s notoriety.

The only COPO L88 known to exist.
The Corvette’s racing career spanned several seasons in IMSA, SCCA and SVRA competition, including entries at the world-famous Daytona and Sebring race tracks.

Presented in factory-specified Daytona Yellow with period Thompkins Tile Co. racing livery and black upholstery, the Corvette’s honors and accolades are numerous, including Showcase display at the 2007 Chevy Vettefest, display at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green in 2007, induction into the 2009 Bloomington Gold Special Collection and display at the 2009 Carlisle Race Car & Driver’s Reunion. A binder is included with the sale of the Corvette, containing racing history and vintage photos.
1 of 2 1971 Judge Convertibles finished in Tropical Lime.
This 1971 Pontiac GTO Judge Convertible is one of just two produced in Tropical Lime paint and is also one of just 17 Judge convertibles built that year. It was the subject of a rotisserie restoration, and it has only been driven test miles since its completion. The GTO is powered by the top-of-the-line 455/335 HP HO 4-barrel V-8 engine, with functional Ram Air feeding into a dual-snorkel air cleaner and exhaling through a dual exhaust system. The HO engine is mated to a Turbo 400 Hydra-Matic transmission. This Judge convertible features variable-ratio power steering and power front disc brakes, along with a power convertible top, and the black bucket-seat interior features the Rally Gauge Cluster with clock, a Delco pushbutton radio, a Custom Sport steering wheel, a console and a floor shifter. The Y96 Ride and Handling Package included here features a rear sway bar, with Soft Ray-tinted windshield, body-colored outside mirrors and 14-inch Honeycomb wheels mounting Goodyear Polyglas G70-14 tires rounding out this 1971 GTO Judge.
