1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible "The Bounty Hunter"

Finding a genuine original Corvette L88 is always a Big Deal; production was 20 in 1967, 80 in 1968, and 116 in 1969, for a total of 216. And by most authoritative estimates, fewer than half of those still in existence have been located and confirmed. Those facts alone make it worth the 20 years it has taken to find and restore the “Bounty Hunter”, a 1968 L88 convertible owned and raced by Ronnie Reid Joyner on the roads and highways of the Southeast corridor from the day he flew it off the rail car that delivered it from the factory until he retired it in 1980. Along the way Joyner and the Bounty Hunter took on all comers, racing for money and bounty and always coming out on top. The Bounty Hunter L88 Corvette will be presented for sale at the Mecum Kissimmee Auction, Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 4:20 PM. Read all about it!
