1969 Corvette Coupe with L89 427/435 horsepower engine

Not the most powerful, but the best deal on a big block


In the late 1960s, an L89 Corvette came equipped with a 427 cubic inch, 435 horsepower engine. The 560-horsepower L88 is legendary, but very few were made, almost all were taken directly into racing, and they were twice the price of a basic Corvette. The 427/435 L89 package was a much better deal, and got you a car that was drivable on the street. As you can see, it was still a very sexy package.
