1969 Corvette 427 L88 vs 1968 Dodge Super Bee HEMI
What a great match-up!!! First you have the legendary Hemi in a 1968 Dodge Super Bee breathing 425 horsepower from the legendary 426 ci HEMI. Then throw that against a 1969 Corvette… but not just any Corvette… a Corvette with a L88 427 making 430 horsepower. I don’t think I could ever thank both of these owners enough for actually bringing out these cars and racing them. What a rare match-up!
