It's hard to imagine that a car with the racing pedigree of the Rebel
Corvette could be neglected to the point of it being lost. Winning the
GT class at the 1972 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't enough to keep this car
from becoming just another old wreck out behind the shed. It was many
years before Kevin Mackay came to rescue this prominent machine.
Finding, documenting, restoring, and selling rare and valuable Corvettes
is one of Mackay's specialties. His business, Corvette Repair Inc., is
considered the premier Corvette restoration facility in the country.
However, it just wasn't the Rebel L88 Corvette that he found and
Mackay tells story after story of finding and restoring valuable
Corvettes such as the 1960 Briggs Cunningham Le Mans racer that took 1st
in class. He also tells stories of Steve McQueen's 1966 Corvette, the
1967 Bounty Hunter racer, 1968 Sunray DX #2 and #3, and chassis #003
from 1953. If you like L88 Corvettes, no one has bought and restored
more of them than Kevin Mackay!
Few authorities in the hobby could be counted on to provide this much
entertainment in a single volume.
