Under moderate throttle application, only the center carburetor was employed, keeping fuel economy to a maximum. Unlike other tri-power systems relying on manifold vacuum to control the progressive opening of the outer two carbs, the L71 setup sensed the vacuum inside the center carburetor’s venturis to determine the need for increased intake charge. The result was excellent low-speed tractability coupled with incredibly smooth (albeit increasingly rapid) acceleration that astounded magazine road testers. Not one to cut corners, Arkus-Duntov was careful to ensure the drivetrain was capable of handling the tri-power engine’s voluminous output, specifying the heavy-duty close-ratio M21 or M22 4-speed manual transmission. An older and well-preserved restoration, this tri-power-equipped 1968 Corvette convertible complements its L71 engine with a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and stout 3.55 Positraction differential.
