I could be mistaken, but I don't believe it stands for anything other than GM's option code. These option-as-name Corvette models have gone way back to the early '70s with the LT-1. There were the L-88s, ZR-1s, etc. before and during the LT-1s reign, but I don't believe any of these had the option as a name displayed on the body like the LT-1 did.
I've seen some hoods with an L-88 decal but I'm not sure if this decoration was GM or owner applied.
The common "L" theme, beginning in '63, with the Corvette engine line-ups (L-36, L-89, L-48, L-82, L-88, etc, etc.) is merely the alphabetical place the engine option shows up in the listings of options. The special, race-only, ultra-low production engine options ended up at the end of the alphabet with "Z" prefixes: ZL-1, ZR-1, ZR-2.
