Chevrolet was just getting the thing right!

Performance and styling were gathering pace.  This was a milestone for Corvette.   New Ducktail back end!    — this 4 tail light design would hold the interest of the American Sports car lovers Starting  NOW!   “Corvettes still have 4 tail lights”    With 10,939 units built thru the St. Louis, Missouri plant,  GM felt the  “American Sports Car” was finally going to be a winner for  GM!     This:

Fawn Beige/fawn interior (white cove)  was 1 of 1,363 built—and   358 w/cove paint

283/270 hp   2×4’s  with solid lifters    519 block  283

4 speed T10 transmission

wide White wall tires/full caps

AM Signal seeking Radio  “Wonderbar”

Both hard and soft tops

Two tone paint

highly detailed engine bay,  dual carb air cleaner/fresh air tube/ss shielding/generator/clamps and decal set—-  back the factory look!

Order a 1961   Corvette and wait for your Color and engine options to be built.  This was your last year for the highly reliable 283 engine in a Corvette– and the last Solid Axle with Multi-carbs.  The beloved  “Painted Coves” would be no more after 1961. and soon the extra space of a Trunk would disappear as well.  Those Wide White Wall Tires—about to be shelved.   Ahhh  those over sized steering wheels were about to become a thing of the past.   Simple to work on and easy to understand,  but still a Sports Car with all the Flair red blooded American males would crave.    But Hold on to your hats!!!   something new was on the Drawing board:      The STINGRAY!!!
