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!!!
