Everywhere you look on this classic Chevrolet, you’ll see the telltale evidence of expert workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Let’s start at the engine, where a new Corvette LS3 V-8 engine and GM 4L60-E four-speed automatic transmission comprise the new drivetrain.

Imagine your emotions when you experience the sophistication of rack-and-pinion power steering, the safety of four-wheel power disc brakes, the magnificent ride quality of a Corvette Corrections chassis and suspension, and the accuracy of the retro-styled instrument panel cluster. You’ll even have cleverly installed power windows at your command should you decide to block out the wind and an electric hood. (Not even a 2020 mid-engine Corvette has that!)

How well do you know your 1961 Corvette history?

Model-year 1961 was a glamorous one for the Corvette. The TV show, “Route 66” debuted, featuring a brand-new 1961 Corvette. A total of 10,261 Corvettes, all of them convertibles, rolled off the St. Louis, Missouri, assembly line.

On the front end of the 1961 Corvette, a dual headlamp system, chrome grille and new crossed-flagged emblem with C-O-R-V-E-T-T-E spelled out gave the ride a freshened look for the swinging ’60s. The model year also saw the introduction of a brand-new rear-end design, which would carry over into the second-generation, or mid-year, Corvettes.

Looking back at the 1961 Corvette, there’s no denying its image is timeless. In fact, the first-generation Corvette is the classic car of choice for famous celebrities like George Clooney and Bruce Springsteen.
