1961 Corvette

  • The Headlight bezels are now painted body color
  • New rear design features Four taillights
  • 1961 saw the first use of the now famous Corvette trademark quad taillights and was the last year to feature wide whitewall tires. The exterior styling was mildly face lifted with Bill Mitchell's duck-tail rear end and a simplified mesh grille without the previous versions' "teeth."
