‘At the moment at Beverly Hills Car Club we have a car that is absolutely the archetype Prince was referencing, a Little (and not so little at that) Red Corvette. This is a beautiful 1961 first generation Chevrolet Corvette with 2 tops and matching numbers, in Roman Red with a red interior, one of 10,939 examples of GM’s flagship sports car built for the 1961 model year. The vehicle comes equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission, 283 V8 engine, steel wheels, knock-off hub caps, and white wall tires (You couldn’t imagine a Corvette of that vintage without whitewall tires, could you?). This is an excellent original American classic that is mechanically sound. Debuting in 1961 was a handsome new boat-tail that was carried through to the C2; and twin tail-lights appeared on the 1961 model, a development that continues to this day.
