1961 Corvette
From the 1961 Corvette brochure:

AMERICA'S SPORTS CAR GETS A NEW LOOK!

Take a classic sports car. Give it tasteful new styling. That's Corvette in 1961. Starting with the sleek rear deck, it's clean, uncluttered. From this point forward, it becomes obvious this new Corvette was designed to be driven. No matter what the occasion - black tie or tennis shoes - Corvette is appropriate. If you're an enthusiastic rallyist, an about-towner, a countryside explorer or all three, Corvette matches your mood.

Corvette styling was substantially upgraded in 1961. Although enthusiasts at the time did not know it, they were being given a sneak peak of things to come. The rear would carry over to 1963, which would be a pivotal year in Corvette history. The "ducktail" design (below) of the 1961 (and '62) would be known as "transitional" years. The exhaust now exited below the body and not via an opening in the bumper as in previous years. The four round tail lights was the start of a Corvette tradition that would continue for more than 50 years.
