This 1961 Ermine White Corvette once owned by Rock legend Alice Cooper was sold this weekend for $78,000 Australian Dollars ($65,481 USD) at the 2010 Shannons Melbourne Winter Classic Auction. The Corvette comes with a signed Fender Squier Guitar, hence the “three fender” nickname. Equipped with a 283 ci V8 and a three speed automatic powerglide, the Corvette has recently been overhauled with new shocks, brakes, tires and other parts. Because the Corvette is older than 15 years, it is not subject to RHD-conversion rules as long as the car is used for personal transportation. Rock on!
Shannons Catalog Description of the Alice Cooper’s 1961 Corvette:
This restored 1961 Corvette is a matching numbers car, with the original 283-cid V8 and Powerglide transmission. The Corvette was purchased by the current owner directly from rock legend Alice Cooper in Arizona, having been his personal car, and comes with a signed Fender Squier guitar. Like many rock stars, Alice Cooper is an avid car enthusiast (not to mention a keen golfer) with a fantastic collection of American muscle in his garage. The Corvette drives nicely, with new shock absorbers, rubbers etc. and is in fantastic condition throughout. Apart from the power operated soft-top, everything on the car works fine and with its star studded provenance will prove to be a great investment. To be sold unregistered, the vehicle will be supplied with a Roadworthy Certificate if sold in Victoria.
