Alice Cooper's Three Fender '61 Corvette Sells for $78,000 AUD

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.

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1966 Corvette 427/425hp NOM
