Again, for 1961, the Bel Air has all it takes to make it
America's most popular model! Chevy's slim new size
makes it easier than ever to drive, park and garage. Its
clean lines promise lasting beauty and value. And such
comforts as glove box light, automatic dome light, foam
cushioned seats front and rear....

For 1961, the Bel Air received a new body. Its wheelbase remained 119 in (3,000
mm), but its length was now reduced slightly to 209.3 in (5,320 mm). All engines
options of the previous year remained in effect with the standard engines being the
235.5 CID Six of 135 hp (101 kW) or the 283 CID V8 of 170 hp (130 kW). The V8 cost
$110 more than the Six and weighed 5 lb (2.3 kg) less.

The Bel Air 2-door sedan used squared-off roof styling and large wrap-around rear
window as opposed to the hardtop's swept-back design. The Bel Air 4-door Sport
Hardtop still used a different roof line than did the 4-door sedan.
