My question is what Chevrolet (year and model) was the first to come from the factory with narrow (1") white walls.

Here's another hint: This car was not available with a V8.

Joe G Close, but no cigar. It was earlier than '61...and it wasn't a Corvette.

Hint: The car in the picture is not the answer to the question.

Nope. The first year they were available was prior to 1962...and they were only available on one model. What year and model was it?

Dave57210 One of the more fascinating things about it was the idea of the retractable "training wheels" that were extended to hold it upright when stopped and retracted for driving. (Manual extension & retraction via a lever in the cockpit - in today's Hi-Tech world they'd be automatic!)

The copper pipes were the radiator for the V8 engine!

boothboy Well two of you PM'd me with the correct answer so I'll tell everyone else. The question was "What was Detroit's first V-8 and who used it?"
The answer is;

James Scripts Booth's Bi-AutoGo.

Built as a design study and unveiled in 1913 Booth at the age of twenty four, designed and built the vehicle. The vehicle featured the first V-8 engine ever built in Detroit, possessed a compressed air self-starter, had a four-speed transmission, and even boasted a retractable arm rest. Aluminum bodied with no visible hinges and flush doors, it seated three with the front seat tipping forward to allow passengers entry to the rear. Apparently it steered lousy at slow speeds and that was a contributing factor as to why it was never produced.
Pretty nifty vehicle!
