Flint Bricks to Commemorate a Special Event

Personalize a historic flint brick with a commemorative plate highlighting an anniversary, birthday or Corvette Club name for the Corvette enthusiast in your life! This unique gift is one they will cherish because it was preserved from the Corvette Assembly Plant in Flint, Michigan where the 1953 Corvette was built. You can recognize a special occasion or offer a flint brick to your Corvette Club or members. You can even mark your participation at an NCM event and select a specific numbered brick with up to five digits - 45,000. These special pieces of Corvette history are available at $100 for NCM members and $150 for non-members. All non-members ordering a flint brick will receive a “complimentary” Individual membership to the Museum.
