Historic Flint Bricks

Flyers detailing the specifics of our “Historic Flint Brick” program have been mailed out to our members and supporters. If you did not receive a flyer and would like more information, please contact us at (800) 53-VETTE or visit our website at:

These collectible pieces of Corvette history are from the Assembly Plant in Flint, Michigan, where the 1953 Corvette was made. They were donated to the Museum to use as a fundraiser by Chevrolet. Bricks are commemorated with an engraved plate featuring a 4-digit number that you can select or you may place an order for a Museum assigned number. A certificate of authenticity also accompanies each brick. If you or your club would like to receive flyers to help us promote the program, please contact us.
