Flint’s automotive heritage is well represented in the Sloan Museum Collection. In the Perry Archives, our automotive materials span Buick Motor Company’s history from 1902 to 1999, as well as literature, manuals, press packets, and photographs. Chevrolet and Durant Motors materials are also available. Although we do not have materials for every car made, we have information to assist restorers, collectors, and enthusiasts alike. Visit our Automotive Research page for more details.
