Historic Automobiles Sloan Museum's Vehicle Collection

Courtland Center is the temporary home of over 30 vehicles representing a cross section of Sloan Museum's automotive collection. A variety of vehicles are on display, including concept cars, trucks, and classic cars dating from the early 1900s to the late 1980s. All of these vehicles have historic ties to Flint and Genesee County. Whether it was assembled in the area, entirely Flint-built, or features Flint-made parts, each vehicle helps tell a story about how the automotive industry shaped life in Flint—and how Flint helped put the world on wheels.
