The story of the Revs Institute begins when Miles Collier acquired the Cunningham Museum and started adding to the collection of important vehicles. Recent partnership with Stanford University has made this museum one of the world’s preeminent sources of automotive information.
On Friday, June 30, 1953, workers at the Chevrolet plant in Flint, Michigan, assembled the first Corvette, a two-seater sports car that would become an American icon. The first completed production car rolled off the assembly line two days later, one of just 300 Corvettes made that year.
Since the very first models rolled off the production line, automobiles have held a special place in the hearts and minds of people around the world. In particular, those associated with celebrities and their larger-than-life personas have truly made an indelible mark on car enthusiasts and collectors for nearly a century.
