Lucky Number 13 Millionth Car Built at Flint
text size: A- A+
The carmaker announced that the aforementioned plant manufactured the 13 millionth vehicle. In an attempt to make all the bad luck go away, the workers slammed the Lucky 13 name on the 2011 GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD and quickly sold it to a Michigan area resident, James Stubbings. Coincidentally or not, this is the 13th GMC truck in his possession.
"I am happy to be a part of today's 13 millionth vehicle celebration,” Stubbings said. “I have been a proud owner of many GM products over the years and am especially excited that my latest purchase was built right here in Michigan!"
The Flint Assembly plant opened in 1947 and has been producing Chevrolet cars as part of GM’s Fisher Body Division. Over the years, Flint manufactured Chevrolet Bel Air, Impala, Monte Carlo, Fleetside pickups, Suburbans and, more recently, the current lineup of Chevrolet and GMC pickups, including the Sierra Denali.
“This is special day for the Flint Assembly and United Auto Workers Local 598 team,” Plant Manager Amy Farmer told employees and special guests during a celebration at the Flint plant. “Not only are we celebrating the 13 millionth vehicle that has been produced here since 1947, we are celebrating the heritage of some great GM products made here during the last 63 years.”
