The Early Ford V‑8 Club of America

Preserving Flathead Fords Around the World

Founded in San Leandro, California in 1963, our club recognizes all Ford Motor Company vehicles made between 1932 and 1953, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, commercial vehicles, tractors and other Ford powered vehicles built around the world utilizing the 4, 6, 8, and 12 cylinder engines produced by Ford Motor Company.

Today, as the Marquee Club of our represented vehicles, with membership of over 9,000 and 125 Regional Groups worldwide, we are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of all Ford Motor Company vehicles built between 1932 and 1953.

The club's award-winning, bi-monthly magazine, the V-8 Times, is circulated all over the world and is acclaimed as one of the best car club magazines anywhere. The V-8 Times features technical articles, shop tips, questions and answers by our panel of experts, nostalgia, club and regional group news, offerings of accessories and restoration manuals found nowhere else - plus classified ads for cars and parts.

If you're not already a member, we invite you to Join Today and explore the works of the Early Ford V-8 Club of America.

President's Message - Jan - Feb 2017

Feb 15, 2017
From the Jan - Feb 2017 V-8 TIMES
MORE From the Oval Office

Dear Fellow V-8 Club Members,
I would like to take this time to introduce myself as your 2017 National President.
I am Phillip Hall, Sr. from Southern California residing in Camarillo.  I have been a member of the Early Ford V-8 Club since 1999, a National Board Member since 2013, Regional Club President for several years and co-host of two Western National Meets.
Over the years, I have been a board member in several different car clubs but have always found the Early Ford V-8 Club to be the most satisfying group.  I can only hope to serve the entire Early Ford V-8 Club members and Regional members with the utmost respect.
 Here's a little about myself.  I have been married to Connie Sue Hall for 47 years and without her would not be here or have what  I have today.  She keeps me grounded and looking forward.  We have three great kids and seven grandchildren.  I still work and own my own plumbing business in Ventura County since 1977.
I hope to serve you with the same loyalty and guidance that Ken Bounds and all the past presidents before me have.  Ken Bounds and Steve Lemmons have been great leaders and instructors, giving me the guidance and knowledge to feel comfortable in the next step.  My goal is to always be here for the members and do you proud. 
I hope that everyone had a great holiday season and now on to a great 2017 with your V-8.
Have a great year and I hope to see you at one of the National Meets.  Remember there are two so far this year -- Chantilly, Virginia and Salem, Oregon.

Phillip Hall, Sr.
2017 National President
