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.

Updates to the V-8 Forum - 03-26-2019

Multiple photos can now be loaded - and double postings have been corrected

Mar 26, 2019
MORE The web hosting company, BigGiantMedia, has been working hard to make changes and improvements to the Early Ford V-8 Club web site V-8 Forum. One of those changes has been to address the need to post more than one photo per discussion entry. 
We would like to announce that this has been addressed and registered members can now post up to five photos with each V-8 Forum discussion entry. 
Please note, so that all photo entries are of the same size and format, once you attach the photos to your discussion, it will take some time for the system to re-size and format the photos. 
Let us know if you have any problems. We hope that you are pleased with the results. 

And.........we believe we have corrected the double posting issue. This was where a entry was submitted, and then showed on the same discussion more than once.
Again, if it happens we would like to know.


Regional Groups set to celebrate!
