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.

2019 -2021 National Board Election Ballots

Oct 16, 2018
MORE EFV-8C Members: 
There has been some discussion about an incorrect zip code on the Director Election ballot that is included with the September / October 2018 issue of the V-8 TIMES.

Yes, the zip code on the address side of the ballot is incorrect for the city and state.  First, there is nothing wrong with the ballot and as such there will not be another mailing of a new ballot.

You can do one of two things before mailing the completed ballot.  1) Do nothing other than mark your choices on the voting side and attach a stamp and mail, or 2) After marking your choices on the voting side, attach a stamp, and change the zip code from 04542 to 94542 and then mail the ballot.

We have contacted the US Postal Service and they will deliver the postcard ballots to the proper address (even with the incorrect zip code).  And the ballots have been arriving with the incorrect zip code.  But, to make sure that all ballots get to the proper address, we will be extending the deadline for arrival until November 30, 2018.

Thank you for voting for the candidates of your choice and mailing in the 2019-2021 EFV-8C National Director ballot.
