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.

Accessories Store is on the move and also temporarily closed

The Accessories Store is on the Move and also temporarily closed

Starting June 10, 2024


For many years Dave and Carol Rasmussen have been our V-8 Club Accessories Staff.  They have decided that it is their time to retire and we can not thank them enough for all their time and effort running the store and dealing with all members and non-member purchases.

With the Rasmussen’s decision, the Board of Directors has worked out a plan to package everything up and move the V-8 Club Store to Tennessee.

This move will take place during the month of July of 2024.  For that reason, the V-8 Store will be unavailable during the move.

In the current issue of the V-8 TIMES, you will see messages on any Accessories ads that say the Accessory Store will be closed from June 1 to August 1, 2024.  We need to do this to make sure that orders are not placed.  The Online Store is also closed.

Once the store merchandise has been moved and inventoried, all orders will again be accepted, with deliveries starting around August 1, 2024.

While this is a major event for the Club, we hope that everything goes smoothly and we are back up and selling the Early Ford V-8 Club Accessories very soon.  Watch for the Accessories Store re-opening announcement.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and being a member.
