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.

Anniversary Quilt to be created for Grand National

Apr 26, 2017 - From the March April 2017 issue of the V-8 TIMES

Calling All Regional Group Quilters -- 2018 National Quilt

In early America, the quilt was a necessary item of bedding for those harsh winters.  Later, they

became collectible and valuable works of art.  More recently, the quilt has taken on a whole new meaning

as a means of making a statement of world affairs.

Now it’s time for the Early Ford V-8 Club to create its own quilt in commemoration of our

upcoming 55th Anniversary.  Plans call for this quilt to make its debut at the 2018 Grand National

Meet in Dearborn.  This quilt will feature squares from Regional Groups throughout the world.  Each of these

squares will be individualized with the Regional Group name and location.  Regional Groups are

encouraged to decorate their square with scenes or details unique to their part of the world.

Each Regional Group is asked to submit a piece of 100% cotton material 12-inches square.  Please

allow a one-inch border to be used for assembly purposes.  This will give us an 11-inch square Regional 

Group message.  In that area will appear the name and/or logo of the group and its location.  Various types

 of artwork are encouraged to decorate the square with some symbol(s) of the region represented. 

 Regional Groups are encouraged to be as creative as possible.  Here’s a chance to get the quilters in

 your group involved.

Once the square is completed, please send it to:

Milly Scheidt

6558 4th Section Rd #211

Brockport NY 14420

We are asking that all completed squares be sent to Milly by Sept. 1, 2017 to give us time to

assemble the quilt top.  We will then have it professionally quilted.

If you know how to sew and/or quilt. you are invited to participate in this unique project.  Get an

early start today.  Let’s see those pins and needles flying.

Also if you know of or use any professional quilt finishers, please send me their name, address,

and phone number so we may speak to them about finishing our quilt.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or would like more information on this project,

please contact Joyce Parsons (512) 515-5266 or e-mail: jnparsons1114@gmail.com or Milly at

the address above, e-mail: millysch@frontiernet.net or (585) 748-1604.


President's Message - Mar / Apr 2017

Apr 17, 2017
From the Mar - Apr 2017 V-8 TIMES

From the Oval Office

Dear Fellow V-8 Club Members,

Connie and I hope this finds everyone well and ready to hit the road.  Winter is coming to an end and it is time to get the cars ready for the road.  There are some exciting tours planned all over the country this year and two Meets are in the works for 2017, one in Chantilly, VA and one in Salem, Oregon.

Of course we encourage the local Region Groups to get out and have fun day trips for your members, mainly we hope you get out and enjoy your old car.  I will be at Eastern National Meet in Chantilly, Virginia and at the Western National Meet in Salem, Oregon.  I hope see many of you there.

Planning has begun for the 2018 Grand National Meet in Dearborn, Michigan.  Looking at the year 2018, it seems like we have a lot of time to prepare but in reality it is only 15 months away, it will be here before we know it.  The committees are already starting to talk about things that need to be done - planning fun events, food, making lodging arrangements and much more.

I want to say Thank You from the Early Ford V-8 Club Board and myself to Dave and Nancy Collette for making all the arrangements for our February Face-to-Face board meeting in Ft. Myers. Florida.  Thanks to their hard work we were well taken care, during our time together, accomplishing a lot in our meetings.  All our Directors were in attendance along with staff, and more.

We had a long agenda this year, and were able to move right through each item coming to decisions on many topics.  The Collette's had us pampered from the time we got there till we left with all kinds of activities for the spouses that attend while the board members were in their meetings.  What great host and hostess they made.  Thank You to the Collette's.

Also I want to thank all the spouses, partners and family that support your board members in the time they spend working on Early Ford V-8 Club items and meetings such as the Face-to-Face Meeting.

Speaking of Directors, there are four positions open for the 2018-2020 terms.  Contact any of the current National Directors to find out more information.  The deadline is June 15, which is not that far away! Have you ever considered being a Director?  Think about it.

Have a great Spring.  I hope to s you in Chantilly or Salem or on the road in your V-8.

Phillip Hall

2017 National President
