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.

Australia Ford V-8 National Meet - QEFV8 RG # 157 Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia
Ford V-8 National Meet - Toowoomba 2021. Sponsored by the Queensland Early Ford V-8 Club, Regional Group # 157 . The Early Ford V-8 Club of America has four Regional Groups in Australia. Every two years, on a rotating basis, each RG organises a V-8 Nationals. The initial V-8 Nationals was held in Beenleigh, Queensland back in 1988. Two years later, it was organised by the New South Wales RG, followed two years later by the Victorian RG, then finally to the RG in South Australia. This is a very popular and successful event; bringing early Fords from across the country together in one place. This event aims to celebrate Ford, Mercury and Lincoln vehicles built between 1932-1954 that retain their original Flathead V-8 engine. The organising for the planned 2020 Early Ford V-8 Nationals was the responsibility of the Queensland Early Ford V-8 Club. Unfortunately, it had to be postponed on account of the Corona-19 Virus. This event has now been rescheduled for May next year, 2021. The event comprises of a display day, a tour, a morning tea & lunch as well as a presentation dinner, plus visits to interesting places. The destination for the 17th Nationals is Toowoomba, with the theme being "up on the Downs".
