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.

2020 Early Ford V-8 Regional Group Membership Drive Postponed

Apr 17, 2020
MORE The 2020 Early Ford V-8 Club Regional Group Membership Drive has been postponed.

Given the magnitude of “Stay-at-Home” orders issued by states across the nation, the Early Ford V8 Club Officers and Directors regret to announce postponement of the 2020 Regional Group Membership Drive.  Considerations driving this decision include:

  •  ·         Inability of club members to meet in groups for planning and implementing crucial Drive details
  • ·         Cancellation of all meetings, shows and outings eliminate the primary attraction for prospective members
  • ·         Impacts of social-distancing restrict opportunities for club members to recruit neighbors, friends and new acquaintances
  • ·         Effective recruitment requires face-to-face contact, not the impersonal phone call affording an easy “No thanks.”
  • ·         Chances for implementing a successful Drive with significant membership growth will remain impacted by current Covid-19 conditions for an unknown number of months

The National Club Officers and Directors will announce in November plans for the 2021 Regional Group Membership Drive

The future 2021 Drive will be a motivator to bring back members with new memberships, enthusiasm and fresh ideas.

Be thinking now of ways to use the 2021 Spring Drive to the benefit of your Regional Group
