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.

After 17 Years - Dues Will Increase

Effective April 1, 2023

Mar 22, 2023
From the Board of Directors

From the 2023 National President’s Message in the March / April issue of the V-8 TIMES:

At our February National Board Meeting we had to make some very tough decisions.  The first decision was that we must raise National Dues.  As everyone knows prices for everything have been skyrocketing and it is no different for us.  We have not had a dues increase in about 17 years.  So the board has worked very hard to keep rates down for a long time but it can no longer stay the same.  The second big decision was made to update the 2023 Roster digitally.  There will be no Hard Copy Roster in 2023.  You will have all the updated information this year available in the Roster on the website.  We are working to decide how the Roster will be handled in 2024.  It may be a different format, but we will keep you informed.

Attached is a new printable Membership form.
