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.

51st Texas Tour - Dallas Regional Group #115 Terrell, Texas
51st Texas Tour sponsored by the Dallas Regional Group #115. Honoring Fords and Greeting Friends. . Registration is now open for the 51st Texas Tour as we honor Fords and greet old (and new) Friends. Come turn back the clock to the simpler days of friendship and community, where we share laughs and discuss bruised knuckles as we gather together. To address the consistently rising costs to host this annual event, this year we will be scaling back the pageantry but maintaining the tradition of kinship, community, and exploring. Friday we’ll have a Ladies Luncheon including a scavenger hunt through the local businesses and decorated wall murals in downtown Terrell. Also available is a visit to a little-known chapter of World War II history for a tour of the first British Flying Training School where thousands of British cadets learned to fly and earn their wings over North Texas between 1941 and 1945. Friday night we’ll have an ice cream social with a fun and challenging Trivia Night. Saturday’s tour will wander through interesting sights around the area and ending at Hatfield Restorations in Canton, TX for our Concourse, lunch, and tour of their facilities. Saturday evening we’ll have our Awards Party and closing events. The headquarters hotel is the Terrell Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott (972-551-3200). Register by January 1st to be eligible for a drawing for one free night stay. The overflow hotels nearby are not blocked and can be contacted directly (Tru by Hilton Terrell at (469) 837-7200 or La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham Terrell at (469) 614-2905). .
