The Early Ford V8 Club of America
UK Regional Group 127
Welcome to the UK Region of the Early Ford V8 Club of America. Dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of all Ford Motor Company vehicles manufactured from 1932 to 1953, in particular those vehicles which used the Ford V8 sidevalve engine.
The Early Ford V8 Club of America was formed in 1963 at San Leandro. California. The aim of the Club is quite simply to restore the Flathead (Sidevalve) engined cars and commercials of the V8 configuration, produced by the Ford Motor Company between 1932 and 1953.

In England we are known as the England Regional Group or The Early Ford V8 Club UK 127 (Founded 1988). We also have links and exchange newsletters with other Groups, in particular Norway and Canada.
We encourage the restoration of the Ford V8. Whether it be English, European or of U.S.A. origin. Technical and Spares information are provided free to club members together with our D.V.L.A. Registration
