Welcome to F.O.R.D. Club of Australia Inc
(Ford Owners, Restorers & Drivers Club of Aust)





Our Club, the Ford Owners, Restorers and Drivers Club of Australia Inc., generally referred to as "The F.O.R.D. Club of Australia" or simply FORDCA was founded in 2006 and caters for small pre-1963, 4-cylinder Ford vehicles, from the earliest English & Australian Small Fords through to the 100E series of Anglias, Prefects and Populars, 107E Prefects and 105E/123E/307E Anglias and their commercial derivatives. The Club also caters for special vehicles, machinery and equipment historically powered by 4-cylinder, 8 & 10 Hp sidevalve Ford engines as above. All vehicles, machinery and equipment should comply with State Safety Requirements and relevant acts. Modified vehicles will be accepted as Club vehicles only if they meet the our Club criteria.


You do not have to own an old car to be a member of our Club.


The principle aims of our Club are to:

  1. Encourage the restoration and use of Early Small Fords;

  2. Foster family participation and encourage comradeship by attendance at meetings, outings and social occasions, with the accent on having fun with our little Fords.

 

It is intended to hold meetings and outings in areas where there are three or more financial members and for this purpose we encourage the formation of Local Area Groups. At present we have a Melbourne (Eastern Suburbs) Group based around Boronia, a Central Goldfields Area Group based in Lockwood South and a Tasmanian Group based in Hobart. All Groups are free to organize their own club runs via the main Committee.

 

Our Club is recognized by VicRoads and participates in the Victorian Club Permit Scheme and allows Victoria-based members with other vehicles (including non-Ford manufactured) in their collections to obtain a Club Permit for those vehicles providing that they have a Club appropriate vehicle on the road or actively under restoration with a plan for its early completion. These "alternative vehicles" are welcomed on Club runs. Our Club actively supports both the Association of Motoring Clubs and the Federation of Veteran, Vintage & Classic Car Clubs.


Our Club is insured for public liability.

 

Members are kept informed of all Club activities through email and a bi-monthly newsletter, "F.O.R.D. INK". We encourage members to receive this in .pdf form by email, as it less expensive and is available several days before the printed copies sent by Australia Post, requires significantly less resources (manpower and time) and is also in full colour (where applicable).

 

All members are required to be over 18 years of age. The membership year starts on 1st July and the Committee has set the annual subscription for 2022/23 at $30. For those members wishing to receive their newsletter in hardcopy and by AusPost, there is an additional charge of $35, to cover the Club costs of printing, stationery and postage. Pro-rata fees apply after 1st January.


As from the 1st July 2022, a once off Joining fee of $25 applies to new memberships.

 

For further information about this friendly and progressive club, please do not hesitate to contact Bill Ballard, the Membership Secretary, on (03) 9762 9974.
