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

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 all pre-1962, 4-cylinder Ford vehicles, from the earliest Fords ever made through to the 100E Popular, including all Model T's; Model A's; and all Anglias, Prefects and Populars. We also cater for 4-cylinder, Ford-powered tractors, railway locomotives, farm and fire equipment, etc. with engines of the same era. We also extend a welcome to owners of the 107E and 105E/123E/307E Anglia OHV models. You do not have to own an old car to be a member of the club.

 

The principle aims of the 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 will be encouraging 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.

 

The club is recognized by VicRoads and participates in the Club Permit Scheme and allows Victoria-based members with other vehicles (including vehicles of non-Ford manufacture) in their collections to obtain Club Permit Plates 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 allowed and welcomed on club runs. The club actively supports both the Association of Motoring Clubs and the Federation of Veteran, Vintage & Classic Car Clubs. The Club is comprehensively insured for public liability.

 

Members are kept informed of all club activities through a bi-monthly newsletter, "F.O.R.D. INK". We encourage members to receive this in .pdf form by email, as it is available several days before the printed copies sent by Australia Post, requires significantly less resources (manpower and time) and you also get to see the pictures 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 2017/18 at $30. For those members requiring 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. There is no "joining fee". Pro-rata fees apply after 1st January.

 

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