Automotive enthusiasts from around the world have celebrated the Model A Ford for years for its simple functionality, reliable design, and lasting beauty. In the mid 1950’s, to many people, the Model A was just a used car, but to others it was a thing of beauty to be preserved and enjoyed. From 12 such enthusiasts came the formation of the Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA) in 1955.
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America formed the following year, in 1956. It is a non-profit organization founded to celebrate the preservation and use of those historic Model A Ford automobiles built by Henry Ford during the years 1928 through 1931.
The club was continues to encourage the preservation and driving of the Model A Ford. Today, si years later, we are still going strong with the same affection for these fine functionally designed automobiles. We are a club that is small, yet has all levels of restoring experience from beginner to advanced to help guide Model A enthusiasts.
Our club members own and operate a number of Model A styles, including Tudors, Pick-ups, Fordors, Roadsters, Phaetons, and Woodies. Because of the range of body styles, availability of parts and know-how is accessible through club members. Being a club member is a good way of maintaining your Model A in operative condition.
