About Us

How we got started

In September 1959, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu invited owners of Model T Fords to an event at Beaulieu to celebrate the Model T’s 50th anniversary.

Lord Montagu suggested that a register of Model T’s be formed and subsequently the Model T Ford Register of Great Britain was founded in 1960 by the late Charles Pearce.

Our aims are to encourage the preservation and use of early Ford vehicles (1903 ~ 1927).

We have a thriving membership of over 450 in Britain and overseas.

Tours, (one day, weekend and longer) are organised throughout the summer season and a very successful members’ autojumble is held each autumn. A thriving spares service is operated on a mail-order basis and the club also offers a range of books, badges etc.

The Club is open to all those with an interest in the history, preservation, and enjoyment of the Model T Ford whether they are owners or not. The Club also covers all other Ford vehicles manufactured prior to 1927.
