Saving the Past for the Future
Who We Are
The Ford/Fordson Collectors Association Inc (we call ourselves F/FCA) is a non-profit Corporation formed in 1992, dedicated to “Saving the past for the future”. The purpose was to form an organization dedicated to preserving the names and history of Fordson, Ford-Ferguson and Ford tractors along with Dearborn and Ford implements. We accomplish this by publishing a news magazine we refer to as “The Journal” that is mailed to our members four times per year. We also offer a registry in which members may record their above mentioned tractors and implements. Unfortunately, the registry information is current only at the time the information for it is received. If owners sell, trade, or add to their collections and don’t inform us, then it becomes out of date. The Registry contains approximately 3000 pieces.
What We Do
We meet each year to conduct our Annual Meeting and Show. This event is moved about the U.S. and held in a different location each year by a host organization which will be featuring Ford/Fordson as part of their annual event. We typically have about 300 tractors and about 100 pieces of equipment along with extensive memorabilia, Scale model & toy collections on display. We also have a number of members selling replacement parts, NOS parts, used parts, and anything imaginable for the Ford/Fordson tractor and equipment lines. Yet other members may conduct technical discussions, demonstrations, seminars, and operations of this extensive line of farm equipment, Recently Mr. Harold Brock, The 95 year old former Chief Engineer and Head of Tractor Production for Ford Motor Company from 1939 to 1959 attended our 2009 meeting. He gave us an insight of what it was like keeping Henry Ford happy, About building these Ford tractors many years ago, as well as conducting a most interesting question and answer session with members and attendees.
The F/FCA also sells items such as shirts, jackets, caps and other items commemorating Ford/Fordson and our club. There are presently 16 Directors, and a number of Advisors who plan and carry out the meeting and other Club matters throughout the year. We always look forward to the next show/meeting so that we may again have a “reunion of our big Ford family”. The Annual Meeting is just around the corner! Won’t you please consider joining us and enjoying the fun.
