In 1959, at an event to mark the Model T Ford’s 50th anniversary, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu suggested that a register of surviving Model Ts should be written. The Model T Ford Register of Great Britain was subsequently founded the following year, with the aim of encouraging the preservation and use of early Ford vehicles (1903 to 1927).
Today, the Model T Ford Register of Great Britain has a membership of over 400 people in Britain and overseas, and organises rallies and an autojumble. A thriving spares service operates on a mail-order basis and the club also offers a good range of books.
The club is open to all those with an interest in the Model T Ford, be they owners or enthusiasts, and the club covers all Ford vehicles manufactured prior to 1927. The Model T Ford Register of Great Britain is a Chapter of both the Model T Ford Club of America and the Model T Ford International.
