Sponsor Spotlight: Early Ford V8 Foundation

April 17, 2024

The Early Ford V-8 Foundation exists to collect, preserve, exhibit and interpret the history and heritage of the products manufactured by the Ford Motor Company between 1932 and 1953. The Museum is located in Auburn, Indiana, a town rich with automotive history. We were fortunate to visit the Early Ford V-8 Museum during the 2023 Spring Regional Rally presented by Stahls Automotive Foundation and it was incredible! It’s a must-see if you’re in the area.

The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum is a one-of-a-kind museum and consists of three major sections: an early Ford Speed exhibit, Industrial Engine/Farming displays and a 1940’s Ford Service Garage. The Frank Corey Gallery houses many 1932-1953 vehicles, and Floyd Motors depicts a 1936 Ford dealership, which includes every model that Ford produced, including the exceptionally rare stainless steel 1936 Ford sedan.

Our partnership with the Early Ford V-8 Foundation started several years ago, and has grown into a great relationship with foundation President, Craig Floyd, who joins us each year on the Great Race. Nate Fluke is another valuable connection between the Great Race and the Early Ford V-8 Foundation, and it’s these types of friendships that help us grow the Great Race community far beyond a typical sponsor relationship.
