Model A Ford Club of America
250 South Cypress Street, La Habra CA 90631-5515
Model A Ford Foundation, Inc, (MAFFI) was formed in December 1986. It was approved by California on February 24, 1987 and the IRS approved it as a 501c3 tax exempt organization on June 2, 1987.
The first President of MAFFI was Edie Jones. MAFFI has continued to grow and gain nationwide support from both MAFCA and MARC members. The Foundation sponsors research work on Model A parts drawings, upholstery, factory photographs, Ford Advertisements, and other activities.
In 2010, attention was turned to finding a suitable location for creation of a Model A Ford Museum. The Gilmore Car Museum campus in Michigan was chosen as the site. Groundbreaking took place in April 2012. The building construction was completed and turned over to the Foundation in September 2012. The Grand Opening was held in May 2013. Every year, a special Model A Day celebration is held on the third weekend of September.
Membership in MAFFI is encouraged and donations to the Museum are welcome.
