Club History

The Model T Ford was built for model years 1909 through 1927. More than 15 million Model T’s rolled off the assembly lines and put the world on wheels. Their durability, the availability of parts, and their simplicity make them a practical car for a hobbyist. There are many Model T’s still on the roads today being driven and enjoyed all over the world.

Our club was chartered on January 10, 1976 as the Ontario Region chapter of the Model T Ford Club International. MTFCI was formed in 1953 as an umbrella organization for Model T clubs all over the world. They handle administration, organize events, and publish the award winning “Model T Times” magazine bi-monthly keeping us informed about our hobby and related activities. The objective of the club is to develop and promote the history, restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of the Model T Ford automobiles, accessories, lore, literature, and anything else that is related. Our chapter publishes “The Commutator” newsletter to keep our members informed about the club, its activities, and its members.

The Model T Ford Club International maintains a strong base of senior members who have owned their Model T Fords for many years. Many members have multiple Model T Fords in their collection. From this solid base, the Club is growing faster than most antique automobile clubs because family-oriented events have always promoted youth involvement in club activities. New generations have taken a serious interest in the Model T hobby and have been acquiring cars of their own at reasonable prices or making use of their family’s Model T. A recent Ontario Region tour event with 50 Model T’s included 22 youth in attendance either driving their own Model T or riding with family and friends. Because of our active chapter, enthusiastic Board of Directors, and skillful planning of local activities, the Ontario Region chapter has grown to be one of the largest and most active chapters of MTFCI.

Membership is open to everyone and it is not necessary to own a Model T Ford to participate. See our Join Us page for more information about how to get involved with our club.
