The Sooner Model A Club is a Non-Profit Club Affiliated With The Model A Ford Club of America

Over 60 Years And Still Rolling!

The Sooner Model A Club of Oklahoma first met as the Oklahoma City Model A Club in 1960. In 1967, we became a charter member of the Model A Ford Club of America under our current name. 

Along with hundreds of other Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA) members, we serve as a community for the exchange of ideas and technical support for hobbyists while assisting members in their efforts to restore and preserve the Model A Ford. This site is one of the ways we have chosen to share what we know about this great car with our members and visitors.

Celebrating Henry’s Model A Since 1960

In the summer of 1960, seven Ford Model A enthusiasts gathered together in Oklahoma City and started a new organization called the Oklahoma City Model A Club. Later, as their membership grew, they created their club By-Laws and set the foundation for the club we have today. The club first petitioned the newly formed Model A Ford Club of America in 1963, but the lack of membership prevented the charter from being issued. Later in 1967, now with 27 members, the newly renamed club “The Sooner Model A Club” again petitioned MAFCA, and the charter was granted.

Just 5 years later, the club membership grew to over 80 members. This group met in several locations across the city, such as the old Dub Richardson Ford dealership and Woodson Park. As the club grew in a size, larger facilities were sought to accommodate our growing membership. Our current home is at the Will Rogers Garden Center. The first newsletter was published in January 1968. Mailed monthly, it included general club news along with birthdays, anniversaries, recipes, and upcoming activities. Along with these items, technical tips were shared with club members by seasoned and novice Model A mechanics. Typed manually on a typewriter long before the computer age, these first newsletters were quite a task for those early editors. These items are still shared today.
