About Us

The Diamond Tread Model A Ford Club of Downey California is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the 1928-1931 vintage Model A Ford automobile. Currently our club has over 50 families as members, many of which own, restore and drive Model A Fords.  A subset of our members have formed a group called “Henry’s Helpers”, which assist members not as acquainted with the Model A .  Henry's Helpers provide technical assistance for the purpose of education and keeping our club members actively involved in events.

 

Our club was formed in March 1969 and remains active with monthly tours, annual club picnic/fundraiser and holiday events.
