We are a traditional classic car owners club for owners of small Ford sidevalves built between 1932 and 1962.

 

We cover a vast range of vehicles from the early Ford Model Y saloons, right through to the 107E Ford Prefect (with the OHV engine from the 105E Anglia) including all vans, commercials and specials based upon the ubiquitous four cylinder side-valve engine.

Sadly due to the coronavirus  there will not be a printed magazine this month as the print house is closed until further notice. Our magazine will be available in digital form from around 15th April in the members area of the FSOC website. 

Please note - the password WILL NOT change - use the same password as in the February magazine.  

We have tried to publicise this as much as possible but if you know of anyone who does not access the internet please also let them know.

Covid-19 FSOC Events update

March 24, 2020

The UK Government advised amongst other things the cancellation of all public events in response to the coronavirus crisis. On that basis, we are not listing any events scheduled before May 31.

 

However, we cannot yet say if any events after this date will be permitted to go ahead either. Therefore check with the organisers before going to ANY event.

Your Regional Contact may be able to update you as time goes on, meanwhile we are in unknown territory - maybe we will be reverting to the original 'horse power'.

Classic Car & Restoration Show NEC 27-29 March

March 27, 2020

                     CANCELLED

It is with great sadness that Clarion Events has decided to postpone the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery. The event team has been continually monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is the most important factor and therefore the only action for all involved is to postpone.
