The 1931 Model A Ford
What is the A-400 Group?
The A-400 Group is an association of admirers of the 1931 Model A Ford Convertible Sedan. The A-400 club was formed in the mid-1950’s and was chartered as a MAFCA Chapter in 1974. The group is spread across the USA and several other countries around the world. The club functions are to publish a newsletter, maintain an A-400 web site and to sponsor seminars at get-togethers at both MAFCA and MARC meets. Our focus is to:
- collect and publish information on the A-400
- to maintain a roster of all known owners
- to foster communication between A-400 owners
