  To promote getting Early V-8 vehicles out on the road, the Early Ford V-8 Club sanctions one or more National Tours annually.  The purpose is to drive Club vehicles in an informal setting, do some sightseeing, and promote V-8 camaraderie.  National Tours are hosted by Regional Groups and are available to all National members.

The National Tour program formally began in 2012 with The Great River Tour, hosted by the Northern Illinois and Twin Cities groups.

The National Club provides guidelines for Regional Groups considering hosting a National Tour.  The guidelines include an application form to submit the National Tour proposal to the National Board of Directors for review and approval.  Also included are a sample registration form and a sample questionnaire to evaluate the tour.
