“Buy the Foot” capital campaign


The Early Ford V8 Foundation & Museum is growing  and is in dire need of an expansion of their Museum in Auburn, Indiana. They have drawn up plans to double its size to accommodate the additional displays which will enhance the museum goer’s experience. They need to raise upwards of $600,000 or so to complete the  8700 square foot addition.


The “Buy the Foot” capital campaign is in full swing. When you “Buy the Foot”, you will receive a certificate and your name will be added to a large plaque that will hang in the addition. The hope is to break ground next Spring!

Click here to download this “Buy the Foot” donation form, or call/email the contacts listed on the form.

The 8700 square foot addition will cost considerably less than $150/ft. So selling square feet will not only help with the construction, but will provide needed funds for landscaping and parking lot, as well as money to continue with the next phase. Designated as Building Fund money, it can only be used for that purpose. It’s a long-term fundraiser to which you can donate at any time. You can also buy additional feet as
time goes on.


Museum is located at:
5634 C. R. 11A
AUBURN, IN 46706
Hours are: 9-3 Mondays, 9-5 Tuesdays through Saturdays. Closed Sundays.

    On behalf of the Early Ford V-8 Foundation & Museum, many thanks to Angelo VanBogart and his Old Cars Weekly team for putting this story on their website. 2016 will be a pivotal year for the V-8 Museum as they increase their size to accommodate promised vehicles and other V-8-related items. As V-8ers age, we hear more and more about downsizing collections and assuring that those collections are taken care of in the future. Support from Old Cars Weekly goes a long way to help get the word out to the old car community that museums like the Early Ford V-8 Foundation’s exist and what help they can use to continue their mission of “Preserving the Past.” If you’re a Ford V-8 enthusiast, please consider becoming a member of the Early Ford V-8 Foundation & Museum.
