Model A Restorers Club

Henry Ford Award & Recipients

The Henry Ford Award is presented at the annual National Meet of the Model A Restorers Club to the top scoring car (or truck) in fine-point judging (500 point scale) earning a minimum of 465 points, as well as to any cars scoring within 10 points of the top car at that particular meet.

Beginning in 2011, all cars scoring 480 points and above are also recognized with a Henry award, regardless of the point spread to the top scoring car.

The Henry Ford Award recognizes those cars in fine point judging having the highest level of authenticity and restoration accuracy which best represents Ford's intended build of that model vehicle at its designated build date.

The competition and vehicle judging is conducted solely to the requirements of the Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards published jointly by MARC & MAFCA, and is not a direct competition or comparison between vehicles or members.

Every vehicle competes independently to the Standards, and is judged and scored objectively by a relatively large number of specialized judging teams led by experienced judges and team captains.
