Does Obsolete ford parts exist?

Kinda worried guys for one is this a real place and secondly are they still in business? I placed and order with them 8 days ago got conformation same day and nothing since email 3 times all came back called 3 times got voicemail 1st time now box is full. Worried it may be some sort of a scam should I cancel my mastercard I gave them? Never orderd from them before are they legit?

It might be a one man operation and he uses the week end to hunt up used parts. I know of a few that do that . Or they may have got you . I say call on monday and if not satisfied cancel the order or card.

8 days with no sign of activity and no way to communicate with them is bad news, even if it is a real business. Think of what would happen if you do get the parts and there's an issue and needs to be returned. It's time to call your credit card company.

Their website looks like a joke. I'm sure it was at one time a real thing, but it's obvious there's not a whole lot going on there. For all you know, the company could be long gone and no one ever bothered to take down the website and automated payment system. There are all sorts of vendors all over the country these days with reliable customer service and a sizable customer base sourcing from the same handful of ODMs, no reason to mess with these one-off places.

Founded in Nashville GA in 1952, formerly known as Obsolete Ford Parts Company, Old Reliable. Who owns it today is anyone's guess.

Name changed in the 1990's when FoMoCo's lawyers notified all the people selling used, NOS obsolete and/or reproduction parts that they had to pay a license fee in order to use "Ford" in their business name.
