All About the Ford Junkyard
When the Ford Motor Company closed its doors in Dearborn, Michigan, in July of 1966, many of its plants and production facilities across the country were immediately shuttered. This included the Ford Yard, which was located in Detroit’s Rosemont neighborhood. For some time, the Fordyards’ employees were told that they would have to look for a new job elsewhere, since there would be no work available in the plant. At the same time, the company was undergoing major structural changes, and there were many rumors that the closure was related to the rising costs of motor parts.
However, no work was ever found at the Ford yard. Instead, Ford decided to create a new division for the production of Saab cars, and began selling Saab cars from plants in Mexico. While the Ford cars were not being built in Mexico, they were being sent to the Ford factory in Dearborn, where production continued. It was rumored at the time that some of the vehicles that did make it into Mexico had been repaired in California by Ford workers who did not want to leave their jobs. The theory goes that these cars contained parts from the Ford Yard that could have be used to save on costs.

Over the past few years, as rumors about the Ford Junkyard existence had swirled around the country, various conspiracy theories had been circulating around the internet, all saying that the Ford vehicles at the former Ford yard had been used for illegal activities. Many wondered if the closure was related to the upcoming anniversary of the closing of the facility or a criminal case involving organized crime. In response, the FBI released a statement saying that it was not related to any criminal cases. The agency also confirmed that it was not currently investigating the rumors that had circulated about Ford vehicles being used for illegal activities at the former Ford yard.

In August of last year, I went to the Ford junkyard located on Wisconsin Avenue in Detroit. It was one of the last places in Detroit, where the Ford name was used by a major automaker. I saw Ford Taurus rips the roof off a sport-utility vehicle and asked a worker if the vehicle was used in any illegal activities. He told me that no, the vehicle was not being used for that purpose. Later that day I went back to the junkyard and saw two more Taurus rip the roofs off of sport-utility vehicles.

I also drove by the former Ford warehouse located across the street from the junkyard several times over the years. It is interesting that so many people are so fascinated by the Ford brand, especially when they hear news reports of the abuses that were committed at the former Ford warehouses. The speculation is that Ford vehicles, such as the Taurus, acquired in the Ford factory through abuse at some point during their lifetime. These Ford vehicles are often auctioned off to make room for the next model.
The Ford Auto Company has an interesting history, going back to at least the 1950s. Some of America’s most popular cars such as the Ford Mustang and the Ford Corolla have been built at the Ford factory. In fact, many Ford cars have been so well built and maintained over the years that they are considered collector’s items. If you are looking for a very unique and original set of auto parts, it might be best to visit one of the Ford junkyards in your area. The quality and craftsmanship of these older Ford cars can be astounding.
