Give the tremendous amount of technology and automobile part experience that goes into each Ford car or truck, "Blue Oval" car and truck enthusiasts can definitely be proud to drive these trusty vehicles. Loyal owners are often sticklers for proper maintenance and repair, and tend to only buy aftermarket or genuine OEM Ford parts online.
CPD specializes in a wide variety of replacement parts for early through late-model Ford cars and trucks. Our online warehouse stocks popular automobile components and draws from a massive network of replacement part distributors, so most auto parts ship in just a day or two. Choose between genuine OEM Ford parts (just like you'd get from the dealer) and aftermarket components, which are often Ford OEM quality, without the dealer price premium. Cheap, used bits should only be used as a last resort, as these components are often just as worn-out as the auto part being replaced. Better to spend slightly more for brand-new units online, and not have to worry about yourself or a loved one being stranded on the side of the road when your car or truck breaks down!
History of Ford
Founded by Henry Ford in 1903 with twenty-eight thousand dollars of investment capital, the Ford Motor Company is currently the fourth-largest automaker in the world and is a routine recipient of initial quality awards from J.D. Power and Associates. It was one of the first companies to implement part and process standardization, and the use of special tools to reduce the need for skilled labor in mass manufacturing ("Fordism"). It is said that Henry even required his material suppliers to use wood shipping containers made to his exact specifications, which were disassembled after delivery and turned into ready-made parts for Model T seats. These advances in efficiency enabled the company to sell automobiles at a cost almost anyone could afford (including his employees), which revolutionized personal transportation in pre-WWI America.
With Alan R. Mulally at the helm as President and CEO, the Ford Motor Company is currently headquartered in Deerborn, Michigan, and has more than 200,000 employees working in divisions throughout the world. Ford designs and manufactures a wide variety of car and trucks appropriate for each region, from sub-compact cars in Asia to family sedans in Australia. The Ford parts to build these vehicles are either manufactured locally to reduce shipping costs, or the necessary assembly parts are imported.
Ford invests a considerable amount of research into environmentally-sound vehicles and alternative propulsion systems, such as compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles, flexible fuel (E85, E100) automobiles, hydrogen fuel cell power trains, and electric/hybrid cars and trucks. And if equipment is not readily available for these high-tech projects, Ford doesn't hesitate to license technology from other part manufacturers.
