manufacture cars/parts ? and special order ? Sign In

Question 1
I am curious how long a manufacture support there car models. For example if one bought a car will the car parts/replacement parts still be available 2,5,10,20,25,30,40 years from now.
Or at what point will you have to specially order them. (i.e how long does a manufacture or place keep producing parts for there cars they pump out)

question 2
If one needed to special order a part I would imagine there is limits on this or can you provided you have enough money rebuild a 1910 /20 vintage car that is falling apart?
And what are the companies that do the special manufacturing requests.

Used to be that a new car maker would produce all parts for about 7 model years and popular parts at their discretion and by demand. Aftermarket parts are available for reasonable cars for decades - service parts - body and special parts become difficult depending on the model.

! 1910 and 1920s!! Some stuff you can find and some some items you would have to custom make up, machine yourself or find someplace that can if you have specs and a bazillion bucks,

Yes, the law only requires 7 years for manufacturers but aftermarket companies will make parts for as long as there is someone to buy them.

So other then the manufacturers themselves how many different aftermarket companies have the equipment to duplicate or produces parts compatible with your car.
I guess what I am getting at is I was under the impression that only the manufacturers had the equipment/machinery to build engines/most car parts and that the aftermarket companies where just buying in bulk (like a wholesaler). Is this not true?

Replacement parts are manufactured by many aftermarket companies but they aren't necessarily the same quality as OEM parts.
