As a young man, 16 or so,in about 1963, I used to purchase parts and receive a great deal of advice from Harold at Ford Obsolete on 4th Street in Santa Ana, California, if my mind is still working. He had used and OEM parts and new parts from Japan and Brazil, it seems to me. The overseas parts were not very good, but they were better than nothing and that was near the low point of parts for Model A parts. He had great patience with us kids as we did not know much (still don't) and he would explain a problem to us over and over until we understood...God Bless Him
