Seems cheap, do you get all the presses, paint booths, engine plant, production line etc etc.

I wonder if any Asian car companies would be interested?

You get to buy the empty buildings, and the land on which they stand.
Not the presses, dies, engine casting equipment, or any other Ford IP.


Some of the buildings are apparently heritage listed, so redevelopment might be limited.

Some say that Ford will shut down or sell their factories in Argentina and Brazil.

If you were to buy the buildings, and ran a Ford Mustang Supercar, would that make you a Ford factoryvteam?

Logical place for a Ford Motor Museum - throw in some old race cars and earn some pocket money.

The Ford Experience or whatever it was called didn't do too well down there.

I'd go, but would there be enough paying customers through the door?
