Meet the owner of Rusty Acres, Bob Eubanks -Yep' this is
the "big cheese" himself, -of course, leaning
on one of his race cars was about the only way to get him
to actually pose' for a photo...
opened Rusty Acres in 1973 on 2-1/2 acres of land with 25'
x 25' building, with only two employees (one of them being
Bob himself!). With a inventory of about 200 vehicles to
sell parts from and scrap out...
those early days, Bob and staff had no delivery service
available to the public and sales were limited to just those
over the counter.
1984 Rusty Acres began to specialize in Ford, Lincoln and
Mercury products only.
1986 Rusty Acres began using computers in order to be able
to keep track of their own inventory and to be able to locate
and sell parts from other yards as well.
1988 Bob had a new building built (10,000 sq. ft.)
1998 he expanded his dismantling area to help improve quality
and inventory control.
Acres now encompasses 5 acres of ground with over 15,000
sq. ft. of storage (warehouse) and work areas.
Employees are now in place to handle the large volume of
parts and the inventory of about 600 vehicles.

parts. We have thousands of clean, inventoried, tagged,
and bar-coded parts on hand.
(We are likely the only yard in Jacksonville
and the surrounding area, that now uses bar-coding.)
Acres now delivers all over the N. Fla. and S. Ga. area
utilizing up to 4 delivery trucks. We also ship across the
US as well as ship worldwide.
