Question about 1990 Ford F150
It might be true, but depends on which bit we're talking about.
If it's just the ignition switch assembly then I'd be very surprised as many other Fords used them and manufacturers will continue to make the spares as long as there's sufficient demand. If it's the steering column lock assembly then it's more likely to be unavailable new, but there were so many F150's made that a NOS (new, old stock) part should still be readily available. I live in London, England and can still easily get almost all original parts for a '59 T-Bird: a car which was never officially sold over here.
Despite all that there are thousands of F150's in wrecking yards (Europe and Asia excepted) which can provide spare parts and if it is just the switch then any half-competent car mechanic can fit an after market push button starter (key goes in the ignition to unlock the steering and is turned to engine on position, then you press the starter button instead of turning the key further to start).
I think you need to find another guy who isn't talking out of his rectum...

You can get an ignition switch. Mayby not made by Ford, but an aftermarket.
