Contract actions always depend on the facts. If there is no time of performance provided for, and the parties are still able to perform it then it may still be enforceable. Otherwise, the doctrine of impossibility of performance may apply, and the contract would be deemed void. It would be a very fact intensive consideration. If the contract was blocked by the Cuban embargo 50+ years ago, my gut says it would be void now.
