I finally got my National Parts Depot (NPD) 1964-1972 GTO, Tempest, Le Mans parts catalog in the mail yesterday! It is exciting to finally have a local (somewhat) alternative to my GTO parts shopping needs. The catalog features over 5000 parts specific to Pontiac GTO/Le Mans/Tempest muscle cars and includes 189 pages of glorious, full color, glossy photos.
According to NPD, their four warehouses are fully stocked and overflowing with GTO (and other) parts, enabling them to deliver your GTO parts faster than other competitors. You can expect delivery of your GTO parts within 1-3 days of placing your order. 98% of orders are in stock and shipped the same day.
At first browse, I was happy to see that they offer concours quality alternatives for the serious restorers, like the seat upholstery from Legendary Auto Interiors (page 6) that feature the "pinch" pleats like the original factory design. I've found that most other suppliers only offer the cheaper, non-original alternative. NPD offers both.
Check out the audio interview from themusclecarplace.com with Kirk Hansen from NPD's marketing department. He talks about putting the new catalog together and what NPD has to offer.
Of course, commerce is moving to the Internet now and so everything offered in the new NPD 1964-1972 GTO parts catalog is also available online, including the seat upholstery from Legendary Auto Interiors.
I'll be shopping at NPD for sure so look for an update to my blog post on the best places to find OEM and Replacement GTO parts.
