FEATURE INTERVIEW

This week I interviewed Kirk Hansen, marketing and catalog layout guru from National Parts Depot. Since NPD came aboard the show as a sponsor (our very first, in fact) Kirk and I have become good friends, so this interview was a treat to do!

For the last few months I have been telling you that NPD has been planning “more lines on the way” in the way of restoration parts, and now in this interview Kirk revealed that a whole new Pontiac line of parts is coming January 1st, 2013! The full color catalog encompasses 1964 through 1972 GTO, Tempest, and LeMans vehicles. It is packed full of over 7400 parts with over 5000 new parts specific to GTO / Tempest / LeMans alone.

It took a considerable about of research to put this new book together as NPD prides themselves on completeness and authenticity.

The parts in NPD catalogs are actually referenced to original equipment manufacturers catalogs instead of just interchange manuals for the utmost accuracy.

For this catalog specifically they now have two whole lines of interior parts, from a normal restoration quality line up to a concours line for the top level project cars.

He also mentioned that the interior section of the new catalog is full of charts and examples to get you the most information for your purchase decisions. You can check out the new catalog online at WWW.NPDLINK.COM

Kirk also revealed a fun little nugget at the end of our interview in that NPD will soon be offering a full line of Mopar parts for the A, B, and E body cars! NPD acquired Harden’s Muscle Car World a while back, and as the transition moves forward Mopar parts will begin to appear on NPD’s main website. Stay tuned there for more updates.

Thanks for the interview, Kirk, and thanks to NPD for supporting our show!
