Paul, we have a full-service counter and an enormous in-stock inventory here in Ocala. The building is 360,000 sq feet, and it's full. We don't have a way for you to order online, and have it set-aside for pick-up. So call the Florida store direct once you're ready, 1-800-874-7595. If you are buying a sizable amount of truck-freight items, it will indeed save you money to come take it over the counter, and you'll get to see/inspect what you're buying prior to paying for it.
I do have a quick question for you, Rick. As I'm looking at parts and notice that some of the parts (e.g., quarter panels) require truck shipping, I was wondering if it may be a smarter option for me to just drive over to Ocala and pick up the parts to save on the freight / shipping cost. Ocala is about an 8 hr drive from me in Slidell, LA.
I'm a bit away from being ready to order the parts; but was wondering. Does NPD allow phone in or internet orders where I could have the parts pre-pulled and waiting for me to pick up at the Ocala location?
One of the reasons I was thinking of this is that I could do this while taking a weekend trip to the area anyway (camping).
Your replies in the "price matching" thread were excellent. I'm fairly new to any serious restoration since I haven't ordered restoration parts in any significant quantity over the years; however, you've given me a very healthy respect for NPD and your business model.
I'm certain that I will be using you as one of my primary sources during the restorations of my '66 and my '72.
I need to order some pinch-on windlace for a '67 I'm working on. I saw in the catalog that NPD sells it by the foot, and that you're supposed to enter the length you want when you place the order. I tried doing this online, but never could get it to work on the NPD website. When doing a web order, where are you supposed to specify the length?
I purchased thetop of the line woodgrain steering wheel from NPD. In assemblying the wheel, I do not understand how the plastic pieces are supposed to be installed per a Ford parts pic. From what I see looking at the plastic pieces 6 ea, 3 fit onto the inner ring prons and 3 ea. fit on the outter ring prongs. The Ford parts drawing, makes it look like the plastic pieces do not fit onto the prongs, but fit against the prongs. Which is correct? I am having a tough time getting the proper spacing between the 2 rings so my horn is not blowing all the time.
