Straight from the 2013 SEMA Show - National Parts Depot

Straight from the 2013 SEMA Show



This is one of the biggest weeks in the auto industry: the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show. Every year thousands of auto industry insiders flock to Las Vegas....



....to see the wrappers peeled off the newest parts the aftermarket will bring to market. New and unusual vehicles are unveiled, concepts become reality, and several long-term projects roll into their assigned spots, many getting their finishing touches mere moments before getting revealed. This year’s SEMA Show holds a special place for us at National Parts Depot, as we supplied parts for two project vehicles.



The first is from The Muscle Car Place / Robert Kibbe in the form of a 1964 Chevelle, a car purchased new by Kibbe's mother in 1964. The above rendering was the vision Kibbe had for his 1st year A-body; did he meet his goals? Check out the results in the video below (or click HERE to open the video in YouTube).

The second 2013 SEMA Show build NPD became a part of is Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine’s 25th Anniversary project, a 1988 Mustang dubbed Hypersilver. The magazine’s technical editor Marc Christ spearheaded this build, tasked with creating a Fox-body Mustang that would stand apart while carrying cues from the past 25 years. Did they succeed? Decide for yourself in the video below (or click HERE to open the video in YouTube).



Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords turned to NPD for this list of parts for Hypersilver (click to view).


Both cars have great stories, and we’re proud to be included in the builds!
