Another post in the OT section got me wondering. So how many different car makes/models have you used parts from to build your FFR? Thought this might help others, as well as me, with ideas. Here's my list:

’87 Mustang (many parts)
’86 Taurus (headlight switch)
'91 Chev Sprint (brake booster)
'97 Ford Aspire (heater cores)
'80-'87 Crown Vic (brake booster)
’95 Cavalier (heater fan switches)
Aerostars (axles)
’90 Integra (misc bolts, nuts, clips, etc.)
LTD (wiring connector for dash)
’87 Merkur XR4Ti (seat heater switches - planning stage)
Ford Probe (flasher/dimmer switch)
'94-'96 Ford Escort/Mercury Tracer,'89 Ford Probe (flasher/hazard module)
Honda/Acura (heater coolant control valve - any year)
'02 Mustang (rear brake anti-moan brackets)

Pile on!

Cheers, Rod

Interesting question. Here's my list, there are some parts on the car that I have no idea where they came from.

87-93 Mustang (Donor)
74 Dodge Aspen (Alternator Arm)
74 Int. Scout (Heater Valve)
65 Int. PU (Choke Cable)
63 Corvette (Puke Tank)
74 Ford Van (Oil Breather Cap)
Fiero (E brake)
1990 Volvo (Oil Cooler)
1998 Explorer (Engine)
1974 Camaro (Carb)
1987 Sea Ray (Fuse Panel)

I am sure that there are more, I will have to go out and look at the car.

My car is non donor so these parts were used and cleaned:

'94 Mustang (front spindles and brakes)
'88 Turbocoupe (rear axle and brakes)
'88 Mustang (fuel tank cover, pedal box, and Ebrake)
'69 Corvette (engine block)
'89 Corvette (transmission)
'?? Aerostar (axles)
'89 Miata (seats)

These parts were new but interesting:

'72 Corvette (master cylinder)
'86 Camaro (B&M ratchet shifter)
'70's era Ferrari (carpet - OEM European loomed)

I'm sure there's more.. :D

That's one to get me thinking. I don't have many...

88 Mustang GT (donor)
96 Explorer (engine)
I don't think I have any others in the car yet, but I do have an 89 Integra hatch wiper system waiting to go in.....

The honda/acura heater valve also caught my attention as I'm stripping a Honda right now and have that part....I guess I should keep it for one of you guys with a heater, eh? Or maybe another project for myself....

Dave I'm a freak too! 100% 1992 LX donor parts plus a $9,900 MK I FFR COBRA kit.

I love the (NON-DONOR) builds that actually have donor parts from everything that ever went down the road.
