HI all, new to forum!

Doing my intial research into building an AC cobra Kit car. A great company in the US (Factory Five) uses Mustangs '94-as a donor car (to strip suspension, drivetrain etc off). I am looking everywhere to find out if FORD has a global parts bin/database where i can cross reference mustang parts and falcon parts against each other. A cheap falcon would be an excellent donor i think. The performance parts market would be excellent also.

Any leads or links would be greatly appreciated!

The dream is to have a car similar to this guy! : http://jr.stangnet.com/Cobra%20Images/W ... papers.htm
Check out the wallpapers!


Regards,
Richard

i think it's only the earlier, much earlier model falcons that are the same as mustangs in parts like the suspension and that. otherwise they'ld be a lot more off shelf bolt on mods for our falcooons.

falcon stuff would be basicly compatible (similar size / layout etc) but not an exact fit,

I know Joe has been using 330mm Mustang rotors as upgraded items for Falcons. Works out cheaper than Tickford rotors.
