Contour/Focus mix and match

I saw a Contour SVT in a local junk yard recently. It doesnt appear to be smacked from what I could see of it. Does any good stuff from the Contour swap over to the Focus. Wheels are scrapped already.

Not much, the cars are different in almost anything, SVT Contour is a six cylinder.

The Contour SVT wheels look good on a Focus

I think that the seats will work IIRC.

But if they've been exposed to the elements, I would not use them myself.
