Tony's in Haverhill MA had quite a few Gen1 and 2's when I was there last fall, didnt check for any special options but got a like new gas tank, front and rear struts, front hub, rear front to rear axle location bars, etc. Did a major overhaul on the 92 Taurus and 95 Sable. It seems that Murphy strikes just after owners installed those parts!
The problem in this area is that most yards cleaned out most older stuff when the scrap prices were way up, vehicles earlier than the 90's are almost all gone.

Lin Cont Cable set, nice condition. $10.
Will replace my '03 Sable, bought used last summer, cables corroded but not very good even after cleaning. Direct interchange, but 2 wire sizes heavier, ~60% more capacity.

Chance of finding good cable set, any car, slim. Lucked out this time.

V8 at Va Beach Pick n Pull

I didn't look too closely, but the first car on one of the rows there today was a V8 Taurus. I'd never gotten a good look at one before, but didn't have time to gawk today. Thought I'd pass the info along in case anyone was interested.

Just checked, they are different.
Mach have a block inductor in the line. That in theory lowers the response on high freq while the tweeters have a cap in line to increase response in higher ranges. I looked at the JY today. First glance no difference, but then I noted the difference in the door 6X8.

For the record.

I did not check the rears but that is not my concern.

Finding a good car has been something else. Months since anything showed up. But I was looking for the autolamp dash module. I figure half and half good at the JY. Two cars with modules, $2 per, got both. Easy pull.

Yup, you're right Chart.
The rears are the same but the front are different because of the addition of the tweeters.
