whats compatible from a Courier(build date 7-75)?

Hello all,
Well today on my way home from a job on Cape Cod i noticed what looked to be a old junk yard that I had never seen before,so i dropped in and asked if I could look around.This guy had all sorts of old stuff like old datsuns trucks that looked like cars with beds to a whold lot of Chevy LUV's.In the far corner i found a old courier that seemed pretty complete.It was pretty rusted out but all in all it looked like it hadn't been picked over too bad.I instantly looked for the dome light i need but to my dismay it was already gone.My question is.What is compatible from these trucks to my 74 REPU?What would be worth grabing?I noticed the glass was all there and the engine appeared to be complete.It even had a parcel shelf which mine lacks due to factory air conditioning.Thanks in advance.I'm guessing this truck won't be going anyplace soon but I would like to get anything that is worth grabbing before it gets damaged by some fool.

All depends...

...on how hard up for certain parts you might get, and whether or not keeping your REPU 100% mazda is important to you. Doors and door panels, and glass oughta be identical. Front spindles, etc, are close--but lack the holder for the rubber ring for the wheel centers... Back bumper? You get the idea... Good for some things, but...

Some hard to get things like window mechanisms. Maybe the sorry steering gearbox?
The old Courier was a Mazda, except the pollution controls. Big joke was that the same piston engine in the Mazda version met tighter pollution standards and made a couple more HP.
