stuff worth taking from a first gen tercel?

I noticed that there are not one but TWO 1982 tercels at my local pick and pull. ... G1C4430526 ... D4C3395088

Are there any goodies worth taking? I was thinking about the valve cover, as the early ones had TOYOTA in raised font.

the whole engine is a direct drop in for the T4wd. if either have the 5 speed trans, those are worth getting for parts, many of the 5 speed trans parts are common to the T4wd manual trans. Form member Xirdneh can use the trans parts to use to rebuilt the 4wd trans (or anyone else that wants to give it a try).

I do not think there is much else interchangeable between first and second gen Tercel. Perhaps some interior trim parts like the sun visors, interior rear view mirror, etc.
