A bit of SR-71 Trivia - the only "off the shelf" component on the SR was the Engine. The engines were developed for a Navy Mach 2 fighter that never went into production. Aerospace Legend, Kelly Johnson knew there were a bunch of them sitting in a warehouse and grabbed them. Of course the Inlet Spikes were a development item which is the "magic sauce" for the SR's performance.
