Description

Lot #1502 - The Courier was manufactured by Toyo Kogyo (also known as Mazda), and imported and sold by Ford as a response to the unforeseen popularity of the small Toyota and Nissan/Datsun pickups among young buyers in the west. Like the other mini-pickups of the time, it featured a sub-2-liter 4-cylinder engine, a 4-speed manual transmission, rear-wheel drive, an impressive load capability considering its size and a fairly large price tag compared to full-size pickups of the time. The Ford Courier sold for $3,000 when introduced - close to the price of an F-100. It came standard with a 1.8-liter overhead cam engine, which produced 74hp at 5,000 rpm and 92 ft/lbs at 3,500rpm. A 4-speed manual transmission was standard. The body styling, especially the front grille, was designed to reflect the styling of the F-series lineup of the time, so it obviously looked like a little Ford truck. This is an excellent-condition older restoration Arizona Courier with only 94,000 original miles. Zero rust. Still comes with original drivetrain. All serviced and ready to show. Comes with dealer-installed air-conditioning unit.
