1972 Ford Other
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 four cylinder engine, a four 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, 00 when introduced -- close to the price of an F-100. When it was introduced it came standard with a 1.8 liter overhead cam engine, which produced 74HP at 5000rpm, and 92ftlbs at 3500rpm. A 4 speed manual transmission was standard. The body styling, especially the front grill, was designed to reflect the styling of the F-series lineup of the time, so it obviously looked like a little Ford Truck. The 1.8 liter (109.6 cu in) overhead cam engine produced 74 horsepower at 5, 00rpm, and 92 ft-lbs of torque at 3, 00rpm. It was a long stroke engine (3.07" bore x 3.7" stroke) with a chain driven cam shaft. It was coupled to a 4 speed manual transmission. For the first 5 years, this was all that was available. The styling of the Courier's grill was designed to reflect the design of the F-series pickups of the time. Note the similarities to the 1973 F-100 pictured to the right. This is an excellent condition older restoration ARIZONA Courier with only 92, 00 miles. ZERO Rust. Still comes with her original drive train. She is all serviced and ready to show.
