Neighborhood Outtake: Ford Courier

Just a few blocks from the Zap truck was something a bit more conventional, a Ford Courier. Everyone knows that these were of course rebadged Mazdas, although the later versions of the Courier like this one did offer the Ford 2.3 L four as an option.

This is a long bed version, which makes it a pretty handy truck to have a round. And there are still a few of these around, as they’re tough, simple, and easy to fix. And obviously, wheels from other vehicles fit readily.

A more thorough look at the Courier and its history is here.
