Ford Courier Drag Truck
check out this 572 2000 hp 1978 ford courier pro mod pickup on the 1/8
mile at barona drag strip as he makes a complete pass.
In 1977 the Courier was redesigned, and a host of new options was
available. The truck was available with front disc brakes, as well as a
Ford built 2.3 liter engine option (which was the same as that of the Ford
Pinto and Mustang II). The
key identifying feature of the Courier from Mazda's B-Series was still the
singular headlights, although with park and indicator lights placed inset
starting in '78 ('77s still had the turn signal lights in the bumper).
In 1979 the base model engine was increased in size to 2.0 liters (120.1
CID). The optional Ford 2.3 L (~140 cu in) engine was produced in
The Courier was never available with a diesel engine in the US. However,
the 1980 Mazda B2200 was available with the S2, a Perkins-built 4.135 (4
cylinder, 135 CID) 2.2 liter diesel engine, producing 66 hp (49 kW) at
2,100 rpm. This same diesel engine was available in the 1983 and 1984 Ford
Ranger, however it was replaced by the Mitsubishi 4D55T 2.3 liter turbo Diesel (also used in Mitsubishi's own Mighty

1974 Ford Courier Pickup AKA "Lucy"
From the start my goal was more to make it a safe road runner than to win
any beauty contest. I worked within considerable budget constraints but I
never sacrificed on the quality of mechanical parts I used. The vast
majority of work was done completely by myself, learning quite a bit along
the way. The video mentions much of the work I've done but I did forget a
Truck was originally Yellow, but more mustard yellow than the yellow you
see here. I removed all body rust and paint (3 different LEADED color
layers) and invested a small fortune into Rustoleum Solar Yellow Enamel
spray paint. In addition to painting I had to create and weld-in a new cab
floorpan. I also discovered the cab had a holes in the center of the
roofline. In addition to repairing all leaky body panels I completely sound
insulated the cabin with Dynomat-like material. I
relocated the seat belts so that the truck down has retractable shoulder
straps (lap-belt was stock). The single dash speaker was replaced with 2
door and 2 rear cab 3-way speakers. Stock radio isn't functional but the
JVC HD-Radio/CD/MP3 w/remote is. The 3 of the 4 tires are actually
fiberglass radial white-walls that are quite old (4th is steel radial) but
still in very good shape. The spare tire rim (underneath, not visible) is
the original spare (still good shape) and the spare tire rim has been
refurbished to match the other steel wheels. When I replaced all brake
shoes I also replaced all brake cylinders (8 total), master cylinder, and
several brake lines. I also added an aftermarket coolant reservoir tank,
while relocating the windshield-wiper washer tank. The water pump,
thermostat, and radiator also have been replaced. The gas tank has been
re-sealed with POR-15 and fuel pump has been replaced. Gas tank floater has
been replaced with a refurbish part.
She's far from perfect, but she on her way.

The Sound of 1424HP
Car Craft Nationals 2009. July 17th,18th,19th. St. Paul, MN
Ford Thunderbird, All-Aluminum 572, F3 Pro-Charger. The car actually makes
over 1700HP to the wheels but the day before the owner discovered one(of
two) blow-off valves was cracked at the based where it was welded to the
piping. They fixed it right quick by placing the Car Craft license plate
givin' to them from entering in the show and wrapped a slab of thick rubber
around the license plate and tied it all down with 3 hose clamps. This car
won the Mobil 1 Dyno
Challenge for the weekend with this pull.

Crankin' up the old 1982 Ford Courier - Part 1
Joe-Joe helps me crank up the courier. I remember when this truck was brand
new.. It wasn't that long ago I depended on it as daily transportation,
then the clutch went out. It has had a rough life on the farm over the
years, but I still think enough of it to crank it up ever so often and make
sure it still runs.

So I mounted up a hidden GoPro camera and took my mom for her first ride in
