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).[8] 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 Brazil.[8] 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 Pick-up (Budget Restoration)
SHE WAS SOLD so I'm no longer the owner but I'll leave the video up to gloat or inspire others :-) If you have any questions I'll do my best to respond in a timely manner. 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 few things... 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.
