post up your Ford Courier models

Recommended Posts

Jon- Revell did a first-gen Courier, but it was custom. You'd need to do some scratchbuilding, but making a first-gen Courier model would be workable.

It does!

I was reffering to the Korean-built, US-market Fiesta though. ;)

Or was it Festiva...?

I know, that is why I said 'kinda'. I believe you just got the first gen US-Fiesta, and before that it was that Ford/Mazda/Kia compact. But over here we had the fiesta already a long, long time.

If you look through the Ford-line, usually the EU and US products differ big, but they now starting with more global-cars, like the new fiesta and the focus.

In my stalled projects I have a Courier model that I dropped with large custom wheels, very custom mini style. The interesting part of it is that I am swapping in the V6 from a Taurus SHO.

Nice collection of Couriers here !

I'd LOVE to see Round2 release a sweet multi-options 'reissue' of the forelorn AMT Courier ; fleetside and stepside beds ; stock 4 cylinder (with hop-up parts) , V6 and V8 options ; stock tyres / wheels , and custom , period-correct wheels / tyres ; just building options galore !

I had an 81 Courier. It was a great little truck. The guy I sold it to had the body rust away long before the mechanical parts gave out. I'm really enjoying seeing these builds. Someday I want to build a replica of mine but will have to stretch the wheelbase and bed as mine was a longbed truck.

The Revell Fun Truckin Courier looks pretty close to that LUV. Has the chopped top and the fenders on the bed look like those (side note: Revell used the same fenders in the Courier, Datsun pickup and 75 C10).

Mmmm , the memories , I'll have to dig up the photo's of my Courier ('82 model or so from memory) styleside with fiberglass canopy on the back , false floor in the rear with double mattress on top . Among other places it took me on a Central Australia trip 13 or so years ago , very good touring wagon (only 2wd) and went well on dirt and rough stuff .
