If you got a picure, just mail it to one of us. I had one, not sure of the year but it was sure a different one. Had a strong 289/C-4 in it. Sure surprised a lot of people with it. Mid 70's, check out the paint job that was the hot thing then.
Thanks for the insight. I found all the Toyo Kogyo badges in the engine bay. I researched it to find the Mazda connection. The truck is on its last leg, so I plan to rebuild it. My neighbor has a early '80s Toyota 4x4 with a broken frame. I'm going to try to use the engine and 4x4 system on my Courier! I decent with a torch and a MIG so anything is possible!
Smalltrucker.....that topper is priceless!

Reason: adding more info
1976-1977 (and possibly later) here in the midwest someone was taking the Courier and making a little panel/van out of it. They added a fiberglass topper and cut out the back of the cab and front of the topper and fiberglassed it together. Everything was carpeted and some had little (very little) benches and tables. Quite a few Ford dealers (and others) sold them. You know what eventually happens when you patch fiberglass to metal in any kind of structural manner so I can't imagne too many survive. They were done pretty well though and I will admit I was tempted but decided to stick with my Pinto wagon. Don't know why it sticks in my head but could have sworn the Courier was avalable up though 1980, same as the Pinto?
