You're gonna have a tough time finding a 1982 Courier, because...there is no such thing.

The Courier was canceled at the end of the 1981 model run. Replaced by the 1983 Ranger that was introduced in March 1982.

There is no such thing as factory installed Integral A/C for any Courier. All the Ford A/C units were dealer installed, all were "hang-on's" (bolted to the bottom of the dash).

All the specific to Courier body parts are obsolete, and can be very hard to find.

You prolly know this, but some others might not: 1972/81 Courier pickups are rebadged Mazda's.

There were 82MY Couriers. They were a bit different in that this was the only one to have the key on the column instead of in the dash, and the only one that had a two piece steering shaft- All the rest had a continuous shaft from the steering wheel hub to the worm gear in the steering box. 77-82 were basically the same body style, but 77 had it's own grille with turn signals in the bumper. It was also the only second generation Courier available with the 1.8, the 78-82 had the 2.0 Mazda engine or the 2.3 Ford.
To find one, or for info, check out http://fordcouriercollector.com/ I'm on there as 4x4_Welder.
Body parts are easy to find thanks to a large worldwide aftermarket support. Windshields are expensive, but fenders are about $120 apiece, new repro grilles are available, etc.
