This is a 1978 Courier 2.3 Litre long box with a 5-speed transmission.
It has 160,000 miles on it but has yet to have any major work of any
kind. A Ford re-build of the rear axel was done at 10,000 miles, the
waterpump replaced at 100,000 and brakes have been the major items. It
still has the original exhaust system on it. Exceptional care including
at times excessive maintenance has kept it looking and running like new
(well almost - it does burn more oil than it did when new). No body work
other than painting the rear bumper has been done. There have been few
modifications to it. The box cap, a second gas tank in the box, alloy
wheels, a hood vent and relays for the halogen headlights have been the
major changes. The biggest complaint I have is that it has a lot less
than adequate power.
