Many of you have been foaming at the mouth for the US return of the Ranger, but that’s not the only small truck in the history of the Blue Oval.

What you’re looking at here is a 1974 Ford Courier. It was built by Mazda and imported and sold by Ford as a competitor to small pickups from Toyota and Datsun.

This golden oldie has 86,000 miles on it. Despite its age, it seems to have a straight body, smooth paint, brightwork that’s in good shape, an uncracked dash pad, and a bench seat that was either lightly used or reupholstered in recent years.

The eBay seller, gracielatr01, doesn’t say much about its 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, but does say this Courier is a “super clean driver, well maintained and ready for car shows. Carmax offered 5500 so I set this up without a reserve at 7k.” If you absolutely have to have this lesser-known Ford, you can Buy It Now for $10,000.
