1973 Ford Courier

I love these Couriers. I had never seen one before I moved to the West Coast. The few that made it East had all rusted away. The port of entry for these was Seattle, which is why the Pacific NW has the highest concentration of Couriers. These were the Ford version of Mazda B1600's and used Mazda motors. Great payload, great gas mileage, tin can feel.... why don't they make useful trucks anymore?
