More Details & Photos


1978 Ford Courier long bed. Project. No rust. 2nd owner. bought the truck in 2010 and cleaned it all up (Fiberglassed the floor, did all body work, mods and paint and fixed anything mechanically I could find wrong). I drove it daily for about 3 years. Then I sold the original 1.8 and transmission to do a swap. Everything in the truck worked when I stopped driving it. Then life happened. No time. Its been sitting with a non op registration since 2014. Front frame crossmember and engine mount brackets have been cut out to prep for the swap (still have the pieces that were cut). Truck is lowered via 1 cut coil in the front and a couple leaf springs removed in the back (I still have the removed leafs) with a 1″ block. Rides very nice. Factory power front disc brakes. Custom carpet dash cover with aluminum trim. Grant steering wheel with billet adapter. Also have original steering wheel that was redone in red and black, but is now cracking again. 15″ black steel wheels. New shocks. Cargo hooks on bed sides were shaved and relocated to inside of the bed. A few small scratches, but the body is perfectly straight. Newer radiator. Rear bed support has a removable center pipe to make loading things easier. Also have original tail gate (white with red writing). Custom aluminum door panels and kick panels.
