I’ve own this little guy for over 33 years. I bought it in 1980 from a Ford dealer. I was looking for something that would give me good gas mileage. I traded a 1969 F100 that would only get 8 miles to the gallon. My Courier has serve me well. My parents give me a 1941 Ford Club Coup when I was in High School. I’ve own a Ford all my driving years. I even own a 1962 English Ford for a second car to drive me to my job. so I guess you could say I have Ford in my blood. My Courier is fun to drive. It took me to and from my job for over 19 years. I don’t really need it any more since I retired. But there is no way I would part with it. It has set in my garage next to a 77 LTD, 83 Crown Vick, 96 Crown Vick and 2002 Crown Vick. My little Courier looks as good as the day I bought it. I live in Arizona and my Courier has Air Condition that gets as cold as it’s big brother 02 Crown Vick. It has over 257,000 miles on it and still going strong.
