1974 to 1977


The Ford Courier never had a rotary engine, it was a Mazda B series pickup, even though Mazda built the Courier for Ford the B series Rotary had body designs that set it apart from looking like a Courier. The problems with the Rotary of that time was: 1 horrible fuel mileage, 2 poor low end performance, 3 durability of the engine. The few that I have seem lately have been modified with 13B fuel injected Rotaries and I saw 1 with a turbo Rotary motor. Those trucks looked brand new and were in a car show so not a daily driver. Good luck in your search.
