I never thought you would actually buy another Ford Courier. Is that squash color or pumpkin color? So... have you located the gold nugget rims yet?

John

 toothy10 I revised my signature here.  No longer looking for the Courier, but I still need the wheels.  I saw a set that were in perfect condition and were even 6-lug like I need, but I didn't buy them at the time and he won't respond to my emails now.   sad11

I have heard many names for the color already, but squash/pumpkin is a new one! 

I've seen it called mustard, butterscotch, and what I think may be the official Ford name, sunflower orange.

It will be more like Sasquash soon enough!

Now that you've actually got the Courier... I'll triple my efforts in the search for gold nugget rims. 80's style of course! laughing7

 laughing5 laughing5 laughing5  Sasquash!  Classic!  There were some of these 1st generation Couriers that were converted to 4 wheel drive by an aftermarket company way back in the 70's.  The company that converted them re-named them "Sasquatch"

Sasquash it is!   blob10

I was reading the old ad you posted, classic! There is just one problem. To the best of my knowledge Dana never made a 30 t case or a 20 axle. They did make a 20 t case and a 30 axle..... Is it possible they made such a HUGE mistake in there ad? Would explain why they aren't around anymore. Still, cool to see how far we've come, huh?

Nice project Earl. I would have expected nothing less. The gold nug beadlocks in 17x9 are going to be hard to find I bet. Not that a sweet looking 73 courier was such an easy score. How on earth did you find it?

 laughing5  I hadn't noticed that they had the t-case and axle id's mixed up.  That's funnay!

I don't need the nuggets in 17-inch.  15x8 would be perfect.  I'd consider some 10's, but I'd prefer the 8's because they get about an inch wider when you put the DIY beadlocks on them.  Gotta be 6-lug too, Chevy/Toyota pattern.

I got the Courier on Ebay.  $355
It was up in Auburn though, so it cost me another $250 in gas to get it home.

Well worth it in my oppinion! I honestly don't remember the last time I saw a Ford Courier. I figured you'd have to be somewhere around Michigan or the middle of BFE to find one...

I vote for Sasquash too, but I hope you don't get sued. I certainly was not aware of that ad that I'm aware of. That's is crazy funny! I read through your build thread. It looks like you've got a decent amount of work area in that garage. What welder are you using? I hope to start practicing my welds a week from now. I'm hoping Bill has a few scrap body panels lying around for me to practice on.

My Dad will be in town off and on through the Holidays. I will find out if I need to get my Weapon's Carrier and trailer out of his garage. Hopefully he let's me keep it there. I doubt he'll try to sell the place with the current market conditions. I'm going to ask if I can stash my C-10 there for awhile too. It's time to get moving on some projects. And I mean it this time!

Awesome progress Earl... regardless if it gets gold nuggs or not.

Why would I get sued?  I doubt that company even still exists.  That flyer is from the 70's I think.  Anyway, I am going with Sasquash instead of Sasquatch.

I just have a Miller 130, 110V Mig that I bought used on Craigslist.  I'm not that good with it, but you've got to learn on something!

Dude, it's time to modify your signature again, unless you want a back up set of gold nugs.

I just got caught up on your project over at Rock Brawler. I have some POR-15 you could have used on that Yota frame (nice score by the way). The only suggestion I have is to get some rubber weather strip or edging so that you don't slice your fingers off when you add coolant to the radiator! laughing4

Should we move this thread to Hard Core 4x4's section or the Ford Section. Either way, we need to update the word Toyota to Fordota in the title!
