Robin’s Egg Bluety: 1980 Ford Courier Truck
The baby blue Volvo we posed earlier today was a bit of a wreck, so I think we need to redeem robin’s egg blue cars with something equally vintage, but in nicer shape. The Ford Courier was a compact pickup truck that was produced from 1952 to 1982, and this 1980 model is a prime example of why they don’t make them like they used to. It comes with a manual transmission and is powered by a Pinto 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine that still runs like a champ. Bonus points for a vintage camper shell that’s been with the car since new. Find this 1980 Ford Courier Truck offered for $6,900 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.

Can we go all the way and have our third, almost robin’s egg blue car of the day?
Lets go even farther……..a fourth and guaranteed to undermine the DT ethos……….
This in a Mazda jumpsuit painted brown was what my dad taught me to drive in. I was embarrassed having him drop me off at school, but looking back, what a great little truck. Reliable, sturdy and slow enough for a teenager to learn to drive stick.
This should go in a museum as “cars people actually drove back in the day”. Stick shift, vinyl interior, camper top.. there were a ton of these around, in one form or another, back then. Looks positively archaic now. Precambrian.
This truck is awesome!
A CB radio! Call yerself “Minnow” and start insulting 18 wheelers and stay out of the slow lane! Its looks perfect to me. I’m thinking of all the reasons NOT to call the seller cause I gotta an itch………..
