HELP! 1981 Ford Courier Interior Parts
29 January 2010 | menemenetekelupharsin

Posted on 01/29/2010 5:09:17 AM PST by MeneMeneTekelUpharsin

Fellow Freepers...please help. Can someone direct me to a source (internet or junkyard) where I can find some interior parts for a 1981 Ford Courier pickup to help out a very good friend. I don't make these kinds of requests, so please consider that. Need the armrests for both doors and the under handle plastic trim specifically and perhaps some other items.


TOPICS: Hobbies
KEYWORDS: fordcourier; parts
Thanks in advance to whomever can help. Please PM me here on Free Republic.

You’ll have better luck finding spare parts for the batmobile.

These were basically rebadged Mazda trucks. Likely the parts are compatible, if perhaps a variant color.

Also try Mazda B2000. It’s the same vehicle and the interior parts might be the same as the Ford version.

Some certainly were. My dad and I had nearly identical ones but his had a Mazda engine and mine was Ford.

I second this. I have used it to find a plethora of parts to restore my 1972 VW SuperBeetle.

That is VERY strange. My friend just traded her 81 Courier for a CRX. Ran ok too, somewhere outside of Boise.

Was yours a diesel? IIRC, that was the difference.

Although, there was much shared then. Is it possible you and your Dad had the same motor, with different heads?

(Sidenote) My 1993 Ranger was sold as a Mazda, but in that case it was Mazda selling a Ford product, not the other way around.

It wasn’t a diesel but it is entirely possible they were the same engine with different heads.

There is a huge place in Christiansburg, Va where I bought some parts for my car.

Have you tried LMC Truck? Many of the interior parts for the Suburbans will interchange with the C/K trucks of the same year.

As recommended above, LMC is awesome. You can get catalogs for specific years and makes. Another classic truck/car supplier is Northern Auto Parts naparts.com. My son has a hotrod 1984 GMC 4x4 we just rebuilt. You can find parts for just about anything if your willing to pay the price.
