From 1952 to 1960, Ford applied the Courier nameplate to its sedan delivery bodystyle. Intended as a commercial vehicle (serving as the forerunner of the modern-day cargo van); Ford also offered a similar configuration derived from the F-Series pickup truck named the panel delivery.
Sharing its body with two-door Ford station wagons, the Courier was designed with a large storage area behind the front seats, replacing the rear seating area and rear side windows (replaced by painted steel panels).
Marketed exclusively as a two-door vehicle, the Courier was initially designed with a side-hinged rear cargo access door (unique to the model line). For 1957 and 1958, the Courier adopted the two-piece “clamshell” design shared by the two-door Ford Parklane and Ford Del Rio station wagons, sharing their body design (without rear side glass).
For 1959, to lower production costs of the model line, the Courier took on the body of the two-door Ford Ranch Wagon in its entirety, distinguished only by its rear cargo area.
After the 1960 model year, Ford retired both the Courier sedan delivery and the F-Series panel delivery, replacing both model lines with the Ford Econoline cargo van for 1961; the two-door sedan delivery body style was moved to the compact Ford Falcon model range and offered through 1964
