Where can I find a Ford Bantam or Mazda Rustler Bakkie to download for Need For Speed High Stakes?

The Ford bantam & Mazda Rustler's do exist here in South Africa. If they are not available in the NFS Community, I will most likely make the 2002 model Ford Bantam Bakkie my next project & scratch build the body.

Here is a pic of the 2003 Ford Bantam XLE, but I prefer the 2002 model as shown above & will base my next project on that model.

I'm originally from Zimbabwe, and there is such a thing as a Mazda Rustler. I learnt to drive in one.
@kingbacoza - Where about in SA are you?
What about a Mazda B1600 later on? Or a Hilux 2.4D?
Bringing back some good memories lol. Good luck with making them.

@ FCDesigns2002: Durban, South Africa
@ DJC: I can't find one to download either. Arman has a Ford Escort XR3i on the ND4SPDWorld website for NFS4hs. This has the same front end as the 2002 Ford Bantam so could possibly be used as a base, but all my cars thus far have been from bits & pieces of other cars, so I've decided that I will make an attempt to make a scratch body and then see where that takes me...
Attached a pic of a Ford Bantam from Durban South Africa. I think the driver is a member of Team Poison (www.teampoison.co.za) but I don't think the car can be found on the site.

Looks like it would make a pretty cool car to build (I can say for sure that there are none of those models in the NFS3 section). I've always wanted an old Chevy el Camino so, having this car would be a nice trad-off

The following are pics of the Mazda Rustler. As can be seen, there is visually no difference between the Ford Bantam & Mazda Rustler bakkies. The bakkie on the left is from Johannesburg in South Africa and has a 2.0L 16V EGI motor with a Turbo. It can be seen for sale on the www.autotrader.co.za website. This site has many pics of the Ford Bantam & Mazda Rustler Bakkies. I don't seem to be able to find decent side, front & back pics of a 2002 model anywhere on the NET for my CAR00.TGA file so I'll have to take the photographs myself.

I started building the Ford Bantam Bakkie for NFS4HS 2003/11/28. I've almost completed the Driver's door (88 Polys & 77 Vertices). I've attached pics of the work I've done so far.

We used to have Ford Couriers over here in the States in the '70s. Here's a pic of one:

@ Organic Zero & Suterb: We also have the Ford Courier bakkies in South Africa. These are bigger than the Ford Bantam & more of a commercial type vehicle whereas the Ford Bantam is basically the same size as a sedan. When they were originally introduced, they would have had specs identical to the Ford Escort XR3 as they are basically a Ford Escort front end with a rear Bakkie Section. In South Africa the Ford Bantam's are very popular when it comes to modifications (body kits & performance) whereas it is almost unheard of finding someone modifying a Ford Courier. NB: Future updates on the Ford Bantam that I am building will be done via the Editing Forum.
