I think the problem with Ford is that he was dopey. In the book he's far from dopey. The character is supposed to know what's going on, how to survive as a hitchhiker and just happen to have a pile of quirks. So, yes, he was a little off. I think it would have worked better were he British, to play on the audience's stereotypes. We generally view British people as more competent than Americans.
