Description

The Thunderbird Stocker was based on the 1983 Ford production model as designed for NASCAR racing. It is not to be confused with the T-Bird Stocker, a later casting which was first released in 1990, and was based on the 1990 Ford Thunderbird body style. This casting was released later as the Velocitor. and often confused with the T-Bird Stocker casting but the two castings are very different. This confusion can be traced back to the original Mike Struass guide.

The Thunderbird Stocker, features the number 21 on both sides and Valvoline as its primary sponsor.

The Velocitor was based on the 1983 Ford Thunderbird modified for NASCAR racing. It is not to be confused with the T-Bird Stocker, a casting first released in 1990, based on the 1990 Ford Thunderbird body style. The Velocitor was released earlier as the Thunderburner and Thunderbird Stocker. It is often confused with the T-Bird Stocker casting but the two castings are very different. This confusion can be traced back to the Year 2000 Tomart's price guide by Mike Strauss.
