1979 Hot Wheels Torino Stocker

The Hot Wheels Torino Stocker, based on the third generation (1972-1976) Ford Torino, made its debut in the 1975 Flying Colors and was produced in about 18 variations up until 1986. It was retooled in 2012 and made 3 more appearances as ’73 Ford Gran Torino.

This black model with blackwalls – one of the 10 cars my buddy, Chris, recently found for me on the St. Louis area Facebook Marketplace – fills one of the few remaining holes in my collection of 1979 Hot Wheels.

In my collection I also have a sadly worn example of the white Thrill Drivers Torino from 1977 and another black version with gold Hot Ones from 1982.
