The final year for NHRA's "Junior Stock", as based on Production-line-ready vehicles, was 1971. Since then, all manner of additions/deletions/substitutions have occurred to the point that "Stock" today...isn't. Hard to ignore 40 years of "improvements" and "engineering"...both in "combinations" AND equipment. Tires, for instance, are 'way beyond what was formerly available, and that's the major reason you see "FAST" and "Pure Stock" cars running as low as 9s on "bias-belted" stock-appearing tires, these days.

You used to be able to go Stock racing for lunch-money. Now, you need an 18-wheeler and a $50K engine just to be "close"...

Different cars, different times, different results...but that would be fodder for a whole 'nother thread...
