Funny you should mention that . I just watched the chase scene on you tube a couple nights ago, for the first time in about 30 years . What I find amazing is this chase scene went on for like 40 minutes and that Mustang got the holy hell beat out of it , and just kept going and going.
Several accidents happened that were not even planed like hitting the light pole at 100 miles an hour . From what I have read, only ONE stunt car was used for the entire chase . Ford motor company built 'em tuff in 1971 ( 73).

I'll have to watch it, thanks. Have only seen the 2000's remake, not the original.

I think that yellow fastback from the movie is a '73, actually. '73 had a one year only grille.

They used a 71 Mustang and changed some cosmetics to appear as a '73 .
Had they chosen "Susan" as the chase scene car instead , I just don't think we would have gotten 40 minutes out of her. Nothing short of amazing, the amount of abuse that car took .

Yes and it was badged an R/T as well.

Its a bit ironic I watched it again just two nights ago.

Loved the retag scenes, looks like moparts resto section :0)

Back in the day it was semi common not to drill the rivs but leave them intact and simply file them from the bottom then all looked perfectly untouched from the top.

And while we are on the subject ..what's up with this '71 "Road Runner" ?
At first glance it appears to be a Road Runner, with the birds head grille emblem and correct hood ..but notice what appears to be 71 GTX rocker molding , or possibly Satellite Sebring . And the deluxe door panels found only on the Satellite Sebring plus, and GTX in '71 . Hmmmm, very interesting .

Yes ! I was thinking the exact same thing . From reading recent posts here ...this is how 50 % of the Moparts members "restore" their cars.
Kind of scary

I watched the nicolas cage version a few years ago on cable and after Comercials they had the guys wife (that made the original) talking about how the original movie was made and how cheap it was made for the amount of vehicles that were crashed. He was the guy that drove the mustang, I believe he was killed while filming a movie. She also had something to do with getting the remake made.

He was killed while filming another movie, I forget the name. A cable was hooked by a vehical, or the cable broke. The cable was hooked to a tall pole, the pole fell on the guy. Halinic or some such name, I'll look it up.

Yep, you're right. Checked the wikipedia page and it mentions the grille swap. Looking closer it has the '71 running lights in addition to the '73 marker lights in the grille.

They apparently put a full rollcage in it, regardless the beating that poor car took is the worst I've ever seen and still have it run afterwards. I can't believe it's still a drivable car!!!!
