Ironically, it's the "Jump or stunt car" that we see the most of in the movie. It's the car that was banging down the hills, cutting the corners, bashing the Charger. It was the car speeding through the canyon at full song with the GT 40 sound track dubbed in. Yet, it was the car thrown away.
The Hero car got the close up shots, but those frames are a small part of the movie. Is this an indictment of either one? Nope. Just analysis of the two. There is no choice on restoring the Jump car, it was mostly rust, it could have been left to finish evaporating into dust, but isn't. The Hero car is mostly original, and would probably be totally original except that an accidental bump bruised the front and necessitated repairs. Otherwise, I'm sure it would look similar to the back end of the car. Lightly corroded. Body rust through and filler exposed, it's still a piece of history. Leave it alone. It's been messed with enough already.
