Il y a tricherie sur la marchandise!! Ce n'a jamais été des feux arrières de T-Bird! De plus, il manque le feux de gabari entre le passage de roue avant et le pare-choc. Ceci-dit, la forme de la fenêtre arrière est tout à fait T-bird; la Ford LTD de 1975 y ressemble beaucoup. J'ai même un doute sur les feux arrières qui ne paraissent pas avoir tout à fait cette forme sur le LTD. Est-ce un délire de carrosier?.....

La photo de droite montre l'avant de la voiture, pas l'arrière (avec le truc pour cacher les phares quand ils sont éteints, c'est là-dessus qu'il y a le logo "Thunderbird")

Il s'agit bien d'une Thunderbird, probablement le modèle 1978.

Les commentaires ci-dessus étaient relatifs à l'ancienne image, qui montrait ces deux images ensemble, avec juste la partie contenant le logo "Thunderbird" de la 2e image:

Another Thunderbird that seems identical, but in a minor scene not linked to the 4-star car listed here:

Il s'agit d'une Thunderbird 1977, elle n'a pas les oiseaux sur les caches des phares, mais juste le mot Thunderbird. Les 78 ont les oiseaux et le mot Thunderbird, et les 79 ont une calandre différente.

This is a 1977 Thunderbird, there are no birds on the headlights covers, just the Thunderbird script. 1978 had the birds and the script, and 1979 had a different grille.

Pourquoi cette T-Bird se retrouve-t-elle les roues en l'air? Que s'est-il passé?

Why tis T-Bird ended up upside down? What happened to it?

After a crash, I guess... there is only that along the whole movie :D

And here's an interesting discovery; in the "making of featurette" this alternate angle of the Thunderbird going over the cliff is seen in a montage of outtakes - from the front it appears an LTD II has been used! They must have filmed it twice?

Yeah, I noticed that too. Maybe the actual crash was done with an LTD, as Halicki mustn't've wanted to wreck the actual Thunderbird. Although from the side, it doesn't look like it.

Something came to my mind: the audio commentary on the DVD says the inside shot of the Thunderbird turning over was actually an accident where Rita Rickard was driving and flipped the car over. It sort of looks like the scene where a similar car with three girls driving turns over in the film. (5th picture in antp's message)

That doesn't seem very likely, considering he wrecked at least two others (black and silver) plus Rita Rickard rolled one by accident. In the film it definitely appears to be the Thunderbird going over, but who knows... maybe he wanted it shot again for some reason and an LTD II was all that was available at that time.

These stills show that both a Thunderbird and LTD II were used for Blackbird's crash, with the scene apparently being filmed twice. Halicki must not have been able to get one of the spare Thunderbirds up to Paso Robles for the second attempt.

THE JUNKMAN TRIVIA!

The Thunderbird had once rolled over by accident. The inside camera footage of that rollover was included as the interior shot of the scene where the T-Bird goes over the cliff. Also, for that scene, an LTD II was used instead of the Thunderbird. Both cars being quite similar from the side, differences are barely visible.
