Trivia / Vanishing Point

  • Chrysler loaned five Challengers to the production company, but demanded that they be returned after filming so they could be sold to unsuspecting customers. This is why a 1967 Camaro is destroyed in the climax (and was filled with dynamite to explode on impact). According to stunt coordinator Carey Loftin, they had to use parts from one to fix another, because they "really ruined a couple of those cars." Makes one feel sorry for the buyers of those five Challengers.
  • Irony: Gilda Texter, the naked woman on the motorcycle, went on to a career in Hollywood as a costume designer.
