Continuity mistake: During the first moonshine run chase, and after dealing with the passing train, Gator's car alternatively does and does not have the back glass installed. This is most noticeable while in the lumber yard and afterwards. It isn't lost or damaged during the chase. It's just there, or not, at random.

Continuity mistake: Close-up interior shots show that Gator's brown Ford has a Hurst floor-shifter and manual transmission. But when he arrives at his parent's home, he very obviously puts the column-mounted automatic shifter into 'Park'.

Continuity mistake: When Gator parks his car in front of the courthouse, it is between the white painted lines on the ground. But when he returns to the car to show its engine, it is straddling the line and very crooked.

Continuity mistake: When Gator is delivering shine to a bar, his shirt is almost entirely soaked with sweat as he is about to enter the building and as he emerges from it. But while inside, there are just a few damp spots scattered around the shirt.

Continuity mistake: During the opening scene, after the boat is shot and begins sinking, the officers begin to row away. A close-up shot of the officers is reversed, as Ned Beatty's pocket full of pens and such has moved to his right side, as has the other man's badge.

Continuity mistake: After being given the brown Ford sedan, interior shots of Gator reveal the interior is blue. Yet when being shown shifting the transmission in close-up, the interior parts are all black.

Continuity mistake: As Gator is pulling his brown Ford into a parking space, the front bumper has a pipe bolted to its leading edge in a mild 'V'. This feature is not seen elsewhere in the film and was added to protect the car during filming of a collision later in the film.

Continuity mistake: When Roy Boone and Maggie arrive at Dude's funeral in the silver car, the rear windows are down for the close up shots. Just before they park and get out of the car the rear windows are up.
