Although there were a lot of parts missing when "Dan" acquired his prize , the interior was pretty much intact.
For those gearheads out there with a keen eye, unlike the "Challenger" in the movie, you'll notice that this "clone" is an automatic.
"Dan" admits to being lazy. I don't know for sure if that means he doesn't like manually shifting gears, or he didn't want to make the conversion to a 4 speed transmission?
