As far as I know, there has never been a release of the movie with the
"edited out" Charlotte Rampling female
hitchhiker scenes. I've heard plenty of stories such as "I know someone

in the movie when I saw it in the 1970s", but until I see proof that it
exists, I'll stand by my assertion
that it does not.
I've been attending Mopar car shows for over 12 years, including 10
Mopar Nationals, and I've never seen or heard of
anyone claiming to own one of the Challengers used in the film. Some of
the cars used in the 1997 Fox Television
remake do still survive, including one on display at the Garrett
Musclecar Museum in Sevierville, Tennessee.
It was used for the "Tunnel-Jump" scene as well as a few "drive-by"
shots. It remains just as it did when filming was completed ("movie
dirt" and all).
