Throughout the series the rear-view mirror of Starsky's car is often missing when we see a two-shot of the guys in the car from the front through the windscreen. However in other shots of the car in the same scenes the mirror is almost always clearly in place.

In The pilot episode, both Starsky and Hutch jump/fall into a swimming pool. A close-up of Starsky in the water shows him in his blue shirt without his sweater, and his gun in his right hand. But the next cut to him shows him standing up out of the water with his sweater back on, and his gun in his left hand.

The Ford Gran Torino was an automatic, yet Starsky's car always had the very obvious sound that could only be made by a standard (or stick) shift.

What guns do they use?
-In the pilot Starsky uses a 1911A1 style pistol and Hutch a Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver. Early in the episode, while going over their checklist of items, Starsky's gun is referred to as a Beretta, but that is not what he is using. By the time of the regular series Starsky has swapped to a Smith and Wesson model 59 in 9mm and Hutch a Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver. In the first couple episodes, he used a Python with a 4" barrel and then began using a 6" Python for the remainder of the series. Previously, David Soul's vigilante cop character in the Dirty Harry film "Magnum Force' used a Colt Python with a 4" barrel.
