Continuity 

Shaft's Camaro Z28 changes from a Z28/Rally Sport (a.k.a. Z28/RS) to a base Z28 during the chase. A base 1970 Camaro Z28 has the parking lights below the headlights; the Z28/Rally Sport has the parking lights next to the headlights, as well as an open-aired grille.

The chase with Shaft begins with a closeup of the traffic light at which Suzanne is waiting in the Road Runner. When the light changes from red to green there's a slight change in the shape and position of the clouds in the background, indicating an edit.

Crew or equipment visible 

In final scene, as Louise is leaving the Astrodome, and the large, roll-up door opens for her, revealing bright daylight, a stage-hand can be seen operating the door at the far right edge of the scene. This is only visible on wide-screen format; probably only on the LaserDisc.

Factual errors 

The license plate "BRD SHT" would have been disallowed; Texas had a long list (in about five languages) of things you could not have on custom plates.

At the beginning of the car chase, when Duvall drives out of the Astrodome parking garage nearly hitting the cop on a motorcycle, there is a shot of her wearing the black driving gloves. Later in the chase when she is stopped at a light and notices the police car behind her, she puts on the black gloves, supposedly for the first time.
