IMCDb has Black Tillie designated as a 1971 Ford Custom 500, but there is some debate about the exact model due to all the chrome being removed/painted over. That is the same make/model and year as the car driven by Burt in 'White Lightning'.

I mean I was wondering if the car they used for Sweet Tilly was one of the cars they used physically in the film "White Lightning

Someone on IMCDb points out that when Roxanne Huntley sniffs the gas tank at the end of 'High Octane', the car's original color appears to be brown. However, given the damage that Burt's car must've sustained in  the chase, especially that hard landing across the back of the barge, I doubt that it would still have been around six years later.

Yes, I also did further digging instead of just wondering. Apparently all of White Lightning was filmed in Arkansas so not very likely that car would end up in Georgia years later. It was a cool thought though.
