Looking at the tire position in the rear wheel wheels gives a good view of fresh-from-the-factory ride height.

Is the 'S' above the tri-star hood emblem "correct" ?

The "S" above the tri-star would be an early Champion.

I would guess that these were shown in theaters since they are in color.

The hood fit on both cars is far better than what was typically seen on production models. I wonder how much extra work they had to do to get them looking so presentable for the commercial.
