There were three. Two were 302 cars, one of which was destroyed attempting the 2-wheel scene, and the last was a 429 car, used in the street scenes with all that tire spinning. The 429 car still exists, was found more or less accidentally.
The 2-wheel scene is Hollywood trivia. The car goes in on the right wheels, comes out on the left. The first try wrecked the car, and another driver did the second attempt. He could only do the left wheels.
