Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate
Replica Ford Falcon Mad Max
I made this video about replica of the (at least for me) greatest car on
the planet earth. This car is Australian Ford Falcon and it is costumized
in Mad Max style.
P.S.: some jackass was rude to me by PM and now i'm just informing any
missdirected viewers of this movie that this v8 is not mine and clips shown
here were found on google. I'm sorry for missleading you.
Mad Max - Last V8 - Just Damned Cool!
March 22, 2008 - Met up with Justice again for some patrolling around the
mean streets of Lewisville.
Another fine film by Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org.

GEARZ...and it's all here!
Mad Max Interceptor Replica with REAL Blower & Scott EFI Unit
Unlike the actual film car, which had a non-operational Supercharger system, this replica has both a
functional 6-71 Blower & Scott EFI unit, atop a 351 Cleveland specifically
designed for Supercharger application. I
imported this XB GS Falcon in 2001 after being located in Australia in a
less than desirable condition.It was then restored/built to the first Mad
Max Interceptor specifications and is located in New York.

Original Movie Interceptor
The original movie Interceptor began life as a standard 1973 XB GT Ford
Falcon Coupe. In 1976, film makers Byron Kennedy and George Miller began
pre-production on Mad Max, a futuristic police movie. For the film, they
needed a vehicle to feature as the "Black on Black, Pursuit Special Police
Interceptor' - the sleek, mean and powerful high performance Police car of
the Main Force Patrol.
Murray Smith was hired as part of the Mad Max crew and one of his tasks was
to design and build the Interceptor. The project began with his acquisition
of the XB Falcon, mentioned above, and with Peter Arcadipane, Ray
Beckerley, and various others, proceeded to modify the car to film
specifications. The key modification was the Concorde Show Van front end,
roof and trunk spoilers, fender flares and the Supercharger equipped with a Scott fuel injector
hat ( which was for appearance only and non-functional ). The Concorde
front was a fairly new accessory at the time, designed by Peter Arcadipane
at Ford of Australia as a showpiece. The car also received quite a few
other minor modifications to complete the package such as, an on/off blower
switch, Max Rob steering wheel, interior blue police light, siren, and a
custom roof mounted police radio. There was only ONE Black Interceptor ever
built for the first Mad Max film.
Following the production of Mad Max, the car was no longer needed, and was
modified once more to make it suitable for use as a standard road car
(basically by removing the blower and the side pipes). It was then toured
around Melbourne to shopping centers and car shows as part of the promotion
done for the film. Following this promotional work, the car was put up for
In the mean time, this low budget Australian film had gained worldwide
success, prompting a sequel, Mad Max 2 or The Road Warrior, as it was
released as in the US. The Black Interceptor was then reacquired by
Kennedy-Miller Studios for use once more. The blower and side pipes were
reinstalled, although different to the originals, along with changing the
rear wheels. The car was further modified to fit the setting of the new
film, with large gas tanks fitted in the trunk, it's general appearance
given a more used and stressed look and the front end was also modified by
removing the bottom spoiler. In addition to modifying the original car, a
duplicate car was built for Mad Max 2 for filming of driving sequences,
while the original car was used for all the close ups and interior shots.
When the story eventually required the Black Interceptor to be destroyed in
a spectacular crash and burn up sequence, the duplicate car was used,
leaving the original more or less intact. However, it's use for the
filmmakers was over, and the car was collected by a used metal dealer from
Broken Hill for scrap, along with several other vehicles from the film.
Although it was supposed to be scrapped, the new 'owner' was reluctant to
destroy this important car, and it was ultimately passed on to a colleague,
Ray Evans, from Adelaide. The car then sat outside Ray Evans' junk yard for
more than three years, and was the subject of much interest. After
negotiations, Bob Forsenko, a fan of this film series, purchased the
Interceptor and sent it to Franklin Side Crash Restorers where Tony and
Mario Romeo restored it to it's original glory however, retaining the tanks
fitted in the sequel. Eventually Forsenko contacted Murray Smith, and
confirmed that this was, in fact, the original car which Murray built for
In 1993, Mr. Forsenko sold the Interceptor to Dr. Peter Nelson, the
director, curator and owner of the "Cars of the Stars Motor Museum" in
In 2012, the entire "Cars of the Stars" collection, including the
Interceptor, was sold to Miami, Florida Real estate developer and
collector, Michael Dezer, of The Dezer Collection Auto Museum. The one and
only original Mad Max Interceptor is now on display at the museum, located
at 2000 NE 146th St., North Miami, Florida 33181, with other famous film
and TV cars.
