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. More about the Interceptor/Pursuit Special can be found at madmaxmovies.com 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 sale. 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 Kennedy-Miller studios. 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 Keswick, England. 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. http://www.dezercollection.com

Mad Max Cars of Wasteland Weekend - The Monster Monte Carlo | Roads & Rides
Mad Max and a monstrous Chevrolet Monte Carlo come together at Wasteland Weekend in Ron Griffith's insane custom Monstr Carlo car. Girls, grills and guns! Meet Wasteland Weekend master Ron Griffith and his Monster Carlo machine take us on a drive through the barren desert on Twenty-Mule-Team Road. At first glance, Ron Griffith is just your average guy. He owns an automotive repair shop in California City deep within the Mojave desert. On a normal day, he can be found under the hood of Vegas-bound tourist's car that didn't quite make it through the desert heat. But Ron and his pals have a hidden passion that you'd never suspect. It's a movie that premiered in 1979 starring an up-and-coming actor named Mel Gibson. A movie about a post-apocalyptic world full of gas-stealing, treacherous land pirates known as wastelanders. They LOVE Mad Max. They love Mad Max so much that they have created a yearly festival in the Mojave called the Wasteland Weekend. Tribes build their custom Wasteland cars well in advance to storm through the gates, raid other tribes and there is even a contest to see who has the best car of the year. Ron Griffith and the Monstr Carlo are previous winners of that coveted prize. It's a stock Chevy 350 with a stock automatic transmission. "The car still uses points," says Ron. Points work and when you are scavenging through the wasteland you want to keep things easy to maintain. Besides making sure the car runs, Ron has also outfitted the car with offensive and defensive equipment that is both practical and menacing for this wasteland world.

My Mad Max Interceptor Project: Part 1
This is a documentary about fulfilling one of my dreams. I am building my dream car, the Mad Max Interceptor. There is currently 3 parts to see! Pardon all the verbal pauses. I will remedy that in the next video. In this video is how I got started and where I am at on the project. I imported a car from Australia to Ohio, USA; the kind of car that was used to build the famous movie car. This is part 1 of who knows how many videos. I just decided to capture the progress in a documentary for others to enjoy. You can learn a LOT more about the project at my website about my car. It is about a year and a half behind as I ran out of free hosting space, never thinking I would use all of it. My plan to host it at my own "paid for" hosting account was thwarted when I learned I would have to build the whole site over again. Anyways, you can see a lot about my car, the parts I got for it including "Mad Max" parts, info about the XA - XC series Falcons, the movie car, and much more at http://xaxbinterceptor.tripod.com .

MAD MAX FALCON REPLICA START UP
WASTELAND WEEKEND 2010 AWESOME REPLICA OF MAD MAX HERO CAR WITH REAL Supercharger!





2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors. The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre. It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world. Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre behind the project, with stunning results. "Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said. "We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand it." Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor. Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level. TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design Ford should take to the next level. The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version, which is expected to be revealed later this year. The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on bikes straight off the road. Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy vehicles. Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also drags the car into the future. "There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further," he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way. Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's vehicles." Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but still brutal and tough."
