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 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.
