The ultimate replica of Mad Max’s famous black Interceptor is for sale – and it’s fully road registered for use in Australia.

While the original XB Falcon GT-based movie prop starred in the 1979 release film, the replica is currently featured in Australian Muscle Car magazine.

Broken Hill resident Kerry Turley and his team of suppliers built the car over the last two years. His love affair with the movie began as a boy.

“I can remember, as a 10-year-old, I was kicking a footy around the oval and next to it, two semi-trailers turned up with these crazy-looking cars on them. They were the Mad Max II cars to be shot in the movie.

“My brother was involved in the movie. He had to take his trusty ferrets out to where it was being shot to catch the rabbits you can see in the second movie.”

Intriguingly, Turley has the newly built car up for sale.

“The fun’s over now it’s finished,” he said.

Genuine buyers can contact him via tturleys@bigpond.net.au – no tyre-kickers please.

Turley’s car is the culmination of almost 30 years of research, with renowned Mad Max replica builder Gordon Hayes and Grant Hodgson slowly piecing together the data over that time.

AMC’s latest edition, which is now on sale, provides the real story behind the XB Falcon GT-based hero car.

AMC spoke to the men who designed, built and drove Australia’s most famous muscle car. We track the car’s movie career, explode some myths and pay homage via the ultimate replica.

Check out Issue 55 (May June 2011) of Australian Muscle Car for more on the original car’s origins, build, where it ended up and what it was like to drive. The latter according to stuntman Phil Brock.

AMC also unearths a Monaro GTS awoken after a 30-year hibernation in a Melbourne backyard garage overgrown with grass; outlines the incredible racing career of Frank Matich; has the latest Touring Car Masters news; reports from the Phillip Island Classic; and shows unpublished pics from the 1971 Hardie Ferodo 500.
