The iconic Ford Falcon release, which is also known as the Interceptor from “Mad max”, sells Orlando Auto Museum in Florida.
The car is currently owned by developer Michael Désert and holds a special place in the pop culture of Australia as the most famous car ever to participate in the filming of a local movie.
As noted, the Deserts had previously rejected an offer in the amount of 2 000 000 dollars for the car, and at least one major Museum in Australia showing interest in the car.
In turn, one of the Australian car magazines trying to lobby the government to return the car to the country.
Coupe based on the Ford Falcon GT of the time, the machine was substantially modified in preparation for the filming of “Mad Max” and has many original features, including a large supercharger.
After the completion of filming of “Mad max” Kennedy-Miller Productions gave the car mechanic Murray Smith in return owed money. Smith, in particular, removed the supercharger and checked the car for road use before Kennedy-Miller Productions re-bought it in 1983 for the movie “Mad Max 2”.
After the regular shooting of the cars were sold to the junkyard, and then it was purchased by entrepreneur Bob Fursenko in 1985. Later Falcon some time was in the National Museum in South Australia after it bought the owner of the Museum of the Stars Motor Museum in the UK in 1992.
Deserts became the owner of all cars of this Museum in 2011 and sent them to Miami, including “Interceptor”.
