For sale put up a 1974 Ford Falcon from Mad Max

The iconic Ford Falcon of the year, also known as the “Interceptor” from Mad Max, sells the Orlando Auto Museum in Florida.

The car is currently owned by property developer Michael Deser and occupies a special place in Australian pop culture as the most famous car ever to take part in the filming of a local film.

As noted, Deser previously rejected the offer in the amount of $ 2,000,000 for a car, and at least one major museum in Australia shows interest in the car. In turn, one of the Australian automobile magazines is trying to lobby the government to return the car to the country.

 Based on the Ford Falcon GT coupe of the time, the car was substantially modified in preparation for the shooting at Mad Max and has many original parts, including a large supercharger.

  After completing the filming of Mad Max, Kennedy-Miller Productions presented the car to mechanic Murray Smith in return for the money owed. Smith, in particular, took off the supercharger and registered the car for road use before Kennedy-Miller Productions re-bought it in 1983 for the movie “Mad Max 2”.

 After the next shoot, the car was sold to a landfill, and then it was acquired by entrepreneur Bob Fursenko in 1985. Later, Falcon was at the National Automobile Museum in South Australia for a while, after which it was bought by the owner of the Stars Motor Museum in the UK in 1992. Deser became the owner of all the cars in this museum in 2011 and sent them to Miami, including the Interceptor.
