Mad Max Fan Recreates Original Interceptor Car

DALE: You can shut the gate on that one Maxie,
it’s the ducks guts. COMM: Over 3 decades ago, 50-year-old Dale Walter from Michigan, set his heart on recreating
one of cinemas most iconic cars. DALE: Mad Max is one of my very top favourite movies of all time and when I was sitting
there in the theatre and they rolled out that car in the scene in the garage where they first
show it to him, I turned to my friend and I said “Someday I’ll own that car” and he said “yeah right”.
Well, 30 years later I sent him a picture of me next to the car! It’s just so bad, I mean
it’s just such a bad car! COMM: But to build the replica of the police interceptor which is so far featured in three films
from the Mad Max franchise, Dean first had to get hold on an Australian Ford Falcon. DALE: I flew out to Washington to take a look at it. And when I first saw it I remember saying “I have never paid more money in my life for a bigger
piece of junk”. COMM: Undeterred, Dean paid over $120,000 dollars to convert the 1972 Falcon into a convincing
Mad Max Interceptor. DALE: And this is the heart of the car. That is a 351 Cleveland, its 450 horse power is built
by proformance engineering. We spent $12,000 on the engine alone. DALE: My favourite thing about the car is probably the engine sound. I considered putting a stereo in it, but that engine note off that 351/390 is
just so choice that I just like listening to it. DALE: The steering wheel is the Maxrob steering wheel that was used in the movie and you can
see in the shifter it has the lever to turn on and off the blower. One of the
interesting things about the car that I get asked all the time is, is the blower real? And no
it’s not, because if you remember in the movie he would turn on the blower which is the big
scoopy thing to get more power to the car. A real blower can’t work like that. The way a blower works is its forced air induction and if you turn it on and off you would probably
blow the bottom out of your engine. So the way this one works is it’s on a magnetic clutch, when I pull the lever it spins up the blower just like in the movie. DALE: If you notice here it has the RVS radio just like the one in the movie had. And what Mad Max car would be complete without your handy dandy double barrel shot gun? So we have
a replica of that here because these are really illegal even in the United States. DALE: One of the other features of the car is it does have a movie accurate siren. It also has a movie accurate horn and like the car in the movie we have a PA system as a police car would. “Hey you stop, hey you know you’re a turkey?” like Goose says in the movie. DALE: When I first saw the car after it was rebuilt I was absolutely stunned, absolutely
stunned. It took them five years to do this but the wait was worth it. DALE: Well you’ve seen it, you’ve heard it, how about we go for a ride? COMM: The interceptor always turns heads, even on the highway. MAN: Sweet car! DALE: You get all kinds of odd looks, you get either “that car looks familiar” or people
whose eyes light up and they go “that’s the Mad Max car!” CARL: I think it’s great, it’s a great movie, it’s a great tribute to the car. I didn’t see
it first, I heard it first! TIM: The car’s pretty cool, I think the car is awesome actually. It brings me back
to when I was a little kid watching the movie for the first time. COMM: And the car has also attracted the attention of some other Mad Max buffs who are keen to
get their hands on the wheel. DALE: I get asked a lot of times would I sell the car? The car is pretty much priceless
to me at this point. Of course there’s always a price. If somebody walked through the door
with $25 million dollars I would pretty much hand him the car. DALE: You know this was such a dream for so long. 30 years. To now be sitting here
in my own Mad Max Interceptor is pretty cool. COMM: But for all its big screen bling, Dean’s interceptor does have its downsides. DEAN: I often wonder how it would fair in a post apocalyptic wasteland and I think not so well. Simply because it gets about 6 miles to the gallon and, you know, you could tell in the second movie
Max added those huge tanks. There’s a reason for that. This thing sucks gas like it’s going
out of style. So for that reason not so well.

  3. Sandro Mamo September 28, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    where r those shapes of cars????????????? looks like a ford capri. these was cars with a shape of a car and not cars with a shape of an egg like today

  4. 4D bullshit Patroll September 29, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    These cars are rare. Weren't a classic til most were gone. $120k for that? Earlier this year (2019) I was returning to Melbourne from work in old goldfield towns like Daylesford and Ballarat (not mining. That finished 100 yrs ago) and was going down a long stretch of down hill called Pentland Hills near the areas they shot the original movie and I came up on a car pulling another car on a trailer fast so I had to pull up quickly. The car on the back was a yellow XB falcon 2 door fast back in very good condition. I don't blame them for being careful. It would be worth a house by the sound of it.

  5. Rangya Alif September 30, 2019 at 8:31 am

    That car need some rusty and dust

  6. David Epps October 1, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    There are various words to describe something favored by human generations. In this century and its previous, we have example such as Far Out, Radical, Awesome, Wild, Sick, Boss, Cool… By far though, I think the best way to convey to this machine is simply: BAD

    You should add those petrol tanks to it and go get her dirrrrttttty.

  10. taz Man October 4, 2019 at 3:49 am

    I love it but to bad the blower setup is fake

  12. Eric Fontaine October 5, 2019 at 5:26 am

    That is AWESOME.. Nice work

  13. Taylor Humes October 6, 2019 at 7:31 am

    You contradict yourself. The blower is real if it operates, and forces air through your intake manifold.

  14. paladro October 6, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    love the films and the car, but i'd have spent 120k on something much nicer.

  15. James Llewellyn October 8, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    It was worth the wait to be the coolest man on the planet.

  16. John Stevenson October 9, 2019 at 12:03 am

  26. bowlerwildcatGaming2016 October 18, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    It would be awesome to own a replica of the Interceptor from all the movies with all there little changes

  27. Hot80s October 19, 2019 at 1:34 am

    Looks like it hooks up pretty good. It needs some dirt & dust on it.

  28. semajredlac October 20, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    In Australia, there is a fierce rivalry between Ford & Holden, Holden which i prefer being the equivalent to a Chevy but even I like this Ford such an iconic car, though I quite like old Dodges growing up in Australia watching shows like the Dukes of Hazzard and films like Vanishing Point & Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry. I guess we can all appreciate a great muscle car!

  29. The Sethioz Project October 21, 2019 at 10:21 am

    KITT has always been my favorite tho, just wish i had the money to build my own.

  54. spikedart November 8, 2019 at 12:03 am

    Nice. Shouldn't it have more power even without the sc?

  55. Latin Dance Videos November 8, 2019 at 8:46 pm

    $125k seems to be talking it up a bit, still cool.
    There's a few fan remakes of various movie scenes, some script their own variations. Could be a fun project to do some with film students.

  56. Adventureguy November 8, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    like but where is the turbo sound

  58. Dave S. November 10, 2019 at 10:56 am

    If you're in Melbourne, go to the Melbourne University underground carpark, that's where Max first saw the Interceptor

  59. InTeCredo November 11, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    The headlamps are wrong. Too small.

    Everything about that car is FAKE

  66. spanky arse November 16, 2019 at 4:43 am

    Awesome car. Brilliant replica. I love the 'really illegal, even in the US' comment.

  69. gatorred157 November 17, 2019 at 3:39 am

    I changed a boat motor it had 3 2barrels carbs on a v6 2stroke evinrude 150 xp it took up to 10 gallons for a 8 mile lake one way down and one way back! on super high test racing gas if you can find it! i took it to a local dealer he told me motor was shot & boat was junk! i asked a second opinion i re-powered the boat with a 60 hp & it would not run why a 20 dollar safety switch! the first guy did a crappy job of telling me the motor was junk! so i cut the wiring up on the motor, before i was told the switch was bad in the boat wiring! I a little mad i wrote evin-rude main head office a nasty gram! question what do i do with this test motor computer that was on the 150 xp??

  70. jcllings November 17, 2019 at 3:19 pm

    Um… I don't think that double barrel is illegal in the US. Oh, it is, probably, IF you saw it off yourself but not if you buy one that starts off that way and fits very specific legal parameters. Put it this way. You can get a shot PISTOL in the US. How is THAT for short?

  71. Tyberius Gun Fhiach November 20, 2019 at 8:49 am

    You need a V8 engine

  72. Steven Barlow November 20, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    I have a 72 Mach 1 with a freshly built Cleveland pulling it and I too have so far neglected to add a stereo. The sound is amazing it is part of the experience. Mad Max is one of my favorite movies so I can understand where this guy is coming from.

    This badass car drove past me on 355 in Illinois on my way home driving in my chevette. Obviously it was a replica and the license plate said mad max. My mind was blown!

  84. tyler bonser November 30, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    The only thing better than a 351 Cleveland is a Cleveland steamer

    the driver seems a bit more heavy than than the original…. 😉

    Easy to setup a real blower that turns on and off, use of reed valves would be the easiest.
