Car description

Mad Max Interceptor project - a REAL Australian Falcon hardtop, just like the original movie car.
Dreamt of building your very own Mad Max Interceptor but either didn't know where to get one, how to get one or just couldn't find one in your budget?
Well, hopefully, today is your lucky day.
Please note everything listed below is included in the auction price, EXCEPT the items specifically mentioned as being included in the "buy it now" price, they are bonuses for the person who doesn't want to risk missing out to another bidder and grabs this deal. (A full list of the buy it now inclusions is towards the end of the listing)
1972 XA Falcon hardtop (also known as a coupe in Australia) (The XA and XB Falcon Hardtops are essentially the same shell, both externally and internally, either shell can be fitted with panels from either model and could only be told apart by reading the ID tags), I have found that the 72 model is more attractive to owners in several locations due to reduced taxes or emissions rules compared to the later 73-78 hardtops.
This car was one I was putting together for some fun in my spare time. I wasn't really planning on selling it yet, however, I have limited workshop space and 3 other hardtops due in from panel shops within the next few weeks. I don't have time to finish this one before the other cars start arriving and I can't risk working in tight spaces with cars that have fresh paint. So this project has to go. (I will be able to make time to finish packing the vehicle prior to shipping)
THE FIRST THING YOU MUST KNOW! The shell has sustained damage due to a rear end accident. It is repairable and I had taken it to a couple of panel shops recently and both were happy to fix it (each had different plans on the best process). Regardless neither was able to fit it in for a couple of months and I just don't have the time or the space to store it, so it's going a lot cheaper than it would if I spent the time and money to repair it. I am INCLUDING in the sale the following parts to facilitate the repair of the car (note, not all of them are required, however, I'd rather supply more than needed with the car and give the new owner the options to fix it how they prefer):
Included is:
- Another complete floor pan from under the front seats right through to the rear bumper panel, inc sills (rocker panels) and wheel tubs (wheelhouse) (in good straight condition with minimal rust)- New RH Sill (rocker) panel (mostly replacement due to minor rust)
- New RH/LH inner 1/4 panel lower (existing have minor rust and average previous repairs)
- New RH/LH inner 1/4 panel outer(existing have minor rust and average previous repairs)
- New RH/LH lower trunk seal corners (existing have been removed due to replacement of tail light beaver panel
- New RH/LH beaver to floor braces (existing will need to be removed for repair and they are only $30ea so easier to replace than to refit the old ones)
- New RH/LH trunk floor panels (donor floor pan actually has usable floors, but I'll include new floor anyway)

I have approx 150 images on the car that I will upload to a website, genuine buyers are welcome to contact me for a link to evaluate the restoration work required to decide if the car is for them (personally I would say it's a moderate (but not quick) job for a panel guy or a decent job for a hobby restorer, I fit the latter category and I would have taken it on if I had more time and space). The website also goes into more detail about what repairs are needed in order not to clutter the description here. I would prefer all interested buyers to contact me prior to buying. I do realize that anyone who has been looking into the value of these cars will see this is cheap and it will sell quickly, so I invite questions sooner than later in the hope that you don't miss out.
Ok now that the important negative point has been disclosed onto the rest of the car.
1972 XA Falcon Hardtop (Factory V8 body)Mostly complete car, partially converted to a Mad Max Interceptor replica.
Included with the car (though some items may not be pictured at this stage):
Complete steel body shell, with all factory steel panels, doors, fenders, fluted bonnet,boot lid and wiper panel. There is some rust, howvere it really is better than most projects available these days. I've included most of the repair sections needed to fix both the damage and the rust, however there will be some other sections needed (most will be easy enough to fab up sections and won't require bought patches).
Complete Mad Max Interceptor body kit, suitable for use for any of the 3 variations of the Interceptor, Mad Max, The Road Warrior or Fury Road (includes the nose cone, flares, roof wing and trunk/boot wing).
Full set of Mad Max wheels, 15x8" fronts (new in boxes) and 15x10" rears (new but with tires fitted, as shown in pics) All rims are from the same set, same style and same satin black powder coating, with chrome dome center caps and chrome nuts.
Fake Zoomie side pipes (will add pic of those soon)
(No blower included, sorry the one in the pics is a screen used Fury Road prop that I am keeping it, BUT I can offer a couple of options).
XC rectangular headlights with mounting buckets
Perspex headlight covers
The car also has a complete dash, with GS/GT style gauges and surround, dash pad, dash frame, glove box with door, heater vents, heater box, ducting, vent cables, hand brake mech, peddle box, blank floor shift steering column, indicator stalk, steering wheel, etc.
Used black carpet
Door interior trim panels
Black sports seats
Black XB Rear seat (currently fitted with a sedan seat which is slightly taller in the base, however the buy it now price includes a correct hardtop base)
All side glass
Rear window
Front windscreen
All window mechanisms (inc 2 new rebuild kits suitable for any of the 4 windows, for future use if ever needed)
Stainless roof gutter trims, front windscreen trim (top strip is 2 pc, as per the Fury Road car that I was going to replicate), C pillar corner trims
XB hardtop tail lights
Fibreglass rear bumper (Buy it now price includes me sourcing a steel bumper if preferred)
Original engine bay and interior wiring harness (note this is as fitted to the car when last on the road, it may have some previous modifications and may require some repair or additional wires added, or it may work as is, I haven't checked it over).
Fuel tank (currently has a standard tank fitted which is overall good but does have a couple of visible pin holes in the top surface, I'm happy to provide instructions on how to convert this tank to a long range version whilst also fixing the couple of holes, alternatively the Buy it now price includes upgrade to a rare factory long range tank)
All factory suspension and brakes (note, assume these will require reconditioning, the vehicle is 45 years old and I do not know when some items were replaced, the brakes and suspension will in most part be fine but certainly some items will be simply wise to freshen up).
Door catches, handles, and mechanisms (XA doors fitted, but I'll throw in some XB door sections in case you want to change them)
V8 radiator, brake booster, V8 engine mounts (suit Cleveland or Windsor), bonnet hinges, wiper motor, and linkages. Plus no doubt other items that I haven't mentioned but I have here for the car or already fitted.
Ratchet auto shifter (B&M or similar). I'll throw in a center console as well.
Also as a no cost option, I'm happy to include:
Exterior parts to convert the car to factory appearance, inc an original XB Falcon grille, headlights, indicator, bumper and stone tray (OR XC if preferred, XA is an option but would require additional parts which could be arranged, contact me first if this is something you would want). This would give you theoption to restore the car to original, then later Mad Max it if you so desire.
The following items are ONLY included with the Buy it now option (unless of course bidding goes over the buy it now price but I expect someone will grab it before bidding ends):- XB GT spec 351 Cleveland engine (good runner T code motor with alloy intake, alloy rocker covers, and aftermarket HEI distributor) (engine would come fitted in the engine bay)
- Auto trans, inc crossmember and tail shalft.
- XB GT 9" Diff housing with standard drum brakes and 28 spline axles (Add your own center)- Rare XB GT factory option long range 28 Gal fuel tank- Original hardtop rear seat base- XB GT 7k tacho dash cluster (auction includes GS dash with 6k tacho).
- Repro Scott injector hat (fibreglass with alloy base)
So that's pretty much everything you need to make your very own Interceptor. Build it cheap in Fury Road spec or go to town and build a show winning Mad Max 1 replica, pretty much everything you need is there ready for you to get building.
If you've been looking at Interceptors over the last 12-18 months then you'll know 3 things about prices,
1)Complete Interceptors have been sold for over US$80k.
2)One of my previous project cars was bought by a customer, who spent just over a week working on it (quick tidy up of the brakes, engine and electricals), and then sold it for over US$40k. That was in very similar condition to this (less accident damage but a lot more rust). In fact, the guy that bought that of me has been considering buying this one as well when I mentioned to him last that I was going to sell it.
3)Regular Falcon hardtops without any of the Mad Max gear generally sell between US$20-80k ($20k gets you a pretty rusty and incomplete car with no running gear) (some of the rarer models with the same bodyshell have sold for OVER US$300k!!)
Q & A:
But the car is in Australia and I'm in (The USA, Canada, U.K, Ireland, Germany, Belguim, Italy, Japan, etc), how would I get the car?
No problem. I have shipped dozens of these all over the world. I can make all shipping arrangements and I will personally transport the vehicle and all additional parts to the shipping container and pack it securely. (If you have a friend that wants an Aussie car either a Falcon like this or something else I can pack two cars in a container and save you each on shipping costs.
How do I know you're not going to take my money and disappear?
Aside from being well known forbuilding the screen used Interceptors for Fury Road (along with a number of other vehicles for the movie), To my knowledge, I have put more Falcon hardtops into new homes than anyone else, anywhere. I've owned 74 Falcon hardtops so far personally, having shipped dozens of those to new homes in the US, Canada, U.K, Scotland, Germany, Belguim, New Zealand over the past 15+ years (many much more expensive than this one). So you are not dealing with someone who hasn't done this before, you're not risking giving money to a one off private seller half way around the planet, most of those as Interceptor project cars like this one. I have sold body kits, wheels and other Mad Max parts to many other people across the globe. My Interceptor kit is by far the most commonly used worldwide (I also have more items coming soon).
Any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.
