1973 Adrian's Pursuit Special - The World Traveler
This car was in one of the first few batches of cars brought over by MMC, which makes Adrian one of our very early clients. This particular XA falcon (converted to XB front clip before shipping to the UK) has gone from Australia to the USA, over to the UK for many long years, then back to Australia.
It began its new life as a respectable project starter, has gone to a BEAUTIFUL Mad Max 1 replica, and gathering fame in this guise as Englands only BoB Replica, wowing folks at countless carshows, and being Featured on several T.V. programs. The story still continues with Adrian and his Interceptor finding their way back to Australia, visiting the MM1 filming locations. With the car eventually being converted to an awesome looking MM2/the Roadwarrior replica, and going home to visit the filming locations in BROKEN HILL! We can hardly wait to see what is next for this history making machine, and its very talented owner/creator.
We recently talked with Adrian and he was kind enough to contribute the summerized history of this World Travelling beauty in his own words.
"I originally found the car on the net in 2000. After searching high and low for a suitable base car I finally came across MadMaxCars.com and called up Terry James and spoke on the phone. We struck a deal and the car was shipped to the UK, and arrived in May 2001. In the meantime I contacted Advanced Spoilers in Adelaide and ended up purchasing pretty much everything for the car from there,although some of the parts were not useable and in the end most of the kit parts had to be cut up and re-worked to something close to what was needed The "bolt on" bodykit from MadMaxCars was not available yet, at that time . After 18 months of work and a lot of the time waiting for parts to arrive from Oz I finally finished the Interceptor.
After driving the car up and down the country(UK) for several years, attending shows, featuring in mags and being lucky enough to do a couple of TV appearances, our time had come to re-locate to Australia. So, the car was again loaded into a container for it's long journey back home. It arrived back in Oz in Late 2006 and it was at this point I decided to give the Interceptor the full Mad Max 2 look. To me this only added character to the car, which has also now been back to all the film locations; not just in Broken Hill location for Mad Max2 (where it aquired the dirt) but also in Victoria, Melbourne, location for the original Mad Max movie."
