Saw an XB coupe there a couple of months ago for around $60,000 but that would be negotiable. They currently have an XB sedan for $28,900. I would guess that car has issues. Check their website http://www.prestigemotorgallery.com.au

I'd always thought that to make a movie based on the MFP, all you'd have to do is put the word out via sites like this. There are replicas out there that I'm sure the owners wouldn't mind being used as film cars, as long as they weren't put in harm's way. Or the price was right.


$28,900 for an XB GT Replica sedan, it would want to be mint with not a cent to spend. You can buy a genuine GT for that money (would need some work, but certainly complete and not too far from registerable. Rough XB GT sedans can be found for closer to $15k, absolutely pristine examples are lucky to sell for $50k, above that your talking 73 Big Port 4V cars with sunroofs and rare colours).

I'm in the very early planning stages of a couple of short Mad Max-related films and am getting a feel for costs. Obviously vehicles are the most expensive things to get and top of the list is a Ford XB. The intent is to have a post-apocalypse former MFP pursuit car feature. This means the original colors will be faded if not gone and would look modified, not unlike the Interceptor.

Given I saw estimates from some that even the Interceptor would be generously sold at 25,000, what would I expect an XB to go for that was roadworthy and driveable? I have a total of one stunt in mind (obviously performed by someone who knows what they're doing) and intend no damage to the vehicle.

Any replies greatly welcome, public or private.


I'll sell you a near complete and driveable replica project for under 30k, complete with full body kit, zoomies, wheels, black interior, running and driveable. Will need bodywork and paint but that depends what look your after.
