Looks a little smaller than a XB, but the general shape is a pretty close match, and you have the blower and wheels that look like a match. Keep posting updates as you progress.

Welcome to the forum!

Very cool! What did you do with the front end? I'm hoping you went with the damaged Road Warrior look.

Thanks for sharing, and let's see some more of your ride!

Not to shabby. I'm an AMC fan and originally thought the BoB was a Javelin ( before MMM.com). What you got under the hood?
I would do the post wreck look. 1- because I like it better and 2- because it would be easier than fabricating to nose. Propane tanks are quite heavy so you'll want to cut away as much as you can and may need to beef up the rear suspension to keep the ride height.

Nice work! There's usually a couple of Javelins and AMX's at my local cruise-in. Another similarity is the shape of the dashboard, the way it curves (angles?) around the driver. How did you construct the blower? Keep us posted with progress pics.

it will have a chevy 350 , for ease of parts, and i happen to have one to use, i got the javelin as a roller and it was pretty picked apart so what better car to replicate than a Interceptor. here is a shot of the front with all parts gone.. If i go with the post wreck look i will have to make a grill to protect the radiator , maybe expanded metal painted black so it blends in..I had the blower scoop built by a guy on Youtube that has the Torino mad max car, he did a great job,,the 671 case and pulley are just bolted to hood for now but will be attached to motor later with functional switch and pulley,, motor is at machine shop getting rebuilt..too much fun.

Get some rectangle headlights on it, F100 should be easy to sourse,does the blower wheel work from the switch like the real road warrior interceptor :?: looks like theres no donk init.
