Green vehicle with the dart gun and a bat painted on the bonnet that crashes into a pile of wrecked cars in 1981 film “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior” was the 1971 Chrysler by Chrysler CH Hardtop.
For “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior”, the Chrysler was fitted with a 1966 Pontiac Bonneville bonnet and front grille. The rear window was removed along with the boot. At the very end of the boot a narrow panel was installed for the gunner to sit on. The section separating the cabin from the boot was removed as well. Four truck style exhaust pipes were installed in the newly formed ‘utility’ area, right behind the cabin. Inside the cabin there is only the driver’s seat and a variety of animal skulls on the dashboard. A net is visible hanging from the passenger doors. The cabin is also reinforced with a rollcage. A four barrel dart gun was installed in the back and four truck style roof lights were installed on the cabin. A green skull with blue bat wings is painted on the bonnet.
The vehicle makes its first, albeit brief appearance during Lord Humungus’ negotiations with the people of the Compound. It makes its memorable appearance, however during the chase after the Mack truck on its way to the Compound. The vehicle manages to pull up to the right side of the Mack and shoots out out the rear right set of tires. The Bad Cop gunner signals the driver to attack the truck from the left side as The Gyrocaptain flies above him. As the gunner aims his guns at the left side of the truck, the Gyrocaptain throws a venomous snake onto the gunner. The gunner panics while holding the gun and accidentally pulls the trigger, promptly killing the driver. The car loses control and steers away from the truck straight onto a stack of wrecked cars. The car jumps into the air, clips the highest vehicle of the pile, crashes into yet another car wreck and rolls into a ditch.
