I am the unfortunate victim of a stolen classic car and I need your help trying to locate and recover.
This is a 1972, Chevelle Malibu, Maroon with Black Int, 2 door, 350ci V8, dual exhaust, Dunlop tires. Vehicle had yellow primer paint on the top and hood. Earlier photo, without the yellow primer spots attached. Virginia Tag No. CEB-753.
Vehicle was stolen while at Milton’s Paint and Body Shop on Warwick Blvd in Newport News, VA, during the early morning hours on Wednesday, Oct 22.
I have owned this classic for 30 years and it is dear to my heart. It is not all that valuable of a car, but it is priceless to me for sentimental reasons.
The Newport News police and authorities have all been notified, but my confidence in them is low. Thief report no. 2008-61420. VIN No. 1D37F2B699427
I suspect car would be taken to North Carolina or further south to do a VIN swap with another junk vehicle of similar type. However, it could have been taken anywhere by now. Car was spot primed and ready for paint and could be any color by now.
Please pass the word to all classic car enthusiast, classic car dealers, junk yard dealers and custom car restoration businesses. Any freshly painted 72’ Chevelle is suspect. Please contact me with any leads. My e-mail address is “firstname.lastname@example.org”
Thanks In Advance
