Stolen 1967 Shelby GT500 found

Well, this could have had a little better ending. Remember that ’67 Shelby GT500 that was stolen close to downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma a couple of weeks ago? The Tulsa police department finally located it out in the country about 30 minutes south of Tulsa. By the look of the pics, the thieves did a good job of removing just about anything that was bolted on, including the doors, deck lid, and the entire front end.

Police have arrested three people in connection with the theft and have said that there might be one or two more arrests in the future. One of those arrested worked for a local moving company that was involved in the storage of the car. That was part of the way detectives were able to narrow down the suspect list – only the owner, a few of his friends, and workers at the moving company knew the location of the locked warehouse where the car was stored.

The engine and transmission appear to be intact for the most part, along with most of the interior. From the look of the pics though, it will take quite a bit of work to bring it back to it’s former glory.

I hope the thieves think it was worth the trouble. Not only will they be charged with felony larceny of an automobile (if convicted, they could serve between 3 to 10 years on this charge alone) but because they had to break into a building when it was stolen, they will also be slapped with a burglary charge. Crime never pays my friends!
