Stolen 1967 Shelby GT500 found stripped outside of Tulsa

A stolen 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was recouped in a field near Tulsa, Okla., recently after a regional idea led authorities to a farm area that housed several deserted cars and also various other discarded products. According to KTUL News Network 8 in Tulsa, the valued performance auto had actually been stripped of a lot of its exterior panels before authorities located it, but some key products (consisting of the engine and much of the cooling system) had not yet been drawn.

” The GT-500 was covered with brush and also cardboard boxes, as well as situated in a really backwoods near Piles,” the Tulsa Cops Division uploaded to its Facebook web page with the pictures accompanying this article. “The car is undamaged, but the hood, doors, and front fender were all eliminated. The engine is undamaged, but the automobile has a great deal of damage.”

” Car Burglary Detectives also located a stolen dump vehicle as well as a taken sedan on the very same residential or commercial property,” the department claimed. “Tips from the general public and meetings led detectives to this area, where an aerial search was carried out that brought about us discovering the taken Mustang.”

The automobile certainly was worth extra as an amount than as parts (Hagerty values ’67 GT500s starting at $120,000), other than that it’s probably hard to sell such a high-profile item. The good news is, though the thieves clearly made progress in extracting this old pony’s value, most of what continues to be seems relatively intact.

Among the suspects jailed about the burglary apparently benefited a relocating business hired by the GT500’s proprietor. The cars and truck was reported stolen from a locked storage facility.
