DEARBORN (WWJ) – Police are looking for a vintage vehicle, stolen from outside the Henry Ford Museum.
Dearborn Police Lt. Doug Topolski said a man was in town from California and had parked his Ford pickup in the Henry Ford parking lot all day on June 26th, with his classic car in tow.
Both the vintage vehicle and the pickup were stolen, along with the trailer.
“We don’t see a lot of them out there in this condition,” Topoliski told WWJ Newsradio 950. “It was a 1930 Ford Model A, and we’ve got pictures from the owner now — it’s just a beautiful car.”
“Anybody who appreciates cars is gonna appreciate what this owner is going through having this thing taken,” he said.
It’s not clear if the Model A convertible was going to be shown at the museum.
Topolski said the classic car community should be looking out for the vehicle, or parts, that someone might be trying to sell.
Vehicles stolen are a 2001 Ford F250 Pick up California Plate: 6P95642 White top with Gold on Bottom of Truck, Nascar License Plate rim/Small NASCAR sticker in rear window, a 2007 Iner Carrier Road Runner Trailer (White) California Plate: 4JT5217 (2-Axel Enclosed Trailer) Small Ford Racing Sticker on rear Bumper and a 1930 Ford Model A (Yellow, with black/chrome fenders and Brown convertible top) California Plate 670RHG, VIN: A2970284.
