We hope this classic car is returned to its rightful owner…
The Osage County Sheriff’s Office has let the public know a 1963 Chevy Impala was stolen from a rural part of Sperry, Oklahoma between April 13 and April 17. While we know an Impala might not be the most special car to some, we bet to the owner it’s a cherished ride, so we want to see this classic car found and returned.

According to the sheriff’s office, the ’63 Impala was stolen along with other items during a burglary. Authorities are asking anyone who might have video footage from the area of N. 68th Ave. and Rock School Road in Sperry to contact them. We assume this would include dashcam footage.
We’re asking readers to keep their eyes peeled for this car. Oftentimes criminals will try to get rid of stolen cars once they see authorities are looking for them. This car could be several states away and someone might be trying to sell it.
Sadly, this should act as a reminder for anyone who has a classic car that you need to take extra steps to secure it. Even if you don’t have a classic Ferrari or anything too valuable, thieves are on the hunt for anything they can turn around and sell easily, so your ride is a potential target.
Upgrading locks, doors, installing motion sensor lights, and putting in cameras that alert you when someone is in the area can all help if you park your vehicle in a garage or storage building, which we recommend. You can install security on the actual car, such as a kill switch, making it more difficult to take. Using a GPS tracker or even a couple hidden in the vehicle can help if someone is still able to take it.
Anyone who has information about this 1963 Chevrolet Impala can call the Osage County Sheriff’s Office at 918-287-3131.
