In the early morning hours of June 1, the warehouse of Speed Digital-client Orlando Classic Cars was broken into, and 19 classic and collectible cars were stolen from the dealership's inventory. The Gone In 60 Seconds-like heist targeted cars that ranged from as old as a 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 to as new as a 1998 Ford Mustang GT, and fortunately, it took less than 24 hours to locate and recover the most valuable of the stolen cars – a fuel-injected 1962 Chevrolet Corvette that was being sold for $85,000.
Similar to many big cities across America right now, Orlando is being hit hard by looters stemming from recent nationwide protests, but this appears to be more of a targeted attack of their inventory as the theft of 19 vehicles takes a coordinated effort. The stolen cars ranged from iconic classics to late-model beauties, and one of the coolest is a 1976 Cadillac Coupe de Ville with just 1,500 actual miles on it!
Like this low-mileage Cadillac survivor, most of these cars stand out in one way or another like the brown '77 Trans Am, the baby blue '69 Oldsmobile Toronado or the 1987 Oldsmobile 442 with just 9,500 miles, so hopefully it won't be too hard to find them.
The dealership is located just south of Downtown Orlando, and anyone with information on any of these cars is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff's Office at (407)254-7000 or Orlando Classic Cars directly at (407) 592-5039. The full list of cars – including VINs – is below.
