Police in Chatsworth, Ontario, Canada are searching for a thief who knows his round around an automobile restoration shop.

Instead of stealing the whole 1971 Corvette stored in a house garage on Grey Road 40 in Grey County, Ontario, a thief just picked and chose what he wanted from the car: some $10,000 worth of parts that included a head valve, carburetor, ignition system, water pump, transmission, and drive shaft.

The theft occurred between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on March 18, according to Grey County Ontario Provincial Police.

The misfortunate Corvette itself was in the process of being restored, so now the owner will have even more work to do.

Police are hoping that someone might have information that could solve the crime. They’re asked to call OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or they can leave an anonymous tip with Grey-Bruce Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
