Be on the lookout for a black on black fuel injected 1965 Corvette coupe that was stolen during the Bloomington Gold Corvette Show in Indianapolis, Indiana last last month.
The Sting Ray was taken from the parking lot of the Comfort Suites on Fortune Circle West about 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 23.
The Corvette’s VIN was 194375S103461, and the tag on the Rochester fuel injection system was part number 7017380, serial number 1005. The car has gold lines on knockoff wheels.
If you come across any parts with these markings on them, contact the Indianapolis police department immediately. Also, any fuel injection parts without a tag on them could also be considered suspicious.
According to a post on Corvette Forum, the car had been owned by the victim for 47 years.
Our sympathies to the owner – no amount of insurance money can replace what this Corvette means to him.
The owner posted the following message using his “Gary65” moniker on the Forum:
Thank you for all the comments that all of you have posted, and the work in trying to get our Corvette back. I am the owner of the stolen Corvette. Yes, my wife and I are devastated. This was part of our family. We are trying to get the information out to as many people and sites as possible. I heard that there may have been another vette stolen last weekend. If this is true could that person contact me at 815-399-6015 or 815-299-0722. Thanks again to all those wonderful people out there who are helping out. – Gary
