UPDATE: Help Find the Stolen Million-mile Porsche 356

We have some terrible news for you, Petrolisti. Our good friend Guy Newmark, owner of the nearly million-mile Porsche 356 we featured recently on our site, has had that same 356 stolen. The Bali Blue 1964 356C was stolen from his garage in San Pedro, California, the night of August 17, and he’s currently searching for the car. If you’re interested in helping the search, here are some unique identifiers about the car. The VIN number is 220286, and the hubcap medallions have had the enamel rubbed off of them, leaving them with a bright bronze finish. The car has very minor tailpipe extensions, has a slight indentation on the left rear fender, and minor rust marking bubbling through the paint just forward of the driver’s door. The car also has a fawn interior and minor rock chipping on the windshield. Mr. Newmark is currently offering a $5,000 reward for the return of the car, and all of us here at Petrolicious hope the car is recovered swiftly and safely.

UPDATE: The car has been found with only under-dash wiring ripped out. Thank you so much for your help and concern.

Thanks to all who helped recover this car. Guy was devastated when it was taken.

Glad the car has been recovered I can’t imagine what it would be like to loose a car with such memories. From what I’ve seen around the web there does seem to be an increase in the number of classic car thefts (or possibly thanks to the web there are being more readily reported and the army of forum readers etc being mobilised to help find them). I know of two E Types that were stolen in a the UK and a friend of a friend had a Dino 246 GTS that was stolen from a lock up in London.… Read more »

I really do not like this “trend”. A lot of classic cars have lately been stolen from Nurburgring. Cannot understand the joys of stealing someones treasure – classic cars are so personal and very much the companion of there owners. A good thing it was found again.

Great news that the car has been recovered. If anyone’s dog is stolen, you’ll be sad no matter what. But if that dog has been with the owner for a decade, through thick and thin, you get a bit sadder no matter if you know the owner or not.
