Hemmings Nation, it’s time once again to keep your eyes peeled. Bob and Terri Dover of Anna, Illinois, emailed us to let us know that their 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible was stolen from their garage last Wednesday night. Terri provided this quick description:
The car is a red 64 SS Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu with a white convertible top; red vinyl interior. The colors are true to the vin # and the cowl numbers. The vin # is 45867K180037. It has a 327 engine and a muncie 4 speed transmission. It had Illinois antique plates: 4 USNU. We kept the car original with minor modifications, such as an edelbrock carborator and SS Cragar wheels. I also had a small 50-60s suitcase in the truck to look the era.
From the police report she provided, it sounds like this might have been a planned theft: A neighbor reported seeing a van in his driveway earlier that evening, and seeing the driver of that van scan the area with binoculars. But as we proved when the Miner family’s Corvette and Camaro were stolen earlier this year, we have legions of sharp-eyed Hemmings readers who will keep a steady outlook for this Chevelle until it’s back in the Dover family’s garage. Let’s hope that day comes sooner rather than later.
If you think you’ve seen this Chevelle, let us know or call the Union County (IL) Sheriff’s Department at 618-833-5500.
