CALGARY, CANADA – Kenneth Jelley calls his classic Corvette his pride and joy. He even gave it a nickname — Betsey.
But about week ago, Jelley found his car had vanished. He reported it stolen and police are asking for the public’s help to locate the rare vehicle.
The red 1962 Chevrolet Corvette was taken from the 9600 block of Bonaventure Drive S.E. sometime between 7 p.m. on July 12 and 5 p.m. the next day, police said.
The car was parked in an outdoor lot, covered in a tarp and padlocked. Investigators are examining the padlock, which they believe thieves cut off and left behind.
Jelley, 73, has owned the rare convertible for over 40 years. The car had just 54,000 miles on it.
