Members of the public urged to contact police with stolen classic car sightings

templateheaderimage11072012134248Officers from North Surrey CID are appealing for information after a classic sports car was stolen from a property in Staines-on-Thames.

The car was last seen parked on the driveway outside an address on Hithermoor Road, Stanwell. It is believed that the vehicle was taken between 12.30am and 2.30am on Monday, 21 July.


The distinctive vehicle has been described as being a Red MGB 2 seater Roadster with a black fabric roof. On the rear boot of the vehicle there is a metal and wooden luggage shelf. It has silver spoke alloy wheels and black leather seats with red piping.

The car is a 1964 Mk1 with distinctive door handles not featured on later models. It has a small scuff on the near side front wing around three quarters of the way along from the front and 3 small scratches on the left side of the bonnet.

The car registration number is CPC790B. It has VIN number GHN3/36113 and engine number 186A/VH/747.

Officers would like to speak with anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around the time the offence was committed.

Police Constable Chris Evans, said: “The stolen vehicle is  classic sports car – given its fairly unique nature and the niche market for selling it on, I urge anyone that has been offered a car matching this description or with a questionable registration plate or engine number to contact police.

“Similarly, we are keen to hear from any witnesses who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at the time of the offence. The car is very loud starting up so it is possible that it was pushed off the driveway.

“Anyone who may have seen this distinctive car being driven since, is also urged to call 101. Any information could prove vital to the investigation and lead to the much cherished vehicle being reunited with its rightful owner and the offenders being brought to justice.”

Anyone who may have information which may help Surrey Police is urged to contact Surrey Police either by using our online reporting system found at or calling 101 quoting reference 45140060726.

Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
