FBI and the Department of Homeland Security searching for old Corvette

Christian Fernsby |
A recovery effort involving all law enforcement agencies in Florida along with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security is in place to locate a stolen, irreplaceable vintage car, announces Lou Pendas.


The 1954 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is pearl white with red interior and a tan top.

The car is an extremely rare specimen of this model and it spent nearly forty years as a showroom display at a Chevrolet dealership.

The car was taken recently from an Orlando suburb in late December 2019.

It was last seen with a Mecum Auto Auctions rear plate and an NCRS front plate.

Owner of the vehicle, Lou Pendas manages The Pendas Law Firm, a statewide personal injury law firm.

The search for this stolen car was quickly escalated due to the nature of its limited, nearly one-of-a-kind status.

"This pristine Corvette has been a treasure of mine and it's important that I make every effort possible to locate it," said Lou Pendas, owner.

"It's a rare and very special car, a true time capsule that has been preserved for decades.

"I would be grateful for any help in recovering this car."
