Delwyn Mallett's totally unique 1952 356 Coupe was stolen last night. It is chassis number 11176 and has many unique features. It has almost certainly been stolen professionally. Note the full fender skirts all round, the through the hood fuel filler, the unique hinged engine grill on the rear. UK registration is UXY 70.

Classic Porsche magazine:
THE CAR HAS BEEN FOUND, INTACT!!! Won't go into details, but just to say a massive thank you to everyone for spreading the word. It appears to be undamaged, so that is a relief. We think whoever stole it was either scared by all the on-line publicity, or was simply waiting to see if the car attracted any Police attention due to a tracking device being operative... Beers all round tonight – thanks everyone. This has shown the true power of the Internet, and proved beyond all doubt the closeness of the Porsche & VW communities. :-)

Fantastic news, I'm well happy for the guy.

I hope there is some CCTV on the place it was parked and they catch the theiving scum.

Delwyn is a big Tatra fan also, and puts a lot of time and effort into the Tatra Register UK, the UK club for us Tatra owners.

His Porsche is fanatastic, and his Tatra T87 even more so.

I'm pleased his car is safe again.:thumbup:

These incidents are worrying for everyone with valuable classics. Its no surprise that many, rightly or wrongly, keep their cars hidden and well locked away.

Running nifty since 1950… the King of Volkswagens:beer: Why not make friends with this famous little VW – he's on facebook!

1956 VW Beetle, 1962 Morris Minor, 1968 VW Beetle (Old Blue), 1972 Morris Mini, 2005 MGTF

Blue, blue, Electric Blue, that's the colour of Old Blue!
