DENVER - Police are trying to solve the mystery of who stole a rare hood ornament from a 1932 Plymouth PB Roadster at the Forney Museum of Transportation in Denver.
Museum officials were stunned and outraged when they realized someone had swiped the ornament, a silver sculpture of a woman, from the hood of the equally rare yellow convertible last week
"It's a wonderful running, driving vehicle," Christof Kheim, the museum's executive director, said of the elegant car.
"The '32 Plymouth PB Roadster, very few were built to begin with, and there are believed to only be about nine of them that survive today," Kheim said.
"It's a shame," Kheim said of the theft. "They're not just harming the museum, but they're harming the exhibits that are here for everyone to enjoy. There's a few bad apples out there that ruined it for everybody else."
"We just want what belonged to the car returned," he added.
Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call the Denver Police Department.
