MCDOWELL COUNTY, N.C. – A 1966 Ford Mustang that was stolen from a North Carolina family shop has been found – but not in one piece.

WLOS reported that the classic car – once valued at $25,000 – was stolen from Twisted Rod Customz in McDowell County one week ago after a garage was broken into.

An anonymous tip to the McDowell County sheriff led Fred Sult and his family to Caldwell County on Friday afternoon to pick up the car. They had to pay $1,000 to get the car and its engine removed from a tow yard.

Now it’s back home and the owners, Sult and his 5-year-old grandson Gavin, are happy but also upset that they’re only left with the body of the car and its engine.
