DESCHUTES COUNTY, OR. (THECOUNT) — Deschutes County, Oregon man, Curt Swanson, is offering a hefty $10,000 for the return of his beloved pickup truck that was stolen over the weekend in Bend.

In a Facebook post, Swanson says the classic 62 Chevrolet C10 was pilfered from a garage in Bend where it was being stored.

Via Facebook:

I just had my 1962 classic Chevrolet C10 truck stolen from a garage in Bend, Oregon, where it was being worked on, and they captured some rough footage of the thief. I’m hoping someone can recognize him and help me recover my family heirloom. This truck has been in my family for 56 years. My father (who is 97 years old) bought it in 1965 as his work truck. When I was eight years old, my Dad sat me on his lap and let me drive it around our block (1968. Yeah I’m an old guy as well.) It was the first car I ever drove. The sentimental value here is heart-breaking. Then the truck was stolen from my Dad in 1995, and I did this same thing (I spent over a year locating and recovering it) and I finally recovered it. My Dad let me have it for my efforts, and I have been pouring my heart and soul into it since. When my son was 6- years old, I sat him on my lap and made sure it was the very first car he drove as well (he is 20 years old now) After years of pouring our hearts into it, we were at the finish line of completion of an amazing restoration and it got stolen again! I need help finding it again. Can everyone please post this everywhere they think it may help? I am offering a $10,000.00 reward for the arrest and recovery of the truck. Thank you to everyone in advance for helping us recover our family heirloom!

UPDATE: We are offering a $10,000.00 reward for the arrest and recovery of the truck! I just had my classic 62 Chevrolet C10 stolen from a garage that was working on it. I’m hoping I can find someone that has information leading to the recovery of it. So it has been in our family for 56 years. my father bought it when I was a young man and it is the very first vehicle I ever drove in my life. I’ve spent 10 years restoring it. It has an extremely high amount of emotional value attached to it. I would appreciate anyone that could repost this on any Forum about cars or old trucks that they are aware of.

If you spot the truck, do not attempt to retrieve it yourself, contact police immediately or contact Swanson via the Facebook page above.
