'Pulp Fiction' Classic Chevy

Stolen 17 Years Ago

RECOVERED!!!

EXCLUSIVE

The famous '65 red Chevy in "Pulp Fiction" that was stolen nearly 2 decades ago has been RECOVERED ... TMZ has learned.

The car was stolen from the movie's director, Quentin Tarantino ... outside of his house and there's been no trace of it ... until this last week. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops zeroed in on a man suspected of classic car auto theft and arrested him in Southern California on Tuesday.  He was NOT arrested for allegedly stealing Quentin's Chevy, but we're told the investigation led cops to the Oakland, CA area, where they found the Chevy.

Our sources say someone had changed the VIN number on the car, but they say it's definitely the legendary Chevy where John Travolta's character crashes the car into his drug dealer's house.

And get this ... we're told cops have been trying to get in touch with Quentin to tell him the car has been retrieved ... but they haven't been able to get through.  So Hollywood.

Sources say the man who was arrested will NOT be charged with stealing the Chevy.  In fact, we're told no one will be arrested because the statute of limitations on auto theft has long since run out.

The overdose scene FREAKED ME OUT! Thank you Quentin for scaring the **** out of me as a teen. I never touched any drug besides the green.

The suspect's name is Harvey Levin. It's true! I read it on the interwebs. Why did TMZ (tm) fail to include this information? What are they hiding?

VIN= Vehicle Identification Number. Calling it a "VIN number" is redundant and makes you look stooopid.

Maybe theft has run out the statute of limitations, but how about possession of a stolen automobile?

"Statute of limitations on auto theft has long since run out."
.
Agreed. But there is no statute of limitations on possession of stolen property. What a shìt story this is.

You do NOT mess with a man's automobile. It's just against the rules.
