Photographs of the car, which is a distinctive shade of ‘NHS blue’, were shared online by West Midlands Police as officers called on anyone with information to come forward.
A force spokesperson said: “Have you seen this car? The 1992 classic blue Mini 1000 City E (reg K456 SFK) was stolen from a locked garage in Wentworth Road, Wolverhampton.
“It was taken some time between May 17 and June 30 and would have been lifted or towed because the battery was not there at the time.
“It does not have the original manufacturer color and is described as an ‘NHS’ shade of metallic blue.
“The owners are desperate to get the car back as it is a collector’s item and sentimental value. Do you have any information or have seen the mini? Please call 101.”
