A stolen Model T has been returned after its owner agreed not to get police involved in the handover.

The 1926 car was stolen from a storage area in Flamborough sometime between March and June 20, according to Hamilton police, who said it was likely taken using a trailer.

On Tuesday, police say, a representative of the car's owner was called by a man who didn't identify himself, but said the car could be returned if police were kept out of the deal.

An agreement was reached and the green and black classic was picked up by the representative near Safari Road and Brock Road Thursday.

Police thanked the public and media for sharing information about the car "which is believed to be integral in creating pressure for its return."
