The turquoise 1962 Ford Anglia, which bares the registration 7990 TD and is not in drivable condition, vanished from South West Film Studios in St. Agnes on Wednesday night.
A local police office says, "The thieves may not have known its connection with the films and just thought it was a classic car, or it may have been a Harry Potter freak."
Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman P.C. Baxter Provan adds, "For those who have not seen the Harry Potter films, this is the car that flies in the movie and is very well known.
"It is believed that the vehicle could not have been driven, therefore it is suspected that it would have to have been towed or lifted from the scene."
In J.K. Rowling's book and the subsequent films, the car is driven by Potter's best pal Ron Weasley after his father Arthur Weasley transformed a normal vehicle into the magical motor.
