Museum would pay a million for Dean car

A car museum in Volo, Ill., has offered $1 million for the Porsche 550 Spyder that legendary actor James Dean was driving in 1955 when he died in a crash. The mangled sports car — one of only 90 made that year — subsequently was shown throughout the United States as part of a police safe-driving campaign. But then it just disappeared, according to a recent CNN report.

The Volo Auto Museum is observing the 50th anniversary of Mr. Dean’s death on Sept. 30 with an exhibit of artifacts from the crash. But it has only a passengere door from the Porsche. The museum says it will pay for the car after it is authenticated by George Barris, who customized the car for Mr. Dean.
