“NEW YORK (CNN/Money) – An Illinois auto museum is offering $1 million for the car in which actor James Dean died in 1955. The car’s whereabouts are currently unknown.
Dean crashed the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder on Sept. 30, 1955 on a California highway. The badly wrecked car was purchased by car customizer George Barris, who created the customized 1949 Mercury that Dean drove in the movie, ‘Rebel Without a Cause.'”
