Hopefully it'll stay here in CA.

The fact the car was donated to the Petersen Museum leads me to believe its possibly been owned by the Frankenheimers' since day 1, because no dealer or second-tier owner would do that. Someone knew the car was special and treated it as such. Miles are pretty high for a celebrity-owned car which means, if one-owner, it was enjoyed thoroughly by the owners. Though it was last driven around 2009 probably around when Petersen Museum got the car.

Also love the color-coded steering wheel and trays on the rear door panels.
