"Only one person knows the buyer, and that's the guy he was on the phone with," said Sean Kiernan, who put his father's beloved Highland Green Mustang on the auction block in Kissimmee, Florida, on Friday. "Eventually, it'll come out. But right now, no one knows. Only Frank. Frank is the only one trusted to know."
