the first (only) Tucker I've seen at a car show

A very unique interior, and this is the first time I've been able to take photos with good light

 with such a small dashboard, the radio was installed on the side of it. That shifter us normally seen in Terraplanes and a couple French cars... but is a cool looking design and might have been why it was used to sell the cars for Preston. Small and efficient, unusual enough to be eye catching, and works well with the levers on the far side of the  instrument cluster

Behind this small rear quarter panel grill, is the fuel filler door. Good hiding spot.

6 exhaust pipes and big grill for a tail panel because it has a 6 cylinder air cooled helicopter engine if I remember correctly


  1. Omigosh, that is absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't mind seeing the movie again; I haven't seen it since it was first released. Shame this car didn't take off.

  2. this is so classy

  3. this is a beautiful car, i would love to be able to at least hire it, does anyone know if anyone does this for Car Hire? would love it for my wedding in 4 months

    1. You are obviously in love to be that dreamy. No way a Tucker is going to get rented for weddings
