Tucker 1010 sees light after 54 years

Recommended Posts

Bought for $1500 in 1956, driven only 603 miles, then garaged for unknown reasons (with 9800 original miles), it has recently been sold (undisclosed amount).

Mostly complete, it needs a complete re-do. Rust & mice are never mindful of history, unfortunately. Some sort of impact of unknown force poked out it's Cyclop's Eye.

Hopefully & assumedly, it will be restored, as Tuckers have now cleared 7 digits in the collector arena.

Neat to see a 'rumored' one re-debut.

This is the car that ran @ the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1950, and with a decidedly non- top end rear of 4.30:1, averaged 131.6 MPH on 3 runs.

Tuckers were damned fast cars- far exceeding anything else of their time.

I hope they restore that to lovely and pristine condition! One more Tucker would be a wonderful thing as rare as they are!
