|Tucker No. 1016|
From our last stop, it's a short jaunt to see Tucker No. 1016 on the next leg of the Tucker Road Trip. The world-famous Henry Ford Museum is located in Dearborn, MI. The museum is located at 20900 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn, MI 48124. Check the museum website for more information.
No. 1016 is only one of the many automotive gems among the museum's holdings (and, unfortunately, is not very well displayed, in our opinion). TACA members will recall seeing it at our 2008 convention in Ypsilanti, MI. However, the Henry Ford Museum encompasses a dizzying array of automotive and cultural artifacts of American history, including Greenfield Village. Also nearby is Ford's Rouge Assembly Plant, and Preston Tucker's hometown of Ypsilanti, MI is located only a few miles to the west along I-94 (be sure to visit the site of Tucker's home at 110 N. Park St., Ypsilanti, MI).
