Tucker No. 1035 on the Move!

As reported to us by Tiago Songa on January 20, 2011, via the Portuguese-language Taiadablog, Tucker No. 1035 has been removed from the Museo do Automovel de Caçapava in Brazil. Apparently, the entire collection has been removed by local authorities since it is now the property of the city of Caçapava. It seems that the collection--including its "star," No. 1035--are to be "cleaned and sanitized."  This is the first time in nearly 40 years that these cars have seen the light of day!  See the blog post for the latest photos of No. 1035.

UPDATE 1/23/11 9:25 AM: Photos of No. 1035 have also been posted on the TACA Facebook page, courtesy of Jason Vogel.
