A Tucker Abroad: No. 1020

Tucker No. 1020
Tucker No. 1020 is the second Tucker '48 located in Japan, but not a lot is known about it. We understand that it's owned by Shoujirou Hani, president of the Hani Corporation in Kagoshima, Japan.  The photo to the right was taken before No. 1020 was purportedly re-painted in its original maroon color in 2004.  We understand that Mr. Hani also owns one of the Ida Automotive Tucker replicas.  A soft-cover book of photos of the Hani Classic Car Collection bears a photo of the Tucker replica on its cover.
