Fans of the Tucker '48 know that the Tucker Corporation produced a total of 51 vehicles during it's brief lifetime: the "Tin Goose" prototype and 50 "pre-production" models, serial numbered 1001 through 1050. Of these original 51 vehicles, 47 still exist today.
Beginning next month, we'll be presenting a brief survey of the stories of the 4 Tucker '48s that did not survive into the 21st century, based upon an excellent article by TACA President Jay Follis from the October 2010 issue of Tucker Topics. See you next month!
