The Petersen Crew Takes a Ride in The Wildest Hot Rod You've Ever Seen!
The parking structure at The Petersen Automotive Museum always has really
interesting cars show up, including this wild horseless carriage based on a
real Studebaker carriage. The entire drive train is located forward of the
pivot point. The middle wheels are the drive wheels. Throttle, brake, and
steering controls are all hydraulic. The pivot is a ball joint on a tubular
control arm with a coil-over shock!
Tucker #1038 at the 2008 TACA Convention in Ypsilanti, MI
This is a brief video of Tucker #1038 being driven at the 2008 Tucker
Automobile Club of America, Inc. convention in Ypsilanti, MI (the location
of Tucker creator Preston Tucker's Home and the site of the construction of
the prototype "Tin Goose"). This also features TACA member Kit Fox's ride
in the car that he won in the TACA auction before the car is due to be sold
by RM Auctions in August 2008.
The Tucker was built in Chicago in 1948 by Preston Tucker. Only 51 cars
were produced including the 1947 prototype "the Tin Goose" before Tucker
was forced to cease production after being sued on charges of fraud.
Preston Tucker won the trial, but production never resumed. Of the original
51 produced plus car #1051 assembled after the trial, 47 cars still exist.
For more information on the Tucker and its creator please visit the Tucker
