1948 Tucker Model 48

Coming 2015

Model 48
Exterior Color:
This is 1 of 4 fiberglass replica Tuckers built for use in the movie Tucker; The Man and His Dream. The Tucker car has become one of the most sought after and expensive cars around. They have exceeded Duesenberg prices. With only 50 ever built and the incredible back story behind the car, its no surprise. This movie Tucker was built for the scene that depicted car # 1027, which rolled over at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway while participating in a 24 hour endurance test. At 3:00 AM on or about October 18, 1948, chief engineer Eddie Offutt was behind the wheel of Tucker No. 1027 when it spun out and rolled twice into the infield. The car's safety features (including the pop-out windshield) functioned exactly as designed and Offutt suffered only a bruised elbow. For this scene a total of 3 cars were used, a fiberglass pre-crash version with no body damage, a modified Studebaker which was actually driven and rolled by a stunt driver and this post-crash version which replicated the damage of car #1027. The fiberglass body was fitted on a Ford LTD chassis. Volo Auto Museum acquired this car which had been dismantled and sitting in storage for over 20 years and is having it restored to its movie used appearance. Restoration is expected to be completed by late 2015.
