1948 Tucker Automobile Number 10. Hidden away in a damp, musty old garage in Auburn, WA, unfairly sentenced to nearly 60 years of deplorable solitude, painfully decomposing...

      The last I heard, 48 of the 51 known Tuckers were still roadworthy. Is this one of the three that's unaccounted for?

      Look when they say there was only 51 Tuckers built that's all Tucker himself built the shells frames engines and everything the build about a hundred more cars were sold it's called tooling whoever bought all the tooling for the factory has enough s*** to build about a hundred more cars just like that guy back East who bought all the tooling for the Auburn Factory and now he has Auburn Parts out the ass same with whoever bought all the tooling for the AMC company someone out there has the stuff to build another Tucker just registering it would be the hard part

      At least somethings are "easily" replaced...with items from other sources..includong the engine. The steering wheel, rear taillights,door buttons etc being from mass made cars of other companies.

      The rest can be reproduced if they are beyond repair from casting of other Tuckers and a range of knowledge from various folks that know the cars inside out.

      Rapid prototyping will allow for more precise restoration too.

      Must be fun to restore a vehicle like this....not like your gonna find parts in a book or something, I'd imagine that you would have to fabricate everything, even engine parts...

      I lived 3 miles from now deceased JOHN LEMMO IN Peninsula Oh.

      Was in his basement museum.
      Car is now in another museum
      John found the car in a backyard in PA. Then brought it to ohio and restored it sparing no expense.

      Incredible. I wonder if its worth restoring or best kept in what original form it sits in.

      FROM WIKIPEDIA-After 50 years stored in a barn near Tacoma, Washington Tucker #1010 was sent to auction in January 2011 via Gooding and Co in Scottsdale, AZ for a starting bid price of $750,000. Reports and photos indicate the engine was seized, with rust damage throughout the vehicle and some minor exterior parts missing, including original hubcaps. Major restoration is necessary.

      This is very restorable rust wise, but trying to find the cyclops headlight might be a little hard!

      I think there is another video on this car. I don't remember the exact title but, there was a discussion. Apparently the buyer gave her $400,000. The buyer sent two guys to somewhat put it back together. The car was fairly complete. It was loaded on a tilt bed and eventually sold at barret-jackson as is for $750,000. Well I think they washed it.
      A group of car restorers bought it for a project. I am not sure what happened then.
