Cost to restore, around $150,000, I would guess. My guess on sale price is:$280,000.

I say $1,350,000+Tax, Title, and Liscense Fees. The last one I ever saw was a blue calendar car back in about 1991. That one I think was almost a Million. It was I believe one of the first 5 or something. What a car at any rate.


In a while, Chet.

Well, Schnitz, if you're going to add in tax, title, and license fees, I might as well add on shipping...I may have to up my estimate!!

Easily over a million. If I had to guess I would say about $1,375,000.00 give or take a few thousand.

I seen a video on yahoo's video section. It was about the tucker. Pretty cool ideas it had. The center headlight turned with the steering wheel! They had designed it to have a crush proof passenger compartment. i might be confusing this with another i watched but it was a rear engine car...?
Also I think they said there was only like 50 of them made before they went under.

I'd say that one gets easily a mil or more. They are a pretty nice car imo.

50 mase and I think 48 survivors. Rear engine. Helicopter engine. Tucker was a man ahead of his time. The car had safety glass, seat belts, etc. The big three did not like him at all.

I wonder if that is an original Tucker or a 'glass replica. If I remember right someone was going to reproduce them at a quantity of 50.

Found it http://info.detnews.com/joyrides/story/index.cfm?id=144

There was an article about this very car in a recent issue of Old Car Weekly. Seems it was stored in a parking garage by one of the Tucker family members and went to RM Restoration for complete rebuild using all original parts or remanufacture of original parts. I remember saying that it will be the most "original" Tucker in existence when it is completed.... I hope my wife buys it as a Parts Car for my Street Rod for X mas.... What a surprise to see the keys in my sock.... DAVE
