Being a third generation Tucker fan, my families connection to Tucker started in 1947. My grandfather owned a dealership for Tucker in NYC. Even though the car company died, my grandfathers love for the car and the faith in Preston Tucker never did. He lived the rest of his life wanting a Tucker but never did get one. My father and I decided to create a car for him from scratch when he was in his early eighties. Unfortunately, my grandfather passed away just as we finished the car. He never took delivery of the car as he was in Fla when we finished the car in NJ. He planned to come up soon and see the car but it didn't go that way. We used the Handmade Tucker in his funeral. Our family has maintained a relationship with the Tucker family. We are now working on a few Tucker related projects with the Tuckers. Every week, Sean Tucker (Preston's Great grandson) comes to my shop and we work on my new handmade Tucker. Sean not only brings the Tucker name to the project but also experience and knowledge. He is an Automotive Engineer currently working for Volvo and Mack Truck. Below is a wooden buck that we made of the Tucker Torpedo. The Torpedo is the car that was designed but never built. It was the style that generated the interest and fueled the Tucker 48 sedan that we all know of. It has never gone beyond renderings and a scaled model. We are currently building this car from aluminum and want to bring it to life.
