It looks amazingly clean inside (interior). Is that all original?

Amazing instrumentation on the dash for a ‘48, the same seen today (58 years later), Bat, Oil, Fuel, and Temp, also dual exhaust to boot, onto six outlets. This one is out of my league but appears a well thought out vehicle. Something to well consider.

I think the basic parts for the dash cluster are the same as the 1940 and 1941 Lincoln Zephyr with different graphics. The Steering wheel is 1942 Lincoln with a Tucker horn button. Also note the shift gate is very much like the 810 Cords.

Howard, I recently photographed that car in Auburn Hills, Michigan.  It will be featured in my next book, due out in June.  Tom

Great photos of that Tucker.  Where will the Tucker be located?  Can we see it?

Rog, until the fall, the Tucker will be in the Waterfront at Roslyn garage. I will be having a few “Tucker” days.

Great shots. I have numerous photos of the deep green Tucker from the Stahl Collection which I shot at the Ford Estate for my forthcoming book.  (Damsels In Design, from Schiffer Books features pioneering women designers from 1939-1959. ) Of course, the David Cammack collection at the AACA Museum is the best.

this is the first time i have ever seen the tucker photograghed from a view on a lift and also the interior.  i just came from the Russo Steele auction in scottsdale az and they had cars from the missoula museum of montana go up for sale many cheap. a 1941 red Lincol Continental Zepher 2 dr coupe with a flathead v12 was sold cheap in the 20 g range. it was completely restored and so clean you could eat off it. i thought Huge would like to know. too bad i moved out to az as i would be at the waterfront in roslyn tommorow if i could.  i have a friend who goes to rosyln often and i will tell him about the tucker on display.I would like to see the front trunk and if possible the front turning headlight assembly mechanism and hope my friend can get photos.  Is there a workshop manual available just in case i buy one and have to work on it? i am sure any mechanic will need one if called to work on it. thanks for the info. greatest tucker pictures ever seen!

And Yes Huge a two Cords were also sold at the auction and they had the same gear shifter as the Tucker as i remember and took some pictures of it.

biggest lower control arm bushing i ever seen! and held together with bolts that are of the allen type. it looks like the two big end ones have a adjustable setting for proper alignment of the front end.  strong as a TANK!

I gather that this rare auto will take its place among the Black Beast, the first Mustang and Chrysler’s Chrysler which if accurate is most fortunate for Long Island. You are a collector of very high quality cars but the way you take the time to share them with the public so selflessly is to be commended.  BIGLY.
