The Car of Tommorow - The Tucker Torpedo 48 / 4th of 50 (Toyota Automobile Museum)

January 21, 2014

So, this is a Tucker 48; the fourth production version. These vehicles are so well documented that I'm able to say that this one rolled out of the factory as a slivery-gray car.

This Torpedo Sedan was built in 1948. It has a 5,473cc flat 6 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
