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.
