Any time you see a Tucker, it is cause for occasion, but this Tucker is more special than most. It was actually the test chassis for Tucker’s automatic transmission. According to Silodrome, it was only a partially completed vehicle at the time of Tucker’s bankruptcy. Through the decades, it changed hands multiple times before finally being completed by Martin Donaldson, a Tucker Expert.
The car was later restored Troy, MI-based Classic & Exotic Service. It is now part of an upcoming Auctions America event, and is crossing the auction block on Saturday, April 2, 2016. It’s been estimated that it could go for anywhere between $950,000 and $1,250,000. Given the historical provenance of this car, that could be a steal.
