How often do you get to see a Tucker? There are only 47 that exist, out of a total of 51 that were either built by Preston Tucker or assembled from remaining components after his company failed. Of those 47, many are held in private collections. According to the Tucker Automobile Club of America, fewer than 20 are on public display (their list is slightly outdated). So seeing a Tucker is not a common thing to do. Almost of the Tuckers that you can see are in static museum displays. One reason why I hang around at the end of car shows and related events is that you can even get to see trailer queens driven, if only to their trailers. I suppose that was the case with Tucker 1015, the 15th Tucker made, which is owned by Ted Stahl’s foundation and was on display in front of the Automotive Hall of Fame, in Dearborn, Michigan. After the event I was able to shoot some video as Stahl’s representative drove the car around the parking lot of the Hall of Fame and the adjacent Henry Ford Museum to a flatbed trailer parked in front of the former Henry Ford Academy. The AHoF was hosting an event for the Eyes On Design car show introducing the official poster for the 2013 show, an annual Father’s Day event held at the Eleanor and Edsel Ford estate just north of Grosse Pointe. Artist Steven Macy’s poster portrays Tucker #15 in front of the carriage house at the Ford home.
