Practically New 1948 Tucker For Sale

As seen on the Hemmings blog, for a mere $1.1 million, you too can now own what is essentially a brand new, original 1948 Tucker Model 48, a/k/a the Tucker "Torpedo."  Tucker only produced 51 of these vehicles before stopping production, and only 47 are known to exist.  This 48th vehicle was assembled from authentic Tucker components and a drive train that were either salvaged from other Tuckers or never used.
