First of all, it's a Studebaker not a Tucker. Secondly, ALL Tuckers are accounted for. There are records of which ones still exist, which ones don't, and the ones that don't are on those records as well as to what fate they met. And third, $70,000??? Where did that figure come from? Totally restored Tuckers have fetched upwards of 2 million at Barret-Jackson.

That is not a Tucker at all .The front of the Tucker has a LARGE hole in the center of the hood . It is a 4-door Studebaker 1947-50

This is a rear shot of a 1948 Studebaker . Tuckers have a large rear grille opening "opera windows" behind the rear doors tail lights on top of the rear fenders the window opening is longer on a Tucker & not split by chrome . If you don't belive me look at

My father owned a Tucker in Calif. This is a tucker. No suicide door. It is bent upward and open regular. It has a crome strip down center front window. Has holes in hood where third light went. This is definite a Tucker. I am 66 and saw this car new. Saw it driving sitting in yard and from all angles. Also another on in same town as we and saw it every day. If I offend not ment to but clear a Tucker. Scott

Hard to say she is pushed out of shape. I guess it is a 1948 Studebaker Commander Land Cruiser Sedan by the shape of the trunk & suicide rear door shape & chrome rear window trim.....
