The Tucker 48 is one of the most legendary cars out there. Only 51 were produced by Preston Tucker before the company imploded for various reasons; one of which was an SEC investigation for which he was later exonerated.

The example show here is Tucker #1028. It’s located at the Tupelo Automobile Museum in Elvis Presley’s Mississippi birthplace. The rear-engine car is displayed with its doors, trunk, and hood open to allow curious visitors a good look at the upscale interior touches, in particular the side-mounted push button radio and padded dashboard.
