The futuristic car was of course the brainchild of Preston Tucker, a man who was part visionary and part snake oil salesman. Designed by George Lawson and Alex Tremulis, the Tucker really was quite advanced in its day.
The cars were designed to be safe, with things like pop-out windshields and that cyclops middle headlight that turns with the front wheels. It also had a roll bar built into the roof and a padded dashboard.
The slideshow below has my usual mediocre photos of the Tuckers that I’ve seen, along with some scans of Tucker brochures, ads, and magazine articles. You can just watch them here, or click this link for a better version.
