Tucker Historical Collection
A permanent exhibit featuring the museum’s 1948 Tucker traces the short history of the Tucker Corporation and Preston Tucker’s “Car of the Future.”
The radically designed Tucker still draws attention today with its rear-mounted helicopter engine, pop-out safety windshield and center headlight which turns with the steering wheel.
The Tucker Automobile Club of America established the Tucker Historical Collection and Library at The Gilmore in 2000 as the national repository of the Tucker Archives. Guest can peer into a faithfully re-created 1940's Tucker Sales Office, reminiscent of what you may have found at Tucker Corporation or at one of its dealers nationwide. You may just imagine that Preston Tucker has just left, possibly to go down to the Engineering or Sales Departments to check on his project. In the “showroom” exhibit, you can locate the dealer nearest you and “place your order today”!
