Pics: Curtis, what an incredible post! Wonderful story as well.
Your post should be forwarded to Eric Breslow, president of TACA (Tucker Automobile Club of America). They have a publication called “Tucker Topics” published several times a year. That’s really interesting stuff you have posted.

An interesting footnote; that yellow Tucker pictured by my guess is #1041 which came off the actual assembly line painted black and was fitted with black tires. It was at some point repainted yellow and white walls were fitted. It spent much of its life in that guise until sometime not too long ago it was restored to its factory condition, black with black tires. A documentary video on YouTube tells the story.
(I have tried to post the YouTube video from my iPhone but it doesn’t work. Perhaps John Kuvakas can come to our aid. It’s an interesting story of #1041.)
