My only memory is from a full-page ad in the Omaha newspaper.
As a young car guy, I was blown away. A headlight that steered with the car? Huge space in the passenger compartment? Amazing safety features? Air cooled engine? I asked my Dad what this meant, & he explained that more competition and new technology was being sought in the Post-WWII economy. The Tucker offered so much & was still pretty practical. It certainly didn't have the deep pockets of Kaiser Aluminum, but what it did offer was what the US government should have been excited about.
(Thinking of the valuation of car companies, I see that Tesla's valuation is now exceeded only by Toyota!)
