Speaking of Tucker memorabilia
My late friend (and mentor in this hobby) Bill Harrison, had a 1:8th (?) scale model of a Tucker that was a styling prototype for Tucker back in the day. No idea how or when he got it but the movie folks managed to pry it away from him for a period to use in the movie. When Bill died, circa 2003, all his massive collection of toys and models, some 30,000 including this Tucker I believe was auctioned off by Bonhams & Butterfield in lots over a year's period. I managed to win some Durham Classics at one San Francisco auction. Often wonder what happened to that Tucker model.
