I am,Here is why------
One of the men that worked for Tucker in the Fabrication,Concept dept.All companies have one .said he was working on a convertible.When everything hit the fan with the Tucker Corp.,he was promised what ever was left from the dept.if the company should fold.It did and he held on to the car or pieces for a while,never did anything with the project ,sold it to someone else and it ended up much later with the IDA Brothers which finished the concept.I spoke with them.I also spoke with Michael Tucker and he said the family didn't believe it existed and would not endorse anyone making a model of it.Even the Tucker that we all know of isn't the Tucker that Preston Tucker really wanted to put in to production, but because of pressure and attacks by the big 3 had to come up with something.When the employee that worked in the Fab shop was interviewed and he said they were working on a convertible ,I believe him.
