'48 Tucker Convertible
I don't believe the car ever existed. I say it is a fantasy. I have and read cover to cover, all 3 books written about the history of the Tucker. Some of the people interviewed and the writer of the first book published were there through it all. There is no mention of a convertible in all 3 books. So I'm not a believer that there ever was a convertible.

#1 The Indomitable Tin Goose, Charles T. Pearson, published 1960
#2 Design & Destiny: The making of the Tucker Automobile, Philip S. Egan, published 1989
#3 Preston Tucker and his Battle to Build the car of Tomorrow,Steve Lehto & Jay Leno, published 2018
