in good condition without original box

A rare and beautiful scale model of the legendary 1948 Tucker Torpedo, made by Franklin Mint in the 1990's.

Preston Tucker was an entrepreneur who made a number of contributions to the vehicular word.
He designed the "Tucker Turret" (from which his fortune was made) which found success in WWII bombers.
Then, there was his controversial Tucker '48 car, so far ahead of its time that the Big Three not only noticed but also sought to quash it by ruining Tucker himself.
They killed the car but not Tucker's reputation.

Franklin Mint's tribute to this forward-thinking piece of automotive history boasts a fully carpeted interior and front storage compartment, which includes a spare tire and a set of custom-made luggage.
Under the rear deck lid is a spot-on reproduction of the pancake six (air-cooled on the prototype, but water-cooled on the production models).
There's even a prop to hold the lid open.
This model is done in "Waltz Blue,", which was Mrs. Tucker's favorite color.
Up front is the famous "Cyclops" center headlight and, on the rear deck lid, a decal of the Tucker family crest.

Unfortunally I haven't got the original box anymore, but of course it will be packed very carefully.

This lot will be send as signed parcel with insurance.
