What if we told you that the first automobile company to pioneer breakthroughs like seat belts and safety glass wasn’t Ford, Toyota, or Mercedes, but a company you’ve probably never heard of?
The year is 1946, and since none of the Big Three Automakers have released a new model car since 1941, there was a strong desire from the motoring public for something fresh. This created a perfect storm for the “Car of the Future”.
Enter Preston Tucker, a talented car salesmen turned inventor and pioneer. His automobile vision promised and delivered several groundbreaking advances in automotive technology and safety, that later became standard.
In the end, only 51 "Tucker '48" Cars were made, and the company shuttered its doors not long after it opened them.
We will examine the rise & fall of Tucker, & how a conspiracy perpetrated by corporations, politicians, and even government officials crushed the Tucker Corporation, The Man Himself, and ultimately his revolutionary Tucker Torpedo.
Preston Tucker’s vision will outlive the physical manifestation seen in his 47 surviving steel marvels & is both fascinating and sobering, even today.
