I email from iPhone to my comeputor, then move to pictures then I can attach to foreum. I am sure there is a much better way but then you got to cut slack for grey hair. (Comes from laying under cats in the sno)

Tucker must have fired the guy who designs grills during those '65-70's machines. Expanded wire mesh, seriously? But then I have seen '69's with the cast aluminum horizontal slot grills.

Thanks for straight out the picture my computer died years ago and have been operating from the iPhone ever since. The mesh grill on the 71 kind of matches the expanded metal sides on my Tucker trailer though.

Some NOS pontoons he has along with a Fiberglass torpedo shell? I saw some tracks he was working on.

Sounds like he’s up to something...

Are there any other pictures of that one? Looks like the front is about 2-3" longer than standard and tapering down for a different grill. What's the lump on the rear for? Rear spot light?
