Knowing Sr.'s obsession with weight, I bet it is only one key.

That is one way to avoid the aluminum galvanic corrosion.

Wrong Mr. L Tucker, not top heavy, Timberline had two of the twenty passenger 700 cats and never rolled one. This photo is at the only almost flat place to unload called Triangle Morane. It is 1500 vertical feet above the top of the Palmer Upper chair lift terminal. And steeper slope than the Palmer snow field. These Tuckers were purchased by Timberline Lodge in 1960 and 61.The rock in the back ground is Illumination Rock. One could easily ski down to it. Told you it was steep, maybe someone can fix this photo, not me.

Ummm, Miss PP. The Tucker isn't the star in that Sun Valley pic. That's Jackie Kennedy, John Jr, and Caroline Kennedy.

busy summer and glad it is coming to an end, pretty much ready for a new year and things getting back to kinda normal !!!

meanwhile the summer was full of new finds making their way home, free tucker Monday, Australian freighter, and a one off model 420 torpedo from Durago, Colorado.

it is either a '46, '47, but no later than '48, along with a very different grill and hood, it was powered by a Packard 6 cylinder engine with a 3 speed transmission, and a gas tank almost twice the standard size of the normally used tanks, pretty much all tuckers built up to and including '46, all had used engines and drive trains, it was and somewhat still is in sad shape, have spent the last few weeks, salvaging bits and pieces and reconstructing the front end, put on a new hoop, put a used radiator in and saved some of the original grill, along with some new bars, got the grill back to what I think it was originally, think it is savable and hope to be on the snow sometime in the near future.

yes, I have one old photo with this machine, but it is in the background, not a great picture, at least it confirms it is a tucker made machine.

what is a challenge in ID ing these early machines, is, tucker never put ID tags on machines till '49, so much is done by old photos and luck...
