The Tuckers are orange and the cash is green. Just my guess.

these two machines could not be more different,

the only thing that will interchange between them are the doors, pontoons and headlights, that's IT !

and yet they are only 1 serial number apart.

FYI, to find and buy the twin 322's took over 5 years, and yet they were bought within 3 months of each other, with lots dead end leads...

Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy Tucker New Year

Those are some great photos. Must have pulled some strings to get that tap handle! Might make a good gear shifter.
Those super kittens are so cool.
The 500 club had a mini meet yesterday. I'll post some photos soon.
Merry Christmas to all my sno cat friends!

Like the road pads on the orange one. Is that track factory? Looks more like dozer track than the usual Tucker offering.

First of what?

It looks like it started life as a 1938 chevy, 2 door sedan and became someone's idea of ?

IMHO, I would leave it in the wild and never talk of it again...ugh
