Default Who got the Freighter?

A 1957 Tucker Freighter just sold off Craiglist in the Reno Area. Who got it?

I could cry! They practally gave it away! And,... it's from the run of production that the Freighters that crossed the South Pole came from. Rats!

I called on it intent on going overboard and buying it. The guy told me that he had just sold it hours ago. There is another on the Reno craigslist that has a Tucker p/u body but looks like dozer tracks underneath from the same seller for $5,000.00. The freighter was priced way too cheap IMHO.

A half ton orange Suburban towing a 3 and a half ton snow cat? Is it the Tucker people themselves or an employee? I called an hour after it was posted. The seller commented about that. Being 3000 miles and 2 time zones away I figgured I didn't have a chance. Nice Picture! Nice machine too,...

I bet it is a half ton with a 3/4 0r 1 ton running gear as that engine combo would tear up the stock 1/2 ton axles.
