Actually that picture was taken at Soda Springs , Cal . I recognize the hotel and the railroad track in the background . I have been there many times . It is the same road that will take you to Serene lakes in placer county .

Hi Glacierparkbus

Thanks soooooo very much for sharing all the great old Tucker photos. I've been very busy with work and home stuff and have been away from the forum for awhile.

I thought I had a pretty good knowledge of Tucker products before - but I had no idea of some of the prototypes they experimented with that you have shared here.

Keep 'em coming

Thanks again!!

Mark

Very interesting!, dual wet disc brake steering, almost a Delorean style track and
Body just needs gull wing doors. Thanks Jinn!

Almost looks like like top driven sprocket above the track, positioning of the three guys in the picture would hide it.
Large V8 engine

That machine would have a extremely low center of gravity and possibly was built for summer or dirt travel. With the top rear mounted drive to have the less ammount of debris. I wonder of it still is? Would make a nice museum piece

Thanks for the post

I was thinking the same thing,... and with those grousers it would own icy sidehills. Probably would be less fun in deep powder.
not sure of the vintage but i am thinking this would predate the Kristi machines?
again.... thank you!! Jinn :)

Amazing photos, it appears the one disc is a clutch and one is a brake the dual disc brake set is receiving its fluid from internally which would indicate it to be a rotating group

Would love to find this machine if it's still out there? What a great find


Thanks

PS. Noticed the idler say H & K. Most likely Holden and ?

This is great! I feel like we are on a guided tour of the evolution of the design. the second and last pic are obviously not part of that design but as a transitional track they tie the two design together and lead us to the modern track. Do you have any further information on the Bobcat? Was it just a design project or was it designed for a specific application?
The leaf springs in the front and center positions are intriguing,the pins seem very small for the sort of loads that would be expected. I wonder how the rear point was articulated? it appeares to be a square tube- rigid from the frame with some form of articulation at the beam.

need ....
more...
info...

:)

Thanks! it looks like the square tube might be a travel limiter to prevent the beam ( and track ) from moving too far away from the drive sproket.
Do you know what became of this machine?
