How about buying any new vehicle and having the distributor paint their name across it ? Good ole days!

Well i got the little tucker home today,the tracks were frozen up so i made a couple toboggans out of a fuel barrel for the pontoons.I wanted it to slide easily and not gouge up the aluminum roll off body! I chained it to the back of the Diesel lombard to get it unloaded heres a few pictures.

Nice Yankee ingenuity! That Tucker will be up and running in no time. Your support group is right here. Looking at your other projects this should be easy as logging for you.

Rode in one very similar thanks to some great friends at the meow this weekend . You are very lucky to have one back east. Fast and very cool .

I wont get to really work on it for a while, got to get to the scrapyard ,got a lot of shearing to do!My buddy Steen was taken by the banjo steering wheel,thought it would look good on his 32 ford hotrod ! I had to say "NO" !! That little tucker looks like a lot of fun wished i could have made it out . heres a few more pictures.







as you can see it needs a bit of interior work !!

Think there is a math equation sticker you had to divide it by 12 or some other random number. Tucker Experts will explain exact details better.

Thats a pretty neat gauge ! i'm thinking this dash panel was standard in something other then tuckers,its a 1 piece unit ,seems if they were made for tucker they would be close to speed instead of going up to 160!

Loggah, The gauge panel in your '48 is the same as the one in my '49 which was built in '48. They came out of Dodge trucks of the same year. When in doubt, try Chrysler light trucks for drive train parts too. Track Addict's gauge is also Dodge with a Tucker faceplate above the speedo. The mileage factor varies due to different rear end ratios and different sprocket diameters. Your banjo wheel came from the factory that way, so it is stock.

Thanks Scott, the different gear ratio,to mph on the gauge makes sense, the old guy that used to groom with it is still alive, and he said it would move right along !!! I do know that im going to have to modify the seat if im going to be able to drive it, 6'3" and 285 lbs dont fit to well, my size 14 shoe barely fits in the little floorboard! This cab is only 3' wide outside,i cant imagine how narrow a 300 series must be !!!

mr loggah, the seat is not the original one for the tucker, they were a pair of seats that tilted forward, so you can adjust them to fit your seating comfort, tucker beyond

thinking you can make them, only if you had a pattern, think, tuckerville/tuckerland could loan you a seat to copy, then you could alter to fit your needs, much easier than finding something that is almost impossible to find if not impossible to find, happy to help.

fyi again, i believe the seats were built by a local furniture manufacturer (they even have been built by tucker itself), they were a custom fit thing, not off the shelf item

Thanks for the update and photos! Congrats on freeing up the engine. You probably know this already but when you go to start that baby up take out the spark plugs and crank it over to get oil pressure first. Check for stuck valves. It's going to smoke quite a bit. I'd get it warm shut it off and let cool down. Heat cycle it a couple of three times. Not trying to tell you what to do just had these thoughts! Watching your progress!!
