Notes:  Mr. Rudy Schroeder won Tucker #1008 in a raffle in 1949. He kept it for a short time but had to sell it because his insurance company couldn’t insure the car. It was then sold to a Mr. Willis Jones and then sold to Mr. Les Schaeffer of Steelton, PA. Les sold it to the Imperial Palace, Las Vegas who in turn sold it to the Driehaus Collection. In 2011, Rudy Schroeder, that early owner of Tucker #1008 was re-united with the car by Mr. Stephen Murphy, Curator of the Driehaus Collection. Rudy and his son Steve got to drive #1008 and even rode to Midway Airport with their luggage in the trunk.
