This Tucker was used as one of ten promotional cars that traveled the United States. It was sold to Joy Brothers Motors of St. Paul, MN, for $1800 on November 14, 1950, with 339 miles on it. The Tucker was stored in the basement of the Joy Bros (Packard) dealership for 18 years while tied up in an estate dispute over ownership. Allen Korbel became the first owner of the car on July 3, l968. He bought the car for $6,500 with a little over 400 miles on it. Clayton M. Stone became the next owner; it joined other antique cars he took to shows and on Sunday drives. Mr. & Mrs. Gene Cofer purchased the Tucker on December 5, 1985, with approximately 2,500 miles on it. It has since been in two additional collections.
