The daring dream of Preston Tucker produced one of the most revolutionary cars ever built, but the young company was shattered before it could ever get off the ground.
Just after World War II, Preston Tucker wanted to be the first automaker to introduce an entirely new car, not just a touched-up version of a pre-war model.
Tucker was determined to see his vision made real, and he obtained financial backing and set up shop in an old Dodge plant. The car he produced was a wonder. Unlike any other car ever built, the Tucker truly was a new approach to automaking. Every aspect of the vehicle was thought out-every innovation justified. TUCKER tells the compelling story of this ill-fated machine and the man behind it. Get an up-close look at some of the 53 cars that were made before the company folded, and revisit the government investigation that brought the dream to an end-despite finding no evidence of wrong-doing!
It's the story of a man who dared to dream the impossible dream and paid dearly for it-and a remarkable auto that might have transformed a nation of car-crazy consumers.
