World’s Only Tucker Convertible

Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance to Feature Preston Tucker's Experimental Classic

Palm Springs, California – This Father's Day, DiMora Motorcar will bring the only Tucker Convertible ever built to the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance in Beverly Hills, California.

Tucker Corporation produced 36 four-door Tucker sedans before the company folded on March 3, 1949. Using partially completed vehicles and parts from the factory, an additional 16 Tuckers were completed over the next several years.

The experimental two-door Tucker Convertible was in development when the factory closed. In the past year, it was finally completed by Benchmark Classics of Middleton, Wisconsin. Speaking of the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance, Benchmark President Justin Cole said, "I am thrilled to partner with Sir Alfred DiMora to present the Tucker Convertible alongside some of his beautiful custom motorcycles."

At the January 2010 Russo and Steele Auction in Scottsdale, Nevada, bidding on the Tucker Convertible stopped at $1.4 million, which did not reach the reserve price. The vehicle is now available for sale. Interested buyers are invited to contact Alfred DiMora.

The Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance runs from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 20, on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. The event is free and open to the public.
