This looks like something Jay Leno would be interested in.

Jay would be better off buying himself another Duesenberg, IMO, this is a scam.

Copy n paste from another board...

There's occassional ads in Hemmings Motor News for a Tucker convertible for sale. Phil Egan did do some sketches for a 1950 model convertible, but both he and Alex Tremulis have stated no such car was ever built! Given that the design department was within earshot of the body knockers who were building the Tin Goose, if a one off prototype of a convertible was going to be built, I'd think that it would have been done in the same area that the Tin Goose was constructed, and Egan and Tremulis would have heard the car being built, and gone over to investigate, but Egan makes no mention of loud noises in the plant after the Tin Goose was built. Photos of the convertible have finally surfaced. As you can see, the car isn't finished, and the story I've been able to uncover is that the car started out as a 4 door body shell bought at auction by a former Tucker employee. He decided to turn the car into a convertible, but was never able to complete the car, for some reason
