I believe this is the twin turbo Tucker replica that Rob Ida was creating. Keep the dream alive!  I hope this becomes a reality for others to appreciate.

Easily found by Google search. It’s Tucker 1034. It is newsworthy because it will be auctioned off by Gooding & Company in Scottsdale on Jan. 17-18, 2020.

It is one of the most desirable Tuckers because (a) it was completed at the factory before production halted; (b) it is one of only 12 painted Waltz Blue; (c) it has survived without needing a comprehensive restoration, and with its original upholstery; and (d) every one of its former owners is known.

This is Tucker # 1034. This Tucker was used as one of ten promotional cars that traveled the United States. Chassis 1034, was one of the few more-desirable examples that was actually assembled by the Tucker factory before it closed. Tucker # 1034 is one of only 12 finished in the attractive Waltz Blue Metallic. Tucker code #200 “Waltz” Blue. This highly original car has been driven fewer than 6,200 miles.This car still has its original interior upholstery, and has never required a comprehensive restoration.This car is going to Auction in Scottsdale Arizona. The auction will be held on January 17 and 18, and estimates say that this Tucker will fetch between $1.75 and $2.5 million.

Would this be Rob Ida’s Tucker replica??

This is Tucker #1034, formerly owned by Gene and Juanita Cofer of Tucker, GA. I first visited them there in the 80’s and Gene was kind enough to give me my first 100 mph ride in a Tucker. That same day I visited Tucker #1015 in nearby Stone Mountain, GA. Exciting day!
