Tucker Memorabilia: Luggage to License Plates Updated: 5/7/2017


Similar to the Vanderbilt Cup  Races and the Long Island Motor Parkway, fans of Tucker automobiles enjoy collecting memorabilia. Several of these items will be on display on Sunday when Tucker #1044 makes its Long Island car show debut  at the Regimental Activities NAFI Auto Show in Kings Point.

Enjoy,

As for the Tucker/Banner and the reproduction; The slogan “America’s first completely new car in 50 years” is set in a different type face on the reproduction… the a’s the r’s and the s’s are especially different on the copy.
