DiMora Brings World’s Only Tucker Convertible to Beverly Hills

Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance Featured Preston Tucker's Experimental Classic

On Father's Day, DiMora Motorcar brought 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 Tucker Convertible

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.
