Does anyone know if there was ever a model made of the 1948 tucker torpedo. My guess is no since its such a rare car

Modelhaus has a resin kit of the Torpedo available, and Franklin Mint released a diecast version...as far as I know, those are your only two options in 1:24~1:25

I believe that a die-cast model in 1/18th scale of the Tucker was also made.

Here's a few pictures of Tucker I took at the AACA  museum a few weeks ago . They have a nice Tucker section.

48 Tucker 1001, the first Tucker off the production line.

It was indeed Maisto, I had one in Waltz Blue. It was made in the late '90's

I see the 1:24 scale Franklin and Danbury Mint Tuckers on Ebay starting at $20 and up.
