Nice video john but you missed a third one. BRK No. 2 was upgraded around the time of the release of the Tucker movie - I think the number was 2A and I had a metallic red one. I also used to own the No. 2 in your video, but mine was just after John Hall added windows. Both of these are gone now, replaced by all seven BRK 222.

Great video, John.  While I have several earlier issues of Brooklin Tuckers, here is my collection of the most recent 222x models which started with the three David Cammack Tuckers now housed at the AACA Museum. After they were released and sold only through the museum Brooklin produced Tuckers of the remaining  factory colors. The black one with black tires replicates a black one from the factory  that was later painted yellow but was recently restored to its original black. It came from the factory with black tires. A very plain Tucker indeed. The bronze one in the David Cammack Collection actually was not a factory color but one Mr. Cammack chose during restoration because he already had a red one.

@jkuvakas @ It is, in fact a replica of the one we saw at the museum. That Christmas Jeannie had given me the set of the three Cammack Tuckers that the museum was selling at the time.

The video and pictures are great.

I love the Tucker and I have always been fascinated by the design. I have all the new version Brooklin models, plus a couple extras. I have not yet acquired any of the original versions. 

Esval issued the convertible version in both open & closed, they're nice but the Brooklin versions are the best.

@jcarnutz 

I never knew there was a convertible Tucker. Could you provide a photo of either a 1:1 version or the Esval model?

Tucker devotees contend this is not a "real" Tucker because the 1:1 was assembled from parts well after plant closure.

As I watched the film interview (Thanks, John) and then all those beautiful models (Thanks, David and Harv), I looked for mine.  This was all I could find:

But with precious little display room left, and other factors, those magnificent ones shown on the forum just aren't in my near future.  So I went to the workshop, and it's a chilly day here in the southern Appalachians.  Spaced over several afternoon hours, here's the result of some chrome tape, black wash, and just the finest touches of a couple of colors:

IMG 4851

  Well, John Roberts need have no fear, but when it's up on the shelf, it looks better . . . for now.
