Reviving & Driving Tucker #1026: Part 2
As the previous installment of our story concluded, we recognized that removing the fuel tank of Tucker #1026 was necessary. Extracting the tank posed several challenges. #1026 was the first “front tank” car, and some of the fixtures used, along with the dimensions of the space allocated, were yet to be determined. To safely extract the fuel tank for cleaning and sealing, we removed the entire front clip carefully. On a Tucker, this includes the luggage tub as well. Our team meticulously taped off the edges to protect the paint and unbolted the bumper, fenders, and tub. We slowly removed each piece to expose the fuel tank. Join us as we follow the progress on #1026.
