This $1.1 Million Tucker 48 Was Built from Two Crashed Cars and a Test Chassis

  This $1.1 Million Tucker 48 Was Built from Two Crashed Cars and a Test Chassis The "extra" Tucker may be a combination of parts from three chassis, but it's stunning. And a bargain compared to "factory" Tuckers.The Tucker production sedans were numbered from the factory starting with #1001, with the prototype simply being called the Tin Goose. The Tin Goose still exists. Two Tuckers that were not so lucky were #1027 and #1018. Tucker #1027 was heavily damaged during factory testing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway: The car spun out and rolled after its engine stalled and a tire blew out. The wrecked car was retained by the factory.

This contrasts with that of the so-called "blue chip" car market, an upscale list of collectible vehicles. From 2011 to 2016, these cars reached an abrupt peak that sent the market soaring; however, this trend has changed direction in 2017.

"The first part of that five-year period, there was a sense that if you didn't get in and get the car you wanted, you would miss out," vice president of Hagerty valuation services Brian Rablod said. "So there was this sense of urgency. Now that the market has cooled off, the urgency has gone away."

Here's a list of cars that fall into the affordable classics index. Alongside the cars is each of their respective valuations as decided on by the experts at Hagerty.
