The AACA Museum is embarking on a most meaningful phase of its development – the renovation of the existing 5,200 square foot Cammack Gallery to create an unparalleled exhibit: the world’s largest and best-known collection of Tucker 48 automobiles, engines, mechanicals and automobilia from Tucker historian and collector David Cammack. This permanent, interactive and educational exhibit will involve visitors in the compelling story of the development of these historic vehicles and dynamically display their unique and advanced features. Beyond the cars, we will chronicle Preston Tucker’s vision, determination and struggles that are so much a part of the marque’s history.
The AACA Museum envisions the Tucker exhibit becoming a “must see” attraction for hobbyists, historians and the general public from all over the world. The Cammack Tucker Gallery design has been fully endorsed by descendants of Preston Tucker, acting as historic advisors during the build process. “The effort being put forth by the AACA team in the presentation of the Cammack Tucker collection is not only an honor to the Tucker family but also the man who had an amazing passion to preserve the history of the Tucker story” exclaimed Sean Tucker, Preston’s great-grandson.
The undertaking is in need of financial support. The fundraising campaign is underway and a new element has been introduced. The AACA Museum is now offering a special Tucker Brick that can be purchased. These bricks will be placed in front of the AACA Museum to commemorate the special opening planned for later this year. The bricks are $250. Purchasing information can be found here or by calling the AACA Museum.
Here’s a special video about the Tuckers.
