Before there was a Tucker 48, there was a Tucker Torpedo.

When it comes to vehicles selling in an auction’s top-10, a Ford Model 40 generally isn’t the first model that comes to mind. While some restored examples have reached impressive heights (like the freshly restored black Model 40 DeLuxe roadster that sold at RM’s 2012 Monterey sale for $88,000), most change hands for considerably less money. In Auburn, Indiana, last weekend, a 1934 Ford Model 40 DeLuxe roadster sold for an impressive fee-inclusive price of $77,000, roughly $16,000 higher than current NADA high book value, breaking into the sale’s top-10.
