Someone Was Lucky,

when the owner decided to sell this Trucker to him,

 15 years ago, Mark Lieberman located one in a barn in Ohio. Tucker #1044, the car company Preston Tucker was responsible for 51 cars being built, of those, we know that 47 "Tucker '48s" have survived,

so you can understand that Mark Lieberman who owns Nostalgic Motoring, where he buys and sells collector cars and also helps restore them was delighted when the owner eventually agreed to sell it to him, a real barn find, so how much is it worth? well a figure of $3 million is being banded about, 

this one went for $2.1 million according to this article, and in 2013, one restored Tucker, #1043, set the record for a Tucker sale at $2.915 million, now where was I when barn finds were being given away? well I guess it helps if you have a barn first!
