    Rob Ida is building a Torpedo from scratch. Including the ridiculously complicated steering wheel. Rob also builds Tucker 48’s from scratch.

    from the one wikipedia search I did, they said that The Torpedo is just the marketing name for the 48.

    Well, Tucker wanted to build the Torpedo- but, since he didn’t have the time or money to build the Torpedo, the car eventually turned into the 48. (A MUCH simpler car) Tucker was never really happy with the 48. But he did draw up blueprints for the Torpedo. Rob Ida is building it to specs.
