Farber awarded the franchise for the 1948 Tucker. The Tucker was like no other auto previously produced. It featured many safety innovations, including the first pop out windshield, padded dash, passenger crash chamber, and a center headlight which turned with the steering wheel. Powered by a helicopter engine mounted in the rear and capable of sustained speeds of 120 mph.
