1955 Tucker Carioca

"Preston Tucker claimed that research had proved that from 10 to 12 pounds (4.5 - 5.5 kg) of accumulated mud, gravel and tar are carried at times under each of the four fenders of a conventionally designed car. Preston's solution to this problem was to fit his next car with cycle fenders that could be removed easily for cleaning, and thereby abet the road performance of the car.

The car was also designed with a stationary headlight in the center, this had become a trademark of a Tucker Automobile."
