Video: Completing the Design of the Tucker Excelsior Pickup Truck Concept

Responding to our auto design sketch challenge to complete an unusual pickup truck from Preston Tucker’s archives, industrial designer Eric Strebel went the extra mile and produced a narrated video on his process.

“This week’s video is more design oriented than many of my making videos,” Strebel explains. “I explore and redesign the 1940s Tucker Excelsior concept truck. I update the design while keeping its functionality and some of its style intact. My design uses an all-electric platform while adding the functionality of pocket doors in the side of the bed along with an additional crew cab. I also discuss how to build up a sketch render on Grey paper using markers and colored pencil.”
