The Devin Story

Bill Devin was a pioneering California exotic car dealer and sports car racer. In 1955, he took an impression from a friend's Ermini roadster that was bodied by Carrozzeria Scaglietti. Soon, he began selling a fiberglass replica that was very similar to the Scaglietti body on the 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza. Using an array of modular molds, Devin cleverly created bodies to fit chassis from 78 to 106 inch wheelbases and tread widths from 40 to 70 inches.

The quality was excellent, the lines superb and with a little fiberglass work, a Devin body could be made to fit just about any chassis. In the Fifties, dozens of sports/racing and street-legal two-seaters were built using Devin bodies, including Dean Moon's bright yellow "Moonbeam" Bonneville land speed record car, A.K. Miller's various Pikes Peak Hillclimb racers and the three famous Echidna road racers that are still winning vintage races today.

The DEVIN Body Offered

This particular Devin body was never fitted to a chassis, though it is sized to fit an 86-88 inch wheelbase, tread width of 56-58 inches in the front, 54-56 inches in the rear.
In 2009, it was given a custom rolling aluminum frame for intended exhibition at Amelia Island Concours.
As it was 60 years ago, this iconic Devin body is ready to serve as a unique display or blossom into a stylish sports car special.
