The Devin SS in 3D-HD Video at Limerock race track
Bill Devin, proprietor of Devin Motors in Los Angeles, was a leading
designer in the kit-car business, making high-quality fiberglass body kits
for production chassis. In 1957, he was approached by Irish engineer
Malcolm MacGregor, who wanted a body kit to fit a steel-tube chassis he had
built around a Chevy Corvette V8 engine. They agreed that the chassis would
be built in Northern Ireland and then shipped to California to be bodied
and trimmed. The resulting Devin SS was well reviewed by the American
automotive press. This car is one of 14 built, and has fully independent
suspension and four-wheel Girling disc brakes. Devin, unlike many others,
made his own suspension system and differential housings.
