Back in the 1950s, fiberglass was popular as a material for constructing lightweight sports cars. Perhaps the most common example of that technology was the original "Plastic Fantastic" itself, the C1 Corvette. But fiberglass was relatively inexpensive and it allowed plenty of small automakers to sculpt it in various ways, enabling them to improve aerodynamics without having to spends a ton of money. Bill Devin was one of those small-time car makers.

From conceptcarz.com; 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.
