You might remember Ak Miller, who raced Devin bodied cars up Pike's Peak... Dean Moon, who drag raced and ran salt flats with his Devin-bodied "Moonbeam" car... and Joe Lunati (the cam manufacturer) who ran the "Trouble Maker" drag car.

Most of the production turn-key Devins were Corvair and VW powered.
If im not mistaken Bill Devlin produced the Original Devlin with a 283 chevy engines frames were produced in Italy or Ireland then shipped to US to be placed on custom chassis ,he had to produce 100 cars same as Carrol Shelby ,but Devlin did not make requirements less than 20 were produced . they were discontinued and aftermarket made kit cars using vw and porsche 912and probably corvair chassis and engines in later years im thinking around 58-60 or close for Originals , not sure about years .if this matters .
