I would like to find a source for Devin parts. If you have any, post it here. If you have parts you want duplicated before you break them, post it too.

There were about 50 different molds & combinations of wheel base & track width from what I've read. I don't know if the doors & hood & trunks are interchangeable or not. But I have access to a set of molds for an SS model (actually the whole car molds). I have the original body & am going to build it using a Spitfire running gear.

Does anybody know a ballpark price for a 1963 Devin D kit on a VW chassis? I know where a partially built one is, but, I have no idea what it would be worth? The widow of the owner might be willing to sell it, but she doesn't know what it is worth either?

Is this Devin for sale in Cincinnati?

Is there anyway to post pics on this forum. i have a car that some tell me is a Devin, but I am not sure. It has no doors and no humps on the dash. It is similar however to a "D".
Thanks, Steve
