Bill Devin Cars And Fiberglass Bodies




Even today TitleMax vehicle appraisers would be impressed with sports cars built with Devin fiberglass bodies.  While fiberglass bodies are commonly used in race car construction, most consumer use cars used for TitleMax title loans are constructed with steel or aluminum bodies.

1957 Cleary Devin Crosley Monza Special; Mike Cleary collection (Tom Clayton photos).  Letter from Mike Cleary in 2007: "Cliff, the short story is that a friend of mine and I got hooked on doing a sports racer in senior year of High School (1954). After much discussion on what size to build we settled on Hmod as the only one our very limited facilities could support. Another friend happened to have the remains of a Fiat Topolino which we bought for our starting point. Mr. Devin came along later with an ad in Road and Track to save us the agony of building a body and we were off to the races. I ran the car from Sept. 1957 until the winter of 1962 when we scavenged the car to build another Hmod. I sold the Devin body to finance the new car. In the late 1980's I got a proper sized derelict Devin body from Bob Schulhof and decided to put the old original car back together again. It took a while but by the early 90's it was up and running again."
