|Email from Ole Anderson
to Jim Huston re: this car's body:
"There is some question
of what the body actually is, Devin, Byers or maybe an El Toro by Fred
Baker. Since no-one can say what it is, I have entered the
car at this year's Monterey Historics as a Devin. Too late to try to confuse
matters by changing the name."
Response from Jim Huston:
"Itís a Devin for sure.
(Donít forget Ė Iím the President Of the Devin Club & Registry.)"
From Ole Anderson:
From Ole Anderson (10/24/06): "My special turned out
to be a Byers after all. But, probably made by Victress, which company
bought the molds from Jim Byers and kept making those bodies under the
Byers name. All measurements fit a Byers CR90 to a T. Devin
bodies were made for smaller cars with shorter wheelbases (86 inches).
They're "lumpier" with pods over the instrument panel and molded-in seats.
The Devins have doors, as well."
