At the end of the day, you’re not going to find a prettier ride at this price: a very reasonable $21k sticker (as of press time) for a 1958 Devin SS.

Devins are the brainchildren of one American Bill Devin, who produced some serious fiberglass body kits (and a few complete cars) under the name Devin Enterpries from 1955 to 1964. They were bred for the track, with the top-quality SS model smoking even Ferraris and Maseratis in its prime.

This one-piece, hand-laid fiberglass body was sourced and then built to completion nearly 15 years ago by one Scott Zerby, who picked it up from a collector. Zerby raced the car in the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen and Kohler International Challenge at Road America, and it remains in perfect working order, with a 331 ci small-block V8, Super T10 4-speed gearbox and 450 horsepower under the hood. Just a few hundred miles have been put on the odi in the past two years, and the cockpit — with its integrated fiberglass bucket seats and Period Stewart-Warner gauges — is a gleaming ode to the golden age of racing.

Devin was known as the “The Enzo Ferrari of Okie Flats.” He was said to be "crazy like a fox,” with an “unerring eye for the ridiculous.”

That could be you … even if only on the weekends.
