Description

1959 Devin SS Histoirc Drag Car VIN SS109. This is the original Dean Bontrager built/campaigned Devin SS Drag Car. Bontrager purchased the Devin mold from his employer, HMB Fibreglass, widened it to accomodate a set of big pie crust M&H Slicks, and built a 426 Dodge, Dual Four, Max-Wedge with a 727 push-button automatic transmission and terrorized the midwest drag strips in the early 60's. Notable Devin-bodied dragsters were this car, SS-109, Joe Lunati's "Trouble Maker" (later sold to Ed Neal who also raced it) and Dean Moon's "Moon Beam". This car is a piece of Drag Racing history complete with photos of the original "build" by Bontrager, photos of the car in action, photos of the car in front of Bontrager's home and business, Chrondeck Time Slips in the mid 11's, still on the original Devin SS Kansas title indicatng Chassis Number #109, and written documentation from Dean Bontrager. The car is a rolling chassis missing only the drivetrain and a few miscellaneous components. A relatively simple restoration. Priced at $20,000 USD o.b.o. Trades considered for exceptionally nice, running, driving, high performance drag, rat rod, or muscle cars.
