I think this was Jeff Cromeen's car out of Mesquite, Texas. Member of DMAC and member of DFR

I have a picture somewhere of his car at the meet in Freemont, Nebraska where we had 7 DeVaux cars. What do the rest of you think? Was this Jeff's car?

Re: 1931 Devaux 4 Door for sale

Sorry for the delay in answering this topic as I have been away for a while.
Yes, this the car from Mr. Cromeens collection. I talked to him just after his collection was sold. Jeff's cars were sold at auction. Later I traced the sale to update my records.
I called J&R after that to send them a lot of printed data on the history of the DeVaux. That is why the owner of the museum then "upped" (if that is a word) the sale price of the car.
A side note to this is that Ray Zenz had the car before Jeff. I think Ray did the restoration. (I got that from Howard Renke. The Guru of DeVaux history.)
The man that ownes the museum in New Mexico has been involved with the "Great Race" for years. When the race ended in Tacoma, Washington 2 years ago I saw him and his wife cross the finish line in a Model A roadster.

Re: 1931 Devaux 4 Door for sale

Questions if I may: Is this car fully restored and generally in superb condition? Is the DeVaux brand more difficult to find parts, or do parts closely match other Durant cars? What would be a "fair" price to offer? Thanks, Ron
