Re: 31 DeVaux 6/75 restored and driving & lots of pictures all over inside my May 2019 AACA magazine

Hi Lance: Yes, I know the car. There is a great story here. On the Registry I had a car owned by Barry Palmer (we created the first Registry) and a car owned by David DeVaux...(of Iowa I think). The car owed by David was purchased from a retired teacher from Grand Rapids. I always wondered it it was the same car. David DeVaux was a second cousin of Norman DeVaux. It was his dad that purchased the car from Barry. Barry did the restoration. David told me the story that his dad told him that in early 56 Norman DeVaux stopped at there house on his way to Florida. He was looking for a handout to get him to Florida. He died at his daughters house in Gainsville a few months later. When David died the car went up for auction. Bill Krall owns it and we have talked many times.

Another side story on this is that Norman DeVaux had just given up on his Copper mine claim in Globe Arizona. That claim was later purchased by Phelps Dodge. My sin-in-laws father is the mine manager and I have been up there.

This one is s 1931 675 sedan they are talking about
At present at least 24 1931 675 coupes exist and one 1932 675 coupe. 1932 680 coupes at least four are known. Hard to say when new cars come out of the woodwork unknown to members.
