Norman deVaux was a friend of William C. Durant and organized the Chevrolet Motor Company of California. Later, he helped organize the West Coast companies for Star and Durant operations. In 1930, he teamed with Colonel Elbert Hall of the Hall-Scott Motor Company to form the DeVaux-Hall Motors Corporation. They leased space from the Hayes Body Corporation in Grand Rapids, Michigan and by April of 1931 the DeVaux 6-75 was ready for market. Although the reception was great the economy was in the heart of the great depression which forced the sale of the company to the Continental Motors Corporation.
Renamed as the DeVaux-Continental with some upgrades including increasing the HP form 65 to 84, 1,358 cars were rolled off the production line in Michigan. With such a limited amount produced less than 60 are known to exist today. This is truly an American classic and a survivor.
This DeVaux was the top of the line sport sedan model with wire wheels and mohair upholstery. This has been restored to original and is in excellent condition.
