Less than an hour to go on this BAT auction. I'll bet one or two people here could afford this. grinning smiley

It is at $36K right now but I'm sure it will go much higher than that in the final moments. I've seen this one myself at meets here in Phoenix.

Shows sold for $47,000 final bid. I thought it would go for more than that based upon other Devin sales.

DC12-1 sold by George Holt on BAT for $40K? I was not as refined in my opinion (engine lid would not close fully due to height of center mount carb) and also not running at the time of the sale. I know these auction prices go way up or down depending on the last two people bidding. smiling smiley

Interesting exhaust manifolds and limiting straps/springs on the rear. Did Devin make those modifications, or by owners?

My biggest regret is not pursuing a disassembled Devin C for $3500. Guy showed up one time at a Corvair Minnesota meeting 20 years ago and I was too busy and/or stupid.

Jim,
I understand your regret, I could have bought a perfect running Devin that was for sale at the Toss in Palm Springs 20 yrs ago for $12k...I love Devins and I did bid on the BAT Devin but did not get it...maybe next time.
