Hello Lou,<BR>the De Vaux Motor Company came from USA. They were in Grand Rapids,Michigan and Oakland, California. They built cars from 1931 to 1932. Made cars with different bodies in 1931 with 6cyl. and 70HP 113" wheelbase and the next year tigethetr with the engine manufacture Continental with a 6cyl/80hp. But then Continental decided to build only enigines as they did before. There are some more information about the history of this company in the " Standard Catalog of American Automobiles" <BR><P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>

Kevin: The DeVaux was built by the Durant Company and it was short lived. There is a Durant Club which has a lot of information on the DeVaux. I just pulled one of my old news letter and there are nine pages of informatin about the introduction of new cars January 4, 1930 and then a page about the demise and shutdown of the Oakland plan in 1932. The Durant site can be gotten from this forum or you can go directly to it at http://clubs.hemmings.com/frameset.cfm?club=durant.

Hope this helps.
