The DeVaux Automobile Company was a short-lived American automobile manufacturer that operated from 1931 to 1932. Founded by G.J. De Vaux and J.H. DeVaux, the company aimed to produce affordable cars during the Great Depression. DeVaux cars were known for their streamlined design and advanced engineering, featuring a low-slung chassis and hydraulic brakes. Despite initial optimism, the company faced financial challenges due to the economic downturn, production delays, and limited distribution networks. In 1932, DeVaux merged with Continental Motors, but production ceased later that year. While the DeVaux marque had a brief existence, its cars remain sought after by collectors for their unique design and historical significance as examples of American automotive innovation during a challenging period in history.
