That is a Devin "295" body on a VW type 1 pan. Bill Devin sold thousands of universal bodies in 27 different wheelbase lengths to fit just about any chassis. They were commonly attached to MG, Austin Healey, Corvette, VW, and even Porsche 356 chassis'. They were named after their price of $295.

The Devin D was a car that could be bought as a complete and running VW or Porsche powered road car. It had a Devin frame and the body was a somewhat different shape than the 295 body.

To learn more about the Devin D, C, 295, and SS visit this site. http://www.devinspecial.com
