RIP Jerry Devito


Jerry Devito, best know to the Custom Car world for his wild restyled and painted 1957 Ford “The Maze” has passed away on April 04,2015.

Jerry Devito was a San Jose Rod and Wheelers Club member. He bought his famous 1957 brand new in 1957 and started to customize it soon after that. The first version was pretty mild, but later in 1958 he redid the car with some radical restyling, and asked Bob Heinrichs to do an ultra wild paint job which helped Jerry to win many awards and put his car, and himself on the Custom Car map.

RIP Jerry Devito

Our sincere condolences go out to the Devito family.
