WELCOME TO OUR VINTAGE VW HOMEPAGE

Welcome to our redesigned VW homepage. We have decided to clearly distinguish both Karmann Type 15 and Hebmueller Registry. As previously on our site www.karmann1952.de you will find the split and zwitter convertible registry. Using the registry entry on lower side of start site you can head on to the new Hebmueller registry ( www.hebmueller-registry.com ), which does not only list the existing VW type 14A and type 18A convertibles but also all known surviving Hebmueller bodies. To grant most complete information we were able to motivate many Hebmueller specialists to share their knowledge and archives as for example the Hebmueller family, Bob Gilmore, Klaus Jacobsen and Steve Dressler amongst others. Both registries now are offering filters to sort listed cars by year of make, colour, condition or country. Many thanks to Niels Timmerman for designing the new registry logos. As usual we will be happy to receive your feedback to our website as well as informations about known or unknown cars. 

Have fun and enjoy the Registries.

Claus Missing & Peter Schepens

NUMBER OF REGISTERED CARS:

As we can see there are existing today nearly the same number of Hebmüller and Karmann convertibles. The VW Hebmuller always was a very special and highly appreciated car which usually saved them from the scrapyard. The production output of roughly 700 Hebs to 10.000 split verts clearly show how many Karmanns have been disposed off during the years. In case you have knowlege about cars not being registered yet or you are able to update informations about already registered cars, please send us an email to: info@karmann1952.de

Also more recent pictures or missing pictures belonging to registered cars are greatly appreciated.
