VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE CABRIO HEBMUELLER, 1949
Limited Edition 2000 pcs.
VW Käfer 1200 Hebmüller Cabriolet
No Beetle Cabriolet ever was more beautiful than the delicate design by Hebmüller. A Volkswagen, a dream car! And for that time only 7500 DM.
The construction of the vehicles in the first half of the 20th century - Frame structures with screwed body - allowed independent coachbuilders, own structures to design based on existing series production vehicles.
In the re-awakening economy of the late 1940s the coachbuilder Hebmüller from the “Bergisches Land” offered Volkswagen his services. Hebmüller developed an elegant 2 + 2-seater cabriolet on beetle-base and received a production order of 696 vehicles in total that were officially sold by Volkswagen dealers.
A large fire which destroyed the complete factory stopped the promising start in the early postwar period. The company went into bankruptcy. A part of already assembled vehicles were completed by Karmann in Osnabrück.
Our new model, the VW Käfer 1200 Hebmüller Cabrio is now available in black/dark red and red/beige!
