The special one: 1950 Volkswagen Typ 14A by Hebmüller


The Volkswagen Beetle too has its “Holy Grails”, which are generally of two types: the standard ones built up until 1945, and those modified by the Hebmüller bodywork.


This body shop was already in the business of building horse-drawn carriages since the late 1800s, but it was not until the First World War that they began working on cars, and the quality of their work was much appreciated: they worked on many cars but their creation more famous was the Käfer Cabriolet Hebmüller, of which about 695 were produced.


So, this car (chassis #1-0145991) is one of the 170 of which are known to exist today, and it seems that this is the example with the richer documentation. There is not much to say about the car as it has been fully restored to a high standard and it has the original livery; it seems that all the photographic documentation of the restoration is available, as well as the video below. Find it for sale here in Netherlands, with bidding at €110,000 (today $123,000) and reserve not met.
