This Hebmüller’s history was long time unknown. This until recently the previous owner cleared a period when the car was in his hands. Thanks to Mike Leach we got in touch with the man' son. Mr Carbajal from California used to import cars from Germany in the past.
Carbajal had Ferrari’s, Porsches, Morgan’s, BMW’s Mercedes, Austin Martins and his little Heb was his absolute favorite that he drove almost daily. When he first bought the car it had a white top and torn up mohair I think it was seats. He redid the interior either it was black or dark blue leather with white piping. He never put the Telefunken radio in although he had it because someone with a Heb told him they get stolen.
One day, someone from Volkswagen wanted to buy the Hebmüller for their showroom, but he was not happy with the price they offered and he really loved that car. The car was in an accident at one point. Another car swerved in front of the Mr Cabajal and he avoided hitting another car but instead hit a pole. It had damage in the front. He was desperately to try and track down original parts for the repair. While the Heb was in repair, Mr. Carbajal drove his Ferrari. The only reason why he sold it was he got sick and needed the money. The son told us he never got it why everybody wanted to have a look at their Heb in those days. Now he know'w why.
In the early 90'ies the Hebmüller popped up in a meeting in Holland on a meeting. It was not done to put Sprintstars under a Hebmüller. Later the car ended up in a collection in Austria and is on display in a local museum. With the help of old Hebmüller data listings, we could find out the Hebmüller body number as 14-00567 (PS)
