History

According to information from the past, this Hebmueller was from the Berlin region and shipped in 1958 towards South Africa. Late s 1958 it was involved in a car crash.  In the 70's John Smith replaced the front part and the floorpan as beyond repaid. With this action, the car lost it's identity but is since then known as the South African Heb.

The resto was however done with a split floorpan, a crotchcooler front clip that was welded to the original heater chanels. Front windowframe was cut from the crashed front and welded on the newer front. Sema boxes were not built in due to the air intakes. The Heb was painted in green color with Ivory sides.  The engine is an Okrasa TSV 1300 . The casenumber is stamped, due to regulations, with a new number that starts with J. ( pointing as a Johannesburg engine)

In the 90's the owner shipped the Hebmueller to the USA where he attended some shows and traveled 1 year.  After that, the car went back to South Africa.  John Smith repainted the car to the current theme with a 2 tone brown.

At one point, John Smith sold the car to an UK citizen Paul  Taylor  from London who kept the Heb some years. When an article apeared in the Volksworld  Magazine in september or november 2005  wich stated the car could be up for sale, the current owner made contact and bought the Heb. The Sprintstars were not included in the deal so the car got a nice set of African Sprintstars until a correct set of 16 inch wheels were found.  To bad, the car lost its numbers but the history goes rather far back.
