Both online! The HEBMÜLLER convertible Type 14A and the KARMANN split convertible Type 15 registry. After Klaus Jacobsen in 2003 switched off his website registry consisting of about 100 cars each of type 14 and type 15 I had mainly taken care of the KARMANN split convertible registry and my friend Peter Schepens meanwhile had continued to accumulate informations about Hebmüller verts. On Jan. 9, 2009 the updated Hebmüller registry started on this website here with 133 registered cars. Besides the online listing with photos and ID numbers Peter and me are collecting all historic informations about existing and no more existing cars as per example date and destination of delivery, more period pics, preowners as well as stories about the respective 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.
Also online is the registry for the rare VW Typ 18A police convertibles. Volkswagen ordered those cars by Hebmüller, Papler and the austrian company Austro-Tatra. Karmann delivered Volkswagen also some police verts. You´ll find them in the Karmann-Registry. In case you have knowlege about cars not being registered yet or you are able to update informations about already registered cars, please send me or Peter an Email:
Claus: info(at)karmann1952.de Peter: type14a(at)live.be
Also more recent pictures or missing pictures belonging to registered cars are greatly appreciated.
Have fun in watching the registries!
