The Volkswagen Type 14A (commonly known as the Hebmüller Cabriolet or simply Heb)[1] is a German automobile produced after the Second World War. After the war, Hebmüller and Sohn, a coachbuilding firm in Wuppertal, Germany, like most German companies of the time, lacked business. During this time, British Army Major Ivan Hirst of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) was running Volkswagen. After talks with Colonel Michael McEvoy about a sports car based Volkswagen Beetle, Ivan asked Ringel's experimental team to build the Colonel in charge of Volkswagen, Charles Radcliffye, a two-seat cabriolet. At the request of Volkswagen Managing Director Heinz Nordhoff, Hebmüller and Karmann would build cabriolets for Volkswagen, with as many Type 1 parts, such as chassis, engines, and body panels, as possible. Hebmüller was to build the 2+2 cabriolet, and Karmann the four-seat cabriolet. By contrast with the Karmann, the Heb was intended as a sporting model.
