Well, there is news on this heb.
It finaly arrived at METALKRAFT in Cincinnati to join heb 309 and 418 that are there to restore. Now 428.
Ken Swan, the owner and his son, dragged the heb on a trailer for 9 hr drive from Pensylvania to Cincinnati. There the work started directly to see what the car is, what colors are found and what secrets it holds.
First: Car needs a fix,....lots of rust due to bad storage in the 80s.... outside.
secondly.... Ken owns the heb for 55 years... he bought it in the states. No German papers came with the car. No history known before that. Who brought it to the us, who owned it in Germany.
Good news is that it wears a body tag outside from a bodyshop in Munich, It still is in Business. Request send out 🙂
Next: Body seems to have original IVORY color all over except the rear part inside around the back seat.
On the left side window pilar, ,a search light or sort of device was mounted. Now we need to find a period pict of a heb with a search light. I have one but it is clear the the mounting spot is different.
So , if anyone have period picts of a heb with a search light on it... please share it.
I'll keep you updated.
I am looking forward to see what Ken has kept in his blue file ordner... He proudly wear his cap...
