A Heinkel Convertible

This car appeared on German E-bay the other day:
Heinkel Cars and Cabin Scooters
Heinkel Sports Convertible Prototype

According the the Heinkel Club of the United Kingdom, two (or possibly three ) prototypes were built by Heinkel Cabin Scooters of Dundalk, Ireland.

It's interesting to look at the photos. It doesn't have a "Heinkel-I" door badge or steering wheel insert. It was probably restored and repainted at some point as it has different window latches, door closer, and paint around the windshield wiper trim.

The text of the ad says the current owner has had it for 35 years. It's a neat car and definitely worth looking at the ad, even if you can only dream of buying it.

You can see the car on ebay here:

A 4 wheeler as well, with a trailer hitch


  1. Brilliant, the suspension and hydraulic brakes gave a smooth ride and never any fear of a slide, in my experience.
    If I had a lot of cash, I would dig up the press tools and manufacture.
    Day dreams. (Press tools still around, anyone?)
    I think the Heink,. and the Troj., were the best of the micro's.
    I don't count the Messerschmidt

  3. Never seen a Heinkel with a tow hitch before. Is it common? How is it fasten? Really got me curious...
