Here is a photo of a Hebmüller at a Vintage VW meeting organized by Bill Collins at Ted Trudon’s VW dealership in 1975. We are trying to ID the man shown with the Heb.

We have been told he was a doctor of some kind and that he sold the car in about 1987 to Gary LaVere.

I know the heb Mike? that is 253 . It went from the us to japan . It has come back to the us last year or that before , but can not help with the man next to it. Maybe Garry Lavere knows or one of the members.. let's hope.

Great info, Peter,

Hopefully, we will also hear from someone who was at that show or is from the area and knows something about the man in the photo of Heb 253.

I took the bottom photo in early 1988, when the owner was selling his Heb. Here is the other photo I took the same day.

I do not know his name, but he lived in the Ridgefield, CT area when the photos were taken.

The CT plates on the car in the Ted Trudon photos were issued 1969-70, which would be consistent with the car being initially restored in 1969.
