1956 Heinkel Kabine 150. Microcar. Time Capsule / Survivor 

 

Accomplished engineer Professor Ernst Heinkel realized his goal of building his own version of the Iso Isetta. equipping it with a smaller engine from the Heinkel Tourist scooter but nevertheless ensuring that it would be lighter and faster.  


Like Willy Messerschmitt. Heinkel was prohibited from building aircraft and was looking for suitable work for his factories. He had shrewdly noted an increasing interest in microcars and looked about for inspiration. Yet. at the 1954 Geneva Salon. the popular Iso Isetta appeared to be. to the trained eye of the experienced aircraft builder. too heavy. Heinkel would opt for a full monocoque shell. resulting in a vehicle a full 100 kilograms lighter. Lacking funds for large presses. Heinkel could approach his customers Vidal & Sohn. makers of the Tempo. which used the Heinkel motor. to form the body shell. The 175-cubic centimeter motor used in the Tourist scooter. already in production. was deemed to be superior to the twin-piston single powering the Iso. The Kabine's rounded shape. with its Messerschmitt-like tail. would be aerodynamically more efficient.

Heinkel had trodden carefully and had preliminary discussions with Munich. explaining his intended design differences and also declaring his intention not to copy 

the BMW Isetta's iconic folding steering column. An agreement satisfactory to both sides was reached.


The Kabinenroller was produced in three variants. The first. introduced in March 1956. was the 173-cubic centimeter three-wheeler Type 150. The second. offered from October 1956. was the 198-cubic centimeter three-wheeler Type 153. and the third. offered from October 1956. was the 204-cubic centimeter four-wheeler Type 154.  

The Heinkel Kabinenroller is still located in Mexico and available for inspection by appointment. It is being sold as is where is. with no warranties expressed nor implied.  Don´t miss this chance to own such a great micro cars in that authentic condition.

 

The microcar is in its body in good general condition. ready to paint. the color you choose. the car was bought and brought to mexico in 1956. the whole time has remained here in Mexico. missing the glasses. and some moldings Aluminum. the engine turns but has not been started in years. it's a matter of time to take it back to the streets. I can help send it to the U. S. A. border. By FEDEX. DHL; Or any other transport. the cost is for the account of the buyer.
