Immediately after the war was hard for everyone. However, in Germany the situation was tragic, with many companies unable, by rules imposed by the winning countries, to resume normal activities. For the Heinkel aeroplane manufacturer, an activity forbidden to the defeated Germany, the only way to survive was diversify: the Kabine was born ľ a minicar, derived from the Iso Isetta, destined for those who dream of leaving the motorbike, where they suffer the cold and rain, and buying a car. In reality, the Kabine, being equipped with a 174cc engine was, formally, still a motorbike, but it was closed with three wheels.
Heinkel Kabines were produced, from 1956 to 1958 at Heinkel Flugzeugwerke plants and, since 1958, by Dundalk Engineering Co. in Ireland and, since 1960, Trojan Cars Ltd. in England. There was also an Argentine version, produced from 1958 to 1962 by Los Cedros S.A.
Considered at the cutting edge of technology, and very well assembled, the Kabine still has many enthusiasts who collect it and organise dedicated rallies.
Interesting example of the 175 Type 153, with single-cylinder, overhead valve engine, 174cc.
Registered in 1957, it arrived in Italy, via Sweden, in February 2000, purchased by the current owner who carried out complete restoration immediately after purchase.
Repainted in red, colour corrected by type. Practically never used since then.
In the current collection since 2000. Extremely interesting car equipped with Swedish number plate and logbook. Accompanied by the spare parts manual, various letters from the Heinkel Club, the sales catalogue of the time and some pre-restoration photos.
