Hi Richard
               How little you know - the Model 150 was 175cc and the model 153 was the 204cc ( later the 198cc ). The Heinkel factory stopped producing cars in 1958, tranferiing half the tools to Ireland and the other half to Argentina, they continued to produce engins for the Irish built cars but stopped sending them to Argentina because of the poor quality of the cars produced out there.
                                                                                                                                          Mike

confusing- my excuse i'm not well  :-[  

so a Heinkel 150 can mean a 1950's three wheeler OR a 1960's scooter , in this case obviously the former - sorry

I like some of the other photos in the same collection - for example, the Goggo Dart with "Eat my smoke" written on the back...
