History and strong points

The 190SL is instantly recognizable as a Mercedes, with spectacular curves and through a still understated use of brilliant workmanship that defined this era of Mercedes. Many styling cues are also borrowed from the 300SL "Gullwing", in particular the massive three-pointed star in the grille, bumpers as well as 'eyebrows' on the wheels will all be finished with chrome. Impeccable quality and attractive styling have made the 190SL a huge successful sale of 25,881 units before production ended in 1963. Good number of these models were delivered to the United States

Description

This magnificent Mercedes 190SL which is in its original condition and has only had two owners. There are thousands of restored 190SLs around the world and it is unlikely that there are many copies that have never been restored and in a such state of conservation. This Mercedes was acquired new by the owner of the former dealership Nice Mercedes. In 2001, following health problems, he decided to part with it to sell it to its current owner who has only traveled only 6,000 km in the last 18 years. The finish and composed of a graphite gray and a red leather interior medium offering the typical and uncommon period look. The leather interior original is in rare condition with no tears and retains a nice patina reflecting 60 years of history. The vehicle is in excellent working order with all its original accessory with a Hard Top and a third transverse seat that was a rare option on roadsters of this era. * 1 sole owner from 1960 to 2001 / 2 owners in total * * Only 95,500 km / Logbooks, invoices available * * Completely original / Matching numbers & colors * * Hard top / 3 seats
