LISTINGS
Mercedes-Benz 190SL (mb190sl3)
SOLD



DETAILS :  

REMARKS: 

Mint condition, Original Right Hand Drive, Original Panels, No Rust, Unrestored running condition, Smooth running engine, Webbers.
 

The 190SL was introduced in 1953. Sold alongside the more expensive 300SL, they both share similar styling cues, suspension and detailing. Even the 4 cylinder engine block was based off the 300SLs.

Although the 190SL’s engine output was not as potent as the 300SL, it holds up its own grand touring ability and character. When in gear, owners swear by the fluidity of the motor. The drop top factor contributes to the perfect cruising mode and seating position.

This particular specimen is presented in its very original condition. Being an original Right hand drive version, this unit is rare as many are converted from Left hand drive models. The body work shows little signs of rust and the chrome trims and extremities are intact. As the car has been kept covered most of its life, there is very little moisture accumulation leading to very presentable bodywork.

A common problem with the 190SL is the Twin Solex Carbs running out of sync. This particular specimen has an uprated Webber unit that has eliminated that problem. Thus the power from the engine is now much more linear and uninterrupted.  

During its 8 year production life from 1955 to 1963 more than 25,000.00 units were produced. Unfortunately not all will survive the 5 decades of history and may require more than money just to bring it up to speed.

This specimen has had the proper upbringing and only requires some cosmetic attention to complete a very handsome looking car that drives like a dream. At a fraction of the 300SL’s cost, own a true classic that is aggressively commanding higher values. Contact us for more Q&As.
