Single Family Ownership From New

 

The Mercedes-Benz 190Sl is a convertible Grand Touring car that was introduced by Mercedes-Benz at the 1954 New York Auto Show. The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which it closely resembled in its styling, engineering, detailing and fully independent suspension–both cars sharing double wishbone suspensions at the front and swing axles at the rear. The 190SL was powered by a new, slightly over-square 1.9 L I-4 cylinder SOHC engine.

The detail of this particular car is amazing and, when fully restored, it will turn heads wherever it goes. This car has been well maintained within the single-family ownership since new. Open the door to reveal an outstandingly complete and intact original interior. On the exterior, you will notice the incredible factory hardtop. The empty engine bay reveals even more originality and provides an excellent opportunity to note the condition of the chassis and examine the numbers (all matching). Completely disassembled, the fully machined engine and cylinder head provide another glimpse at restoration potential.

The 190SL is currently appreciating rapidly and, with few remaining, restored examples are currently fetching $250,000.
