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.

This is a prime restoration project that is very complete and solid. The car was outfitted from the factory with midnight blue paint with a white soft top and a creme leather interior. This is a stunning color combination that really brings out the beautifully crafted aerodynamic lines of the 190Sl. The detail of this car is amazing and when fully restored, this car will turn heads wherever it goes.
