An accessible 300SL
You want a slice of Mercedes’ finest without the price tag of the SL300 Gullwing, look no further…The 190SL is a two-seat luxury convertible sports car that was produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1955 to 1963.
It was marketed as a more affordable and accessible version of the iconic Mercedes 300SL "Gullwing" and featured a sleek design with a low-slung body, a soft top, and a signature Mercedes-Benz grille. The car was powered by a 1.9-liter inline-four engine that produced 120 horsepower and was paired with a four-speed manual transmission. The 190SL became a popular and iconic car, known for its style and elegance, and has since become a classic collector's item.
This elegant 190 SL was built in 1957 and bought by its current owner at an Aguttes sales auction in 2018. The previous owner back in 2012, undertook considerable restoration work to make the car fully reliable.
The car has since been inspected by Lang, authorised valuers at Tourneufeuille. It is nicely patinated in its original condition and white paintwork, with good chrome work and sound and functional mechanicals.
The upholstery is elegant and the whole interior welcoming. All the dashboard instruments are in good condition, not to mention the original small Becker Mexico car radio. The soft top is in very good condition: no wear and tear on the hood material and the soft rear window.
Full service history
The wearing parts of the engine were replaced in 2011 and those of the rear suspension in 2014. In 2018 it underwent a light restauration: chromes were redone as well as a mechanical overhaul.
The car has a full historic file with many invoices. The chassis number indicated in the registration documents is the same as the one on the maker's plate and on the chassis stamping. This very elegant model has an attractive estimated price and is a good opportunity not to be missed by a passionate collector.
