Condition and History

This gorgeous and recent restored example of this matching # 60’ MercedesBenz 190SL ROADSTER with its original smooth running SOLEX carbs on thisexceptional attractivecolor combination was driven by the last owner for the last 36 years only on sunny weekends.

This unique Mercedes that was hand built in Germany has been meticulously cared for and fully maintained.

The 3rd owner purchased the SL from the 2nd owner 36 years ago and restored it step by step within that time. Last recent update includes:

New original carpet, new leather interior, new white wall tires, engine bay detail, serviced the engine and SOLEX carbs incl. new water pump and most of the hoses.

The chrome all over the car has been rebuilt or replaced and shines like new.

This SL comes with a black soft top, the original restored instrument cluster incl. the very desirable original working KIENZLE clock.

This roadster has a refurbished original matching #'s engine with ORIGINAL 64,400 miles and matching #s transmission.

The floors are still in its original uncut condition.

The leather interior incl. seat springs were replaced recently and are in great condition with no rips or tears.

The vehicle has been professionally stripped and repainted in this attractive midnight blue met. color and looks outstanding. There is a very small almost unrecognizable scratch on the right front fender.

There are no signs of rust and the body is strait, solid and extremely presentable.

The doors close nicely with the right sounds and perfect jambs with no extra effort.

The trunk has the 2 rubber mats, a spare wheel, jack and right tool in the trunk.

The soft top has no rips and closes flawlessly and all the seals on the top, doors, windows, trunk etc. have also been replaced.

The rebuilt engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no oil leaks, the transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool and it does not smoke or leak oil and the brakes, suspension and tires are superb.

The differential makes no sound and is still tight as the overall drivingexperiencewith this Mercedes.

Just the look of it and the driving feeling tells you that in the last 36 years the excessive amount of $$$ spent on restoration, repairs, maintenance und updates are justified.

This car must be seen to be fully appreciated.
