1959 Mercedes Benz 190SL; the Mercedes Benz 190SL was produced between 1955 and ending in 1963. The 190SL was aimed at the American market for importer Max Hoffman. Being more affordable than its big brother the 300SL resulted in close to 26,000 cars manufactured.
This particular Mercedes Benz 190SL has been under the same ownership for the last 27 years. The car had a cosmetic restoration approximately 20 years ago and at that time had a color change from the factory color of graphite grey to the current presentation.
The body on this car is very solid and straight with exception of a dent on the right front fender as shown it the photos. The white paint is showing some areas of yellowing although it still has a great luster and overall presentation. The underside is extremely solid on this car which can be an expensive problem area on the 190's. The bright work has a deep shine and the interior presents very well. There has been a professionally installed stereo system upgrade while leaving the original dash unmolested.
The car shows 109,903 miles which appears to be correct; the motor does not appear to have been rebuilt but it has had a Weber carburetor upgrade.
This 1959 Mercedes Benz 190SL is a great investment which can be driven and enjoyed.
