For Sale: 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 in San Diego, California

Vehicle Description

1956 Mercedes 190SL Little introduction is needed for the Mercedes-Benz 190SL, this is a well-loved, two-door grand touring roadster. Daimler-Benz's first volume sports car, known internally as the W121, used a shortened version of the W120 platform and topped it with the unique roadster body. It shared the 180's 120-bhp, 1.9-liter, inline four-cylinder engine. The 190 SL was produced from 1955 to 1963, and Mercedes-Benz built a total of 25,881 units over the production period. The car was marketed as more of a comfortable cruiser than the powerful 300 SL sports car, and its performance was quite capable for the era, with a top speed of 110 mph and 0-60 mph times of 13.3 seconds. Styling was purposely similar to its bigger 300 SL sibling, with the most notable features being the rounded overall lines, low nose, and wide grille with the Mercedes-Benz three-pointed star, causing no one to mistake this for any other automobile. The car is powered by a 120 hp, 1.9-liter inline four-cylinder engine. Inside, the driver is greeted by crisp, clear VDO instrumentation and Mercedes-Benz's characteristic ivory steering wheel and shifter, which is mated to the four-speed manual transmission. The 190 SL is a car that still commands the presence and attention it did when new. This gorgeously restored vehicle provides its new owner with a superb opportunity to participate in Mercedes-Benz club events, concours, and rallies.
