Vehicle Description

Built as a smaller, cheaper and open-top alternative to the 300SL, the similarly-styled 190 was aimed at the American market for importer Max Hoffman.

The 190SL was available either with removable hardtop or just soft-top convertible.

The 190 SL had a regular steel unitary-body construction based on a shortened W121 platform with aluminum hood, doors and trunk lid called the R121 Roadster.

The 190 SL was powered by a four-cylinder car with twin Twin Solex PHH Carburetors to produce 105 horsepower.

We are proud to be offering one of the nicest and well restored 190 SL's we have ever seen. It is a factory white (DB050) over blue leather interior.

It has been in the same owners hands for many years and the quality of the car is wonderful. The car is an original two-top car and it has its original hard top. It has its original 1.9 liter inline four cylinder engine and four speed manual transmission.

We have just inspected the car and given it a full service and detail. It runs beautifully and is an absolute joy to drive. This Mercedes also has some very special options in addition to the hard top. It has the scarcely seen shortwave radio along with a factory AM/FM radio and manual winding clock. All three items are hardly ever found in working condition and to find all three on one car is almost unheard of.

We also have the original owners manual and fitted luggage which was reproduced to match the interior and is in new condition.

Lots of 190 SL's come to market but few if any are restored to this caliber and have the unique and highly desirable options that this car originally came equipped with.
