is a truly gorgeous classic that will definitely stand out in one
lucky collector's garage.
Enjoyed by the Current Owner for 43+ Years
The current owner of this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster purchased
it all the way back in 1988 from the original owner. He informs us
that this example has remained almost entirely original its entire
lifetime and was partially restored back in the 1990's, including
new paint and a refreshed interior. We also have the original
owner's manual and ample receipts on file to show decades of proper
care. It still drives nicely on the open road and requires very
little to be brought back up to show quality- this is a perfect
candidate for a complete restoration or it can be enjoyed right
away as a nice driver.
Additionally, this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster really impresses
in person with laser straight body lines and a nice shine to the
older repaint. The original chrome and trim are also well above
average with only slight blemishes that do not detract from this
classic's awesome curb appeal. The soft top does have a small tear
so that will eventually have to be replaced, but otherwise this
example really stands out for its originality. The interior is also
super clean throughout with minimal levels of wear.
The engine compartment to this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster gives
the appearance of typical driver quality- which is a pretty big
deal for a 59 year original classic. With a rebuilt 1.9L engine and
exceptional everyday performance, it simply needs some light
refreshing. Wheels drums and brakes completely replaced in
