West Coast Classics to present this absolutely exceptional 1957
Mercedes 190SL Roadster in Black over Red leather interior powered
by it's matching #'s 1,897cc/120hp four-cylinder engine with dual
Weber carbs and teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox and with
it's original factory hard top and a new soft top and frame.
Recently fully professionally restored with the odometer reading
some 4,147 miles.The car is a superb example in every way fully
restored with no expense spared and with exceptional Black paint
and has a very attractive interior finished in Red leather with
gleaming chrome gauge surrounds and brilliant chrome touches
throughout. An excellent driver boasting a thick file of recent
service records and that also shows extremely well, this rare and
highly desirable 190SL Roadster will be a cherished addition to any
serious collection!Stylistically evocative of the mighty 300SL, but
with a slightly less complex drive train, the sleek, aerodynamic
and comparatively light Mercedes Benz 190SL was very advanced for
its time. The 190SL was praised for its outstanding achievement in
styling, engineering, quality of design, detailing and workmanship,
as well as the general feeling of solidity which the car
immediately conveys. The open-top Mercedes Benz was not designed as
a thorough-bred sports car. Instead, it was conceived as an elegant
two-seater for touring and everyday driving. Although the Mercedes
190SL was described as a roadster, it was actually a proper
cabriolet with roll-up windows and a well-insulated top.A timeless
classic whose beautiful styling has aged very well, the 190SL is
still comfortable and competent by modern standards. The final
production tally by Mercedes from 1955 to 1963 was 25,881 cars,
about 10,000 of which were sold in the USA. The Mercedes-Benz 190SL
is among the most desirable cars of its era. Surviving Mercedes
190SL's have become increasingly collectible in recent years and
they are much sought after all over the world.
