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
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
This 1959 Mercedes Benz 190SL is a great investment which can be
driven and enjoyed.
