Description

Lot #1536 - Own a stunning example of the classic Mercedes-Benz 190 SL. With a 118mph top speed, generous luggage capacity, modern unit body construction, and drop dead good looks, it's no wonder these cars are rapidly appreciating in value with enthusiastic collectors - especially as their Big Brother 300SLs continue to climb in value ever closer to the half million dollar mark. The example you see here is the recipient of a meticulous five-year, $60,000 restoration. It has been returned to proper specification with a navy soft top and red interior just like when it was delivered new. The car shows superbly throughout and is absolutely pristine everywhere you look. It comes with a staggering file of receipts, records, photos, and information. We venture to say that you won't readily find another 190SL of this caliber on the market, period. As any experienced collector will tell you, spend the money to own the best, and this car is just such an opportunity.
