The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL (W121) is a two-door luxury roadster produced by Mercedes-Benz between May 1955 and February 1963. Internally referred to as W121 (BII or B2), it was first shown in prototype at the 1954 New York Auto Show, and was available with an optional removable hardtop.

The 190 SL presented an attractive, more affordable alternative to the exclusive Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, sharing its basic styling, engineering, detailing, and fully independent suspension. Both cars had double wishbones in front and swing axles at the rear. Instead of the 300 SL's expensive purpose-built W198 tubular spaceframe, the 190 SL's R121 structure used a shortened unitary floorplan modified from the W121 base saloon.

The 190 SL was powered by a new, 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) Type M121 BII 1.9 L straight-four SOHC engine. Based on the 300 SL's straight six, it had an unchanged 85 mm bore and 4.3 mm reduced 83.6 mm stroke, was fitted with twin-choke dual Solex carburetors, and produced gross 120 hp.

The car was available either as a soft-top convertible or with removable hardtop. A small third-passenger transverse seat was optional. During its first years the 190 SL was available as a sports-racing model with small perspex windscreen and spartan one-piece leather covered bucket seats and aluminum doors. The 1955 version of this fabulous little sports cars form Mercedes held a few unique one year only features and of course holds a higher value because of it, this particular example has a optional hard top which is included in the sale but it is original and not fully restored, it is accompanied with optional Transverse rear seat, retains its original engine and components, however its color has been changed to red from its original combination of white w/red interior.
This vehicle represents an excellent value for a 1955 Mercedes SL Roadster, the vehicle has been carefully maintained here in Southern California and we have receipts dating back to the mid 80’s. It is a solid beautiful; car that has been preciously owned, many parts have been addressed through its life of restoration, currently is up to date on services, Runs and drives excellent, Interior is nice and the exterior is quite pleasant. The car is not perfect but very very appealing to enjoy for any cruise, tour, local events and outings. If one wished to take it to the next level and compete in concours events around the globe this car is a perfect candidate.
