She has just completed an extensive Frame Off Restoration and does not disappoint. Numbers Matching drivetrain has just been rebuilt with the rest of the restoration. Daimler-Benz began the development of the 190 SL in 1952, just before the introduction of its volume Pontoon sedans. Like the sedans, it was constructed with a welded frame-floor structure and separate sub-frame. However, it rode a shorter wheelbase, not coincidentally, the same as the 300 SL. As the companys first volume sports car, the 190 SL shared the 120-horsepower, 1.9-liter four-cylinder engine and running gear with the W120 model Type 180 Sedan, while also offering styling like the legendary 300 SL Gullwing Coupe and Roadster. The resemblance to the 300 SL was certainly intentional. At $3,840 new in 1955, it was half the price of its muscular sibling, which introduced a roadster model of its own starting in 1957. The 190 SL (for Sport Light) was produced from 1955 through 1963, with Mercedes-Benz building 25,881 units. The factory claimed a top speed of 110 mph, with 0-60 mph times of 13.3 seconds, while also offering up to 26 mpg, the perfect combination for effortless touring. The 190 SL was powered by a new, slightly oversquare 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) Type M121 BII 1.9 L straight-four SOHC engine. Based on the 300 SLs 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 120 gross hp. 1.9L SOHC inline 4-cylinder engine Manual 4-speed transmission Less than 100 miles since restoration Color is DB270 Becker Radio Factory Manual Original Mercedes Tools To view this 1959 Mercedes SL190 in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our Dallas showroom located in North Texas.
