Classic Car Overview

Presenting a 1960 190 SL in Brilliant Silver exterior with Red leather interior previously owned in its history by the same owner for almost 40 years!!!Introduced at the 1954 New York Auto Show in prototype form (alongside the 300SL Gullwing), the 190SL was a glamorous yet affordable way to enjoy Mercedes quality and robustness in an open air form. Like many other contemporary European sports cars (most notably the Porsche Speedster), the arrival of the 190SL in the United States owed much to Max Hoffman, the contemporary US distributor for many European car companies, including Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, MG, and Triumph. Priced at around $4000, the 190SL was slightly more than half the price of the 300SL, and consequently, nearly 26,000 examples were built between 1955 and 1963, compared to about 1800 300SL Roadsters. Therefore, today, the 190SL remains a considerably more affordable and easier to live with (but in many ways, equally striking and pretty) car than the 300SL thanks to superior parts availability and more simple mechanicals.This particular example has been restored during its life and the odometer now reads 4362 miles which should actually be 304362 according to history records.The exterior silver paint shows really well and is a very high quality job but does have small blemishes on the left front fender.The leather interior looks fantastic for its age and is still supple.At about 150,000miles the cylinder head was replaced including new valves and spring.Valves adjustments, Plug replacements, brakes and brake fluid flush, transmission and clutch overhaul, overhaul generator, replacement bearing and brushes and carburetor rebuilt have been consistently taken care of as regular oil changes every 3000 miles and are part of the service history of this car.In 2004 The car was repainted and re-chromed, the car has a recent soft top and comes with a hard top.This car is well-designed and well made, the maintenance is relatively low considering the year and mileage the car has.The car will be delivered with service records, owners manual, Keys and Historical news paper article of its ownership.The overhaul condition of this car is fantastic and will make the next owner very proud.Our site posts content to many other sites all over the world.
