The 190 SL when it was new, opened a new market for people who couldn’t afford the 300 SL. It offered almost all of the features you got on the big car being including the styling, fully independent suspension and small details found throughout the vehicle. It shared its frame with the popular 180 and was powered by a 1.9L Inline four engine paired to a 4 speed manual gearbox.
Our customer has owned this very early and quite original 1955 190 SL for over 25 years. The car been in extended storage for many years. We will be restoring the fuel, brake, cooling & heating systems as well as performing some careful detailing on this original paint survivor.
