Very rare 1st. series, built 1955 -
Mille Miglia Eigible -
Restored by 1 of the main 190SL restoration companies in the world with an absolute stunning result -
… The most beautiful color combination possible -
Driven approximately 1.400 kilometers since restoration -
Fitted with a tailer made hardtop with electrical sunroof - ---- This specific Mercedes 190SL is one of a kind as she is restored on a very high level. Some years ago this specific car has been restored at Classic Car Venlo. A company who is well known in the Mercedes 190SL world.
A company with 30 years of experience and a company whereby every single part is restored in-house.
From dismantling to painting, from engine rebuilt toward the restoration or renewing of the full interior.
The company is well known because they do not want to restore a car with compromises. Every single part has to be as perfect as possible and that becomes immediately clear when people take a close look to this specific 190SL.
The quality is impressive, very impressive.
We were able to buy this 190SL from a good friend and large classic car collector. This gentlemen has every serious car in his collection including rare and unique Ferrari’s as well as a 300SL Roadster and Gullwing but he just wanted to have this car because of the quality.
The reason of selling had to do with space inside his museum as the gentlemen bought 4 “new” classic cars from us and he already had another 190SL which is in the same color as his 300SL.
-------- CONDITION EXTERIOR :
As a consequence of the professional approach and experience of the restoration company, the Mercedes is in an excellent overall order. It will be very hard to find a nicer example.
The color combination is absolutely one of the nicest we have ever seen. It’s a very chique and warm color.
The panel gaps and fit are extremely good throughout, and the paint remains free from any blemishes.
The quality of the paint is extremely good, with no signs of use of the car. It seems that the car actually never drove since it was finished from restoration.
The chrome is as new without any damages or pitting.
The car is fitted with Hella auxiliary lamps, which are in very good condition while all other lights and lenses are excellent.
A unique feature on the early 190 SL’s are the small rear lamps.
The glass is excellent/new throughout as well, and a new top of the correct canvas has been installed at the time of the restoration.
An extra and extremely expensive option on this Mercedes is the special tailer made hardtop with electrical sunroof. To make this sunroof, a complete car has been demolished to be able to make a hardtop with a sunroof.
It’s a very nice extra addition to this already special car.
------ CONDITION INTERIOR :
The interior is extremely nice as well and exactly restored as it should be including the clock on the right side of the dashboard.
The door panels are excellent, as is all chrome trim.
The dash top and the gauges are excellent, having both been fully restored.
The rubber floor mats are of the correct original type and are excellent, and the carpets are in very nice beige and in the period correct material. Also in the boot the 190 SL is looking exactly as she should be.
-------- DRIVING EXPERIENCE :
When the key of the Mercedes is turned, the engine starts easily and it become immediately clear that the engine is running very strong.
This is off-course normal as the entire technical part of the car has been redone/rebuilt as well.
Both engine and gearbox have been fully rebuilt and the rear axle has been slightly modified to decrease the revs on the motorway.
If one drives this 190SL it is just clear that these cars are made on an absolute excellent German way and due to the amazing restoration it is a superb car to drive around with and to look at. ------- Price on Request
