The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was the smaller, more affordable sibling of the exotic 300 SL. Both cars had roughly the same lifespan and were sold side by side. The 190 certainly looked the part with a scale that was pretty much spot on to make it really look like a miniature 300 SL Roadster. Like many SL’s, new and old, the 190 does make a fine sports tourer thanks to comfort and durability, and that strength combined with its sheer beauty have garnered greater appreciation among collectors in recent years. It’s a trend that has seen plenty of examples restored, but few would come close to this car. An older top-notch, ground up restoration with almost negligible miles on it that still presents magnificently and has won AACA National First, Senior, and Grand National awards. Finished in DB 543 Strawberry Metallic over black leather, one of the rarest, and certainly most attractive colors offered. Inside, one will find an original clock, Becker FM and short wave radios, and a rare optional third-passenger transverse seat. The top is made of black cloth and comes with a black leather top boot. A stunning 190 SL in every detail, it needs nothing and leaves nothing to be desired. As far as 190 SL’s go, it sports arguably the most pleasing color available and is truly a top shelf example.
