Description

This fabulous 1956 Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a true European classic with amazing character. This car is eligible for the Mille Miglia start and has been professionally restored to show quality standards throughout. The Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a two-door luxury convertible produced by Mercedes Benz between May 1955 and February 1963. A total of only 25,881 were built during the entire production run. It was first shown in a prototype at the 1954 New York Auto Show where it stole the hearts of many.

The car retains all the original sheet metal. Only minor sheet metal work was required during the restoration. The body is very straight and it has great gap lines throughout. During the restoration, it only made sense to paint the car the Mercedes Bluegrey DB 166 which is simply gorgeous. This is the correct color for the year and suits this car perfectly. The paint is high quality throughout and has been detailed to a brilliant shine. The car sports a new Dark Blue convertible top which looks amazing in combination with the Mercedes Blue paint. Everything on the exterior has been restored or replaced such as the glass, trim, wipers, mirrors, door handles, bumpers, moldings, emblems and lights.

This Mercedes 190SL received the highest possible rating (Grade 1 - Concours Restoration) from Classic Data with a value of over 205.000 Euro.
