In 1959 you could probably count the number of marques in the world that could provide the caliber of craftsmanship and appointments to this degree of luxury on a sports car. With roll-up windows, fine leather, weather-proof top and faultless fittings; the Mercedes-Benz 190SL displayed excellence on roadways or racing rallies, setting a standard that is admired a appreciated to this day.

It is reported that this 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL has been frame-off restored to a high level. The sporty roadster is driven by a 1,897-cc, 120-hp four-cylinder engine with Weber carbs and is paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Presented in rich colors; the 190SL has stunning tan leather, tan canvas top, matching leather top boot, “spotless” trunk, great interior condition and a clean, tidy engine bay. The spare is in the trunk, the seats and interior show piping details and the chrome is stated to be beautiful. Whitewall tires and factory wheel covers complete this excellent representation of the respected Mercedes-Benz 190SL.
