Description

This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .This magnificent 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL was fully restored 4 years ago by Farland Classic Car Restoration in Colorado. The car was exported to Belgium after the restoration.

Originally delivered in black, the car was perfectly resprayed in Champagne Metallic during the restoration. A hardtop in the same colour is also available. The beige soft top is also new which creates a nice contrast with the colour of the body. New whitewall tyres fitted with steel rims and Mercedes wheel covers, both painted in the same colour as the bodywork. All chrome was redone and in fantastic condition.

The interior is also entirely new. The seats are new and reupholstered in cream leather. Original steering wheel and gearstick also fitted. All original VDO gauges are new and in working condition.

Mechanically everything renewed. New Weber carburettors are installed but the original Solex carburettors are still available. The engine has been completely overhauled and in fantastic condition. This 190SL drives, accelerates and stops as it should.

The car is sold with Belgian papers and with all invoices from the last four years.
