Description

French title
Chassis No 121104210015634

- On the cover of a renowned Mercedes 190 SL book
- High quality restoration
- Restored by the 190 SL France club founder

This car is the one from the family of the Mercedes 190 SL France club founder, the author of the "Mercedes 190 SL - une sublime étoile" book published in 2011. The car is featured on the book cover. Discovered in the South of France in the late 1980s by this genuine enthusiast of the model, it was then subject to a complete restoration between 1990 and 1993. The bodywork was stripped off, the engine and the interior was redone and a great attention towards the original configuration was strictly respected, down to the smallest detail. A file of invoices and images are included to show the extent of the work. Once restored, it has travelled over 40,000km to participate at various Mercedes gatherings and rallies in France, Germany, Italy and England. The work done was perfectly suited for this type of use and in 2019, the bodywork was repainted in order to restore it back to its former glory.
Sold new in France with its three original seats, this elegant 190 SL comes with its grey hardtop, various instruction and workshop manuals and a set of documents regarding this model. Regularly used and in superb condition, it is undoubtedly an ideal vehicle for those seeking a resilient and reliable cabriolet, a car ready for the road and to enjoy on European scenic routes.
