Description

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning Mercedes-Benz 190SL. This particular example was delivered new to the USA and is understood to have spent its life in Virginia, where it was dry stored, before being acquired, imported and registered in the UK by the Aston Workshop. On arrival this Mercedes was fully assessed by our team of experts and a thorough programme of works completed to turn this into a truly exceptional car.

This 190SL has benefitted from our world class expertise having been refinished in its original colour of graphite grey DB190, which also saw the original hardtop given the same detailed attention as well as being internally relined. In keeping with the high quality external treatment we have given the car, it has also been fully re-trimmed in red leather with fresh grey box weave carpets, a new mohair hood and tonneau cover and a fully restored bakerlite steering wheel putting the interior back to a factory fresh condition. Finally the car has been finished with many re-chromed items including front and rear fenders and grill to complete this immaculately presented car.

Alongside the cosmetic refinishing we have given to this car, Aston Workshop has also mechanically enhanced with a full service, including the gearbox, braking system and a mechanical detail.

Now showing a total of 104,000 miles and having the above works carried out, this beautiful example is ready for the discerning classic Mercedes-Benz enthusiast to enjoy immediately.
