The Mercedes-Benz 190SL with the 300SL made history at the New York International Motor Sports Show in February 1954 by being the first new production Mercedes- Benz to be unveiled outside of Germany. The impression given by the 190SL, alongside the bigger 300SL was neat, sporty and with dashing lines. This was the trait of Mercedes-Benz designers Karl Wilfret and Walter Hacket. Despite opinions, the statistics tell their own tale as between May 1955 and February 1963, 25,881 of these cars were produced - it was a huge success for Mercedes-Benz. Its engine boasted four inline cylinders with a chain driven overhead camshaft and two Solex 44PHH carburettors, delivering a respectable 108bhp for that era. The body was a monocoque design, welded to the shortened chassis of the type 180 saloon. A racing version with aluminium doors and a small windscreen was never produced although these parts could be ordered from the Factory for weekend racing. This charming righthand drive 190SL was delivered new to the United Kingdom in 1960. The car was the subject to a complete restoration in 1999.The bodywork was completely restored with photographic documentation of the works in the history file. Once the bodywork was completed the car was the subject of a full bare metal re-spray in the correct shade of Silver, then the car was fully re-trimmed in contrasting red leather and a new black Mohair hood was also fitted, all bright work was re-chromed during the restoration, there are many bills substantiating work completed, MoT test certificates and various correspondences relating to the reinstatement of the original registration number 158JWN in 1998. In 2000 this car was entered and successfully completed without fault in the 1500mile Euroclassic rally. This 190SL comes with V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate which expires in November 2011. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a very good looking and accomplished 190SL that's also ready for long distance touring and rallies.
