Mercedes-Benz - 190 SL - 1957

Description
Mercedes-Benz - 190 SL - 1957
Can be picked up in: Germany - with German registration - 42290 km - 2 - Very good condition, minimal signs of wear and tear

The vehicle offered here is a German vehicle, which was first owned until 1971, and has demonstrably been in the possession of its second owner since then.

An expert report from 2015 certifies a quality grade 2 for the vehicle, and there are many documents and invoices available (e.g. a compression test).

The vehicle was originally delivered in the colour silver, but the second owner arranged for a professional new paintjob in Mercedes-Benz grey.

In the course of time, the second owner also had the upholstery restored, and the engine and the carburettor were completely overhauled as well, in fact, the latter was renewed - so more than DM20,000 were invested in this SL as early as the 1980s.

Nevertheless, the vehicle still has a high level of originality and cannot be compared to “A to Z-restored” vehicles which are often offered for sale - nor is this a lousy US import; all in all, the condition justifies the price - this SL is definitely worth it!

The vehicle has an original Becker radio as well as a hardtop.

All information supplied without guarantee - no liability for printing and typing errors. The stated mileage is the actual odometer reading (km).

Sold on behalf of a customer.

The vehicle can be viewed and collected in Kissing (near Augsburg) in Germany.
