ffered for your serious consideration is this impeccable 1961 190SL coupe/roadster. Here are some highlights:

First time ever offered in a public sales venue
Optically straight body panels
All numbers match the data card or build sheet
Only NOS factory and OEM parts used unless they were not available at time of restoration
Body panel weld seams sealed with lead- no fiberglass or plastic filler used
No overlap at body part connecting edges- parts were cut to fit and butt-welded together, thereby eliminating premature rust-through
Sparkling, mirror-bright chrome (many pieces are NOS!)
Engine rebuilt in December, 2014 (vintage Mercedes specialists)
Original heater boxes and Solex carbs in very good condition- carbs have good throttle shaft to bushing fit- no air leaks
Scarce coupe/roadster option (only a small percentage were sold with hardtop)
In museum-like storage for a large part of its total life, hence the very low miles- less than 1000 miles per year average!
Most recent owner was in possession for 27 years
Restored to original configuration except for a few sensible upgrades (stainless steel exhaust, 2-stage paintwork, modern tires, carpeting, etc.)
Proper fit of intake/exhaust manifolds to cylinder head- no air leaks
New high quality car cover included
Documented provenance and mileage
Realistic price, tens of thousands below current replacement cost.

190SL's with mileage this low and records as extensive are very rarely found.

Only serious offers considered.
If you're looking to buy a high-point car at below market cost, we may be able to do business

NOTE: The hardtop has not been restored and needs a new headliner but is complete with all mounting hardware
Likewise, the door panels are not restored but are in excellent original condition.
