Built at the West German Assembly Plant in Stuttgart form 1955 thru 1963 the Mercedes-Benz 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which it closely resembled. However the more affordable 190SL was still equipped with fully independent suspension, having double wishbone suspensions at the front and swing axles at the rear, and a new 1.9 liter SOHC inline-4 producing a respectable 105hp at 5700 rpm and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.
This beautiful 1963 Mercedes 190SL is finished in code correct DB40G- Schwarz Black with a complimenting Red textured vinyl interior. Powered by its original, late production 121.928 Inline 4 cylinder engine and matching tag showing number 121.928-10-002705, fitted with more reliable Mikuni carburetors (licensed through Solex) and shifted through the 4-speed manual transmission. Features include VDO instrumentation, Kienzle dash clock, Becker Europa High Fidelity AM radio, heat/defrost, both soft top & auxiliary hardtop options, bumper guards, dual outside rearview mirrors, reverse lights, and correct Mercedes locking gas cap.
This example was last owned by a prominent Swiss car collector who housed his cars in southern Florida. As he matured in age, he decided to slowly liquidate his large collection, allowing us to pursue this 190SL and moving it here to St. Louis. Since purchase, an extensive maintenance inspection was performed. The car received a resealed rear differential, differential bushings & axle boots; new front kingpin bushings & tie rod ends, control arm bushings, wheel bearings & seals, idler bushing; freshly rebuilt both carburetors entirely; new brake & reverse light switches; heater control cables & valve seals; new shifter bushings & clutch bushing, along with engine fluid changes with proper filters. We also replaced the battery, spark plugs, radiator mounts, and wiper blades.
Already repainted several years ago, the paint has held up incredibly well and looks just as good in person as it does in the photos! The matching black hardtop and convertible top are also remain in wonderful shape! The interior shows equally well with correct German weave carpeting and matching red boot cover when topless. A fantastic driving example of a 190SL, a car we feel is growing in value year after year. For the driver minded collector, please do not hesitate to contact us to secure this wonderful car. As always, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have, or assist the new owner with transportation of the car worldwide.
