The Mercedes-Benz 190SL was a two door grand touring convertible with a removable hardtop. It was produced by Mercedes-Benz between May 1955 and February 1963. A prototype was first shown at the New York Auto Show of 1954.The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which it closely resembled both in its styling and in its fully independent suspension, with both cars having double wishbone suspensions at the front and swing axles at the rear. However, the 190SL did not use the 300SL's purpose-built tubular spaceframe W198 platform, but was instead built on the shortened monocoque R121 platform, which was modified from the W121 small saloon platform. The 190SL was powered by a completely new, slightly oversquare 1.9L straight-four SOHC engine (Type M121 BII), that developed 105 PS (77 kW; 104 hp) (or 120 gross hp) that earned itself a reputation for not running that smoothly mostly due to the difficulty in properly synchronising the twin-choke dual Solex carburetors, and that, in detuned form, was later also used in the W120 180 and W121 190 models. In fact, the four cylinder engine block of the 190SL was based on the six cylinder engine of the 300 SL

Description The most original RHD 190sl in existence? Unearthed in a garage in the north of England, this fabulous car has quite a story. Originally supplied to Rhodesia, South Africa to an Englishman stationed abroad, this fire engine red car was specified with an 050 cremeweiss hardtop to reflect the African sun’s heat. Supplied in 1958 she was his main vehicle until retirement and repatriated with the family in 1986. She was unloaded from the docks in Southampton, from where she was driven by the owner , along with his wife and children, to their new home in England. She was backed into the garage, and the door on the garage closed and that is where she stayed until late 2015 when discovered by us. the term “barn find” or “garage find” is too often applied to a car that has been left in a poor state of repair for many years, but in this instance, the term cannot be more fitting. With junior disprin in the door pocket for the children’s travel sickness or the 30+ year old till receipt from a petrol station on the m1 on its journey home, the car sits as it did back in 1986 including its tax disc!.

- ELIGIBLE FOR THE MILLE MIGLIA - Our Mercedes-Benz 190SL -chassis no. 121042-10-015590- is one of 1,650 Mercedes-Benz 190SL built for the US market in 1959. Completed at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Stuttgart in December of 1959, it was soon exported to New York and the well-known US distributorship, Maximilien Hoffman. She was purchased in early 1960s by a New York state enthusiast who then gave the car to his son in 1975. In 1997, this one entrusted to Bruce L. Adams from Sports Leicht Restorations an extensive "frame off" restoration of his beloved Mercedes 190 SL, which lasted seven years and cost around USD 111,000! In 2015, she underwent an extensive service for about USD 25,900 at Mercedes-Benz Classic Center US (Irvine - CA). Totally restored and very well maintained, our Mercedes 190 SL is in perfect cosmetic and mechanical condition. She comes with her restoration record, and a copy of her Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Data Card. And the most important, she is now eligible for the Mille Miglia. US title - European taxes paid
