This Nevada desert Mercedes 190 SL (built in 1960 and registered as a '61) has been owned by the present owner for over 20 years. During this time this rust-free (rare), low mileage example has gone through a complete and total ground–up restoration. Attention to exacting detail was goal to this project. All options and numbers match the data card provided by Mercedes Benz. This restoration started with all body and chassis parts stripped and/or blasted. All floors and trunk are original, rust free and all doors and lids match this chassis number. It is painted with Glassurit’s primer and urethane single-stage matching the correct Fire Engine Red DB534. The chassis, suspension, trunk and engine bay is painted with the proper DB169 and semi-gloss blacks.

All mechanics have been checked, rebuilt or renewed with Mercedes parts where ever possible and necessary, including engine, clutch, brake system, suspension, window lifts, and exhaust. All new rubber installed through-out. Less than 100 miles driven since this work was completed. Everything works in the car, including original radio, clock, lighting, blower (with its original cardboard air box) and wipers, etc.

The interior is completed with DB1060 Cream leather and Tan German square-weave carpet (with correct wide cotton binding). Also comes with the original type Grey rubber matting and Grey kick panels. All gauges work and have been reconditioned. All interior brightwork and hardware has been plated, polished, or installed new as original.

This 190SL comes with a new Gahh German canvas top and a highly polished convertible frame. It has 5 new 6.40x13 Goodrich tires and original jack. Great attention was given all the plated pieces, including grille, windshield frame and exterior mirror. The rebuilt Hirschmann antenna matches the original, including the red tip and cable. It has an original owner’s manual and pouch and correct tool kit.

As you can see with the pictures and description, this restoration, with thousands of hours invested, is intended to be as correct, original (matching data card) and “Showroom” as possible. It needs nothing to show at any event.
