"The car works well and has an updated engine with a 120 cylinder head, new Weber carburetors, and electronic ignition. Even in terms of appearance, the car is stunning, despite a few small flaws. There is nothing that needs to be fixed, and it is completely ready to drive."

Description

The car was purchased new in 1956 by a landowner near Alingsås, who drove it for many years until selling it to a family in Stockholm.

They drove it for several years before deciding to renovate it in the 1970s.

Mercedes has never been particularly rusted, but during renovation, the interior was renovated in the original style, and it received a fresh coat of paint in the original colour.

The current owner purchased the car five years ago and has since upgraded it with new carburetors and electronic ignition systems. He believes that any other enthusiast can enjoy this classic because it runs extremely well and is fun to drive.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    Everything works perfectly and has recently been serviced. The top (120 horsepower) and electronic ignition system have been installed. New Weber carburetors have also been fitted to replace the originals, which are still included. This means you have approximately 120 hp rather than the specified 105 hp.

  • Interior condition:

    It was professionally reupholstered during a renovation in the 1970s and is still in great condition. The early 190s had the same sports seats as the 300 roadster and coupe.

  • Exterior condition:

    An older professional repaint that has stood the test of time. However, there are some minor flaws on the boot lid and the rear edge of the bonnet. There are also some minor rust blisters on the rear edge of the left rear wing. Chrome, wheels with new tyres, no remarks. The convertible top appears to have been scarcely used and is in excellent condition.

  • General condition:

    A great, well-kept, and enjoyable Mercedes that runs smoothly and keeps up with the pace of Swedish roads.

Facts about the model

MB 190 SL tillverkades 1955 - 1963 i totalt 25881 exemplar. Förebilden var den större 300 SL men i enklare och billigare utförande. En 190 SL kostade 1955 16.500 D-mark medan en 300 SL kostade nästan det dubbla, 29.000 D-mark. Mycket hämtades från 4-dörrars sedanserien såsom den nya motorn med överliggande kamaxel, fram och bakvagn och andra mekaniska delar. Karossen är dock en helt egen för att ge eleganta linjer. Vid en renovering kan således reservdelar från pontonmodellen användas vilket ger en lättare och billigare renovering än av 300 SL.
