FOR SALE: A beautiful, restored 190SL in wonderful condition with matching hardtop.

EQUIPMENT
Blue leather upholstery, Folding soft-top in blue, Removable hardtop in silver, Hubcaps in silver, Driver and passenger side door mirrors, Interior rear-view mirror, Lockable glove compartment, Dash clock, Ashtray, Carpeted boot mat, Spare wheel, Jack.

EXTERIOR
The classically beautiful lines of the SL never fail to impress, looking particularly elegant beneath our studio lighting. The metallic silver paintwork presents superbly all round and has to be one of the most iconic colour choices for any vintage Mercedes. Having been restored to a high standard in recent years, the overall finish is extremely good with all the brightwork retaining an excellent shine throughout.

Both front and rear Bosch light lenses are in perfect condition with no cracks or moisture ingress to report. The current owner has recently treated the SL to a brand new soft-top in blue, making for a lovely contrast against the sublime silver paintwork. The SL also comes equipped with a removable hardtop in silver.

INTERIOR
The interior space is a stunning place to be with the brightwork of the dashboard, push-pull switchgear, and over-sized steering wheel in ivory-white. The blue bucket style seats, matching door cards, sun visors, and dash top are all in excellent condition having been re-upholstered to a very high standard in recent years. This example has also been treated to a complete set of new carpets which remain in superb condition throughout with blue piped edges.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The 190SL is powered by Mercedes 1.9-litre M121 in-line 4 engine. The engine bay looks in first-rate condition, with most ancillary components having been either restored or replaced to maintain a fresh appearance. Most recently the valve clearances were adjusted and the carburettors tuned; a fresh oil service and MOT have also just been carried out to ensure the car remains in fine mechanical order, ready to be enjoyed. On test the fully synchronised four-speed manual gearbox feels smooth to operate, pulling through the rev range with ease.

WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The 13-inch wheels look fantastic with their freshly painted hubcaps. Upon close inspection, each wheel is in fine order with no unsightly curb marking or scratches. The steel wheels are shod in a matching set of period correct Michelin ZX tyres, all with plenty of tread remaining. The power-assisted drum brakes do a fine job, operating faultlessly on test.

HISTORY FILE
The Mercedes 190SL was first registered in Germany in February 1956. Since then it has undergone a recent restoration before being purchased and imported to the UK in 2015 by the current owner. It is now fully UK-registered with a V5C document and all taxes paid. Upon arrival at 4 Star the car had a full health check and, despite now being exempt, was given a fresh 12 month MOT for the new keepers peace of mind.
