The Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a two-door luxury roadster produced from 1955 to 1963. Referred to internally as the W121, it was first show to the public at the New York Auto Show of 1954.Available with matching hardtop, the 190 SL was an attractive, more-affordable alternative to the Mercedes 300 SL, sharing the same basic styling, engineering and fully independent suspension. The 190 SL, however, did not use the tubular space frame of the 300 model, instead being built on a shortened monocoque chassis.Powered by a 1.9 liter 120 HP straight 4 SOHC engine, it was fitted with twin choke Solex carburetors. Top speed was 106 mph.Presented is a local Berks County car, collector owned for over 20 years. This SL was the 153rd car built in 1959. With just one original color re-spray, the 190 SL retains the natural patina and presence of a 56 year- old classic sports car. The 190 SL market has exploded with restored cars selling for as much as $300,000. However, still a bargain when compared to the market for the “Big Brother” 300 SL with examples selling in the 1.5-2 million dollar range. • Older Restoration• Weber Carburetors• 4-Speed Transmission• Included Optional Hard Top
