1959 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class1959 Mercedes-Benz 190slOnly 65K original miles/Never seen snow!Comes with both soft top and matching hard top!
This beautiful roadster is in fantastic shape for a car nearly sixty years old. It has only had two owners. The current owner has owned the car since 1966. He is a car dealer and collector and has kept the car in a climate controlled garage. Perfect candidate for a full restoration. Runs like a top. Seats need to be redone.
The 190 SL was unveiled on February 6, 954, n New York, longside the 300 SL “gullwing”. It was designed more as an elegant two-seater touring model than a purebred sports car. It took engineers only five months to develop the open-top car, hich used a shortened frame floor assembly from the Mercedes 180 (W120), ombined with a single-joint swing axle sourced from the 220 (W180). The front suspension also came from the 180 model.Under the bonnet, he 190 SL had a newly developed 105HP 1.9-liter four-cylinder engine with an overhead camshaft. Performance was good for the era, s the roadster could complete the 0-to-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in 14 seconds and reach a top speed of over 170 km/h (106 mph).Series production began in May 1955 and the 190 SL was available as a soft-top roadster as well as a coupe with removable hardtop, ith or without the soft-top as an option.
