1963 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

This extraordinary 1963 Mercedes Benz 190 SL isthe rarest of the 190 SL breed with only 104 being dubbed 1963 models and only 50 being European delivery. The recent article in the July-August edition of Star magazine has an article called "Coming into its Own" on page 60 where it lists the number of automobiles made and what year showing this to be one of 104. Daimler-Benz began development of the 190 SL in 1952, ust before the introduction of its Pontoon sedans. Similar to the sedans, t was constructed with a welded frame-floor structure and separate sub-frame. The 190 SL had a shorter wheelbase which was exactly the same as the famous gullwing and roadster 300 SL models.

This perfect example of the 190 SL Mercedes was the dream automobile of my great aunt from MS who made the decision to order this and have it delivered to her and her husband while visiting Germany. She told me personally it was just like a dream come true to pick up her custom ordered Mercedes from the factory and to tour Germany while visiting. She recounted, hen having it shipped back to the US, he was on the same boat returning with the car, hat not one morning past where she did not wake and immediately walk to the storage compartment of the ship to look at her Mercedes.

This car resided in MS most all of its life and was driven only on special occasions. Her love and passion for this car continued her entire life. In approximately 1995 Bruce L. Adams did a full rotisserie restoration, ocumented with extensive photos and notes, aking this car brand new again. Equipped with the original Solex dual carburetors and all of its original equipment, his one owner automobile has been stored with a cover and indoors and as proven by less than 9200 miles since its restoration, as driven just enough to keep the car in excellent shape.

Approximately a year and a half ago I realized the true uniqueness and rarity of this specific car and decided to awaken this sleeping beauty. With the most sought after color combinationand being the last and best of it’s breed I decided to make it a perfect Mercedes again.I have a good friend who is highly involved with classic Mercedes Benzes and he recommended I send it to Bud’s Benz in Douglasville Georgia, ust west of Atlanta. David Latham, he owner of Bud’s Benz, ame to Memphis to look at the Mercedes and was very excited to work on such a rare automobile. In consideration of his professionalism and honesty I had a covered transport truck deliver the car to Douglasville from MS. The team at Bud’s Benz has reconditioned this last of the 190 SLs making it look factory new again for the most discerning collector to win shows around the country.

This car comes complete with the original owners manual, ool kit, pare tire, nd restoration photos.
