Description:

1960 Mercedes-Benz 190-Series 190D

THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owneris this vintage 1960 Mercedes Benz 190D Diesel Ponton!
Finished currently in grey primer, this 99.99% rust-free Arizona specimen shows the original powder blue color with light tan/bone and black interior. It sports a very good running four cylinder diesel engine mated to the factory 4 speed manual transmission on the column, It has a non-working radio, original Benz hubcaps on steel wheels with new rubber. The WORKING odometer shows 02,574 and is believed to be just over 102,000 but I cannot verify the actual mileage. This almost sixty year-old classic is being sold with clean and clear notarized Arizona title, this is a great find for the Mercedes Benz collector or someone who wants a good driving solid foundation for a full restoration.......for the cost of the sales tax alone on a new, quickly-depreciating C class sedan!

THE BODY AND TRIM
This exterior of this 1960 Benz is in straight, dry, clean rust-free condition overall ready for a new paint finish. The grille is beautiful and all of the chrome and trim is intact with fading, pitting and other imperfections like worn rubber trim, pitting on the glass, un-openable trunk and one mismatched tire.

THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of this old Ponton is a mixed bag with newer upholstery and carpet and lots of "patina" including cracks on the steering wheel and vinyl dash, missing rear door panels, sagging headliner and general wear on the trim bits. The key is currently jammed in the ignition but starts just fine with auxiliary switch [the small black surround panel is currently removed]

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1960 190D starts easily with good running engine, tight shifting transmission, responsive steering and fairly solid suspension. It is quite a flashback experience driving this rare cool classic! Check out the test drive video here:
