The Mercedes Benz 190SL is a classic by any standard. This example is a 1958 model, car number 8501780 putting it near the middle of the 2722 cars produced for the 1958 model year.
Our shop has just completed a substantial freshening of its older restoration. The car was previously restored and a photo album of the restoration process accompanies the car. This was a very solid car with reasonably good floors which were repaired during that earlier restoration. While acceptable, we felt the overall condition of this car warranted a higher standard. Consequently, our shop has replaced the floors with OEM quality replacements so that it is now as nice underneath as it is topside.
Among other work we've installed new Mercedes OEM chrome rocker moldings and a new top in teh correct canvas material along with new chrome top bow and new top boot. Note the car does not include a hard top.
The bright work and chrome is all very good without any pitting. The interior is in great shape with clean, unmarked seat upholstery. The carpets and door panels are in good order as well.
The engine has been rebuilt and retains its original Solex carburetors. It has good oil pressure at all temperatures and maintains a normal temperature range when underway. The transmission shifts well and has had new shift linkage bushings recently installed. Overall, the car runs and drives very well.
If you would like to see, inspect, and drive this car in person, our showroom and shop is only one mile from the St. Louis airport making us convenient to visit from just about anywhere. If interested contact us ASAP.

In an article for the October 1989 issue of Car Collector, Dennis Adler described a Mercedes-Benz 540 K Sport Cabriolet A as “a styling bridge between Mercedes’ more formal cabriolet designs and the sportier 540 K Spezial Roadsters.” Take one glance at that automobile, which is offered here today, and the resemblance is clear. It has the desirable feature of a radiator set back behind the fr
The grandly named Offener Tourenwagen was Mercedes-Benz’s name for, in its literal translation, a four-passenger open tourer. This design on the 500 K chassis was one of the few bodies for that model to share obvious visual DNA with the powerful S and SS models that had proceeded it in the 1920s. It had a light, sporting look, with long fenders and a low-slung beltline under its jaunty fabric to

At the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes-Benz introduced a new version of the celebrated 300 SL wearing open coachwork, the 300 SL roadster. In an early suggestion of the increasing focus the manufacturer would place on luxury cars over the ensuing decades, the new roadster was above all a more refined car than its gull-winged predecessor.There was no denying the 300 SL’s mechanical performance,
