GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster for purchase. The first offers of the SL class simultaneously presented two grand touring roadsters. These cars weren't just pretty faces they were technically brilliant as well from their pioneering use of fuel injection to its independent rear suspension. The 190 SL is more cruiser than the 300 SL, but they share many of the iconic styling cues that turn every head on the road. While the 190 SL popularity was extremely high, only a total of 25,881 were built over a nine year production run. These cars are very rare and a solid investment for a collector.

This 190SL had 3 previous Canadian owners of a combined 24 years. It then made its way into the states and has been owned by Precious Metal Restorations here in town where it was professionally, completely restored and has less than 300 miles on it since the restoration. During the restoration all the weld seams of the body panels were sealed with lead as per factory original. The car is refinished in its original color (DB534) Fire Engine Red. The interior is new along with the soft top and is in excellent condition.

It's powered by the rebuilt original numbers matching 1.9L inline 4 cylinder engine producing 105 horsepower and rebuilt original 4-speed manual transmission. The engine was rebuilt by Oakville Machine Shop in Oakville, Ontario which is a vintage Mercedes Specialty shop. The car has its original heater boxes and retains its original Solex carburetors that are in very good condition. The car has a hard top but needs restoration and comes with the sale but the buyer is responsible for shipping the hard top as we will not be putting it on the car.

This roadster is in excellent condition and has loads of curb appeal with classic style and an awesome color combination. It runs and drives great to cruise anywhere. We hold all receipts, pictures, and details of the restoration. Please call or email for more details!
