This 1958 Mercedes-Benz 190SL is finished in White over a Black upholstery and accented with a removable body-color hardtop. Power comes from a 1.9-liter M121 four-cylinder paired to a 4-speed manual transmission and still retains the original Solex carburetors. Features include chrome hubcaps, a paint-matched dashboard, original becker radio, and an original jack. The car underwent a prior restoration and the body and brightwork presents well. The odometer displays 54,722 miles and the car currently does not run requiring mechanical restoration. This 190SL is offered by the seller in Chicago, IL with a set of keys for the ignition, owner's manual, spare paint-matched hubcaps, and a clean Vermont title.
The bodywork is finished in White and is believed to have undergone a previous restoration. All the brightwork appears in good condition with no signs of fading or other damage. The car does not come with a soft top but instead features a removable paint-matched hardtop. Additional features include chrome stone guards, a chrome gas cap, and original glass. The paint has been buffed, corrected, and ceramic coated. The seller notes minor imperfections in the paint which are documented in the gallery.
13″ steel wheels with chrome wheel covers measure 13x5 on all four corners and are shown with Sears white wall tires measuring 185/80. A spare set of painted hubcaps are shown in the trunk along with the original jack.
The cabin is trimmed in Black upholstery across the seats, door cards, and parcel shelf. The seats appear to have been previously recovered and separation can be seen on the seat backs and door cards. The paint-matched dashboard displays brightwork for the switchgear and accents while the original ivory steering wheel and wooden shift knob remain in place. The removable hardtop features a Red headliner that shows some sagging and tears. The seller notes the keys with the car only fit the ignition and not the door locks.
The dual spoke ivory steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer and 7k-rpm tachometer as well as gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The odometer displays 54,722 miles and true mileage is unknown. The seller notes some damage from moisture on the inside of the main gauges.
The 1.9-liter M121 inline-four was rated for 104 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque when new and features a single overhead camshaft along with dual side-draft carburetors. The original Solex carburetors are still with the car. The car can be rolled but the seller notes the engine does not turn and the car will need to be mechanically sorted. Upon inspection the coolant and engine oil were both clean when drained recently.
A thorough walk around video highlighting both the exterior and interior has been provided below.
