This 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL stayed under the original owner's care until 1992 before being sold to its second owner with 51k miles. The second owner used it as a weekend driver and the current seller acquired the car in 2022. The roadster is finished in Light Blue (DB334) over a Parchment Leather (265) cabin with power provided by the original 1.9-Liter M121 Inline-Four mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Notable features include a Parchment folding soft top and paint-matched removable hardtop in Light Blue (DB334), an AM/FM radio, original push button start, factory heat, spare parts, and the original ivory steering wheel and shift knob. Recent service includes a carburetor and filter swap, 14” wheel upgrade, and oil change. The odometer displays 61k miles with approximately 800 added by the current owner. This 190SL is offered with two keys, recent service records, spare parts, and a clean Texas title.
The body is finished in Light Blue (DB334) and features a paint-matched removable hardtop. The folding soft top is trimmed in Parchment cloth with detailed photos shown in the gallery. Features include chrome stone guards, original brightwork, a driver's side mirror, and original lamps.
Upgraded 14″ steel wheels with paint matched wheel covers have been added under prior ownership with the original 13” wheels, hubcaps, and tires included in the sale. A factory spare wheel and tire is included in the trunk with a tool kit and jack. Vredestein Sprint tires are currently mounted.
The cabin is trimmed in Parchment Leather (265) across the seats, door cards, parcel shelf, and soft top boot. The leather seats show some wear and patina while retaining shape and finish nicely. The paint-matched dashboard displays original brightwork for the switchgear and accents while the original ivory steering wheel and shift knob remain in place. Features include factory push button start, heat, and an am/fm radio. Spare parts include matching sun visors. The removable hardtop features a parchment headliner and matching carpets are shown throughout the cabin.
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 left gauge needle cap is loose and can be seen up close in photos. The analog odometer displays 61k miles.
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. Recent service includes a carburetor and filter swap with the originals included in the sale.
