1961 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster
Our eye-catching 190SL comes with a perfectly contrasting Red leather interior and Black convertible top to the classic Mercedes silver. An original matching number vehicle from Germany that was imported to the UK in 2001 for restoration.
All Cosmetic, Mechanicals, Brakes and Chassis have been restored correctly and properly with genuine parts. The 190 SL has been used during summer months for commuting to a local park for family days out and picnics being used sparingly since its restoration in early 2017. The owner of this SL is downsizing and moving on to different projects. In 2001, the car underwent a full mechanical restoration by Joe Macari. Since then the car has been stored by the previous owner as an investment. Since coming out of storage the car underwent a revamp to get it back to the same standard from when it was released from Joe Macari.
The revamp performed on this vehicle was carried out during February – March 2017 by O’Keeffe Coach-trimming & Restoration, of Warlingham, Surrey. This included a mechanical restoration stripping of all mechanical components and rebuilding with genuine care. Recent bills of over £10,000 show all the work completed.
Notable work completed consists of all serviceable items such as oils, perishables and ignition system being replaced including all seals, hoses and gaskets. Complete suspension and brake clean-up and rebuild to ensure full functionality. Complete carburettor-rebuild and tune-up to ensure the engine is running smoothly with full power. Complete tank removal and blasting to ensure clean fuel is available to the engine, new gearbox and engine mounts, and supporting gearbox linkages.
