Very well maintained 190SL. This 190SL drives great, and is in excellent condition. As the write up below will state, this SL has been continuosly maintained through the years. The paint is excellent, as well as the interior and mechanicals. The engine and the transmission were rebuilt in 2013. If your goal is to have a very professionally sorted 190SL, this is it. Take a look at the "In the owners own word" shown below.... Car purchased in 1984 partially restored, in primer I began its restoration in 1989, finishing it in 1991 just before the Stamford, CN 190SL convention. At this convention I also showed my 1956 190SL show car, restored at the same time. I eventually sold the show car to the Prince of Monaco in 1994 as a gift for his son, Crown Prince Albert, in memory of Princess Grace who, in the 1956 movie High Society, drove an in a 1956 190SL with Frank Sinatra. I used the car in the first New England 1000 rally in 1992 and in the 20th anniversary of the New England 1000 in 2012 The car has been shown and driven in many National 190SL conventions, and is a great and well sorted #2+ driver. I have shown the car at many local, regional and national shows, over the last 26 years, with great pleasure and success. I brought the car to the 2003 Classic Adelaide rally (with 25 other Mercedes from the USA) for the first week we rallied in and around Adelaide, South Australia before driving from Adelaide to Melbourne (about 1000 miles) over 5 days, then taking the overnight car ferry the Tasmania for a 7 day tour over the road course for the Targa Tasmania. It was a great trip with the car running without issue. In 2008 I brought the car to Hong Kong, China to run in the Hong Kong to Beijing 10 day rally Again the car ran flawlessly. This car was restored to be a 2+ driver and has been continuously maintained to provide the performance and appearance one would expect for a #2+ car. The car is now ready to begin it’s life with the next sophisticated and discerning owner. Asking $150,000. I brought to car to David Latham of Bud’s Benz to properly present the car and for his assistance with the sale of the car for what it is and what it’s potential is going forward. Tom Hamilton is the immediate past President on the 190SL Group, from late 1999 to early 2013.
