The W121 needs no formal introduction. Long since coveted as a collector piece with industry speculation of valuations in excess of 400-500k in coming years has already resulted in these cars being sought by investment groups. The 548th car built by Mercedes-Benz in 1959, his rare survivor was, n addition to its complete restoration once in its lifetime by its prior collector owner of 20 years, ecently professionally refreshed while maintaining original vintage parts. Stored in a climate controlled environment and has not been in any inclement weather since restoration. The car includes additional original parts or accessories, wo sets of keys complete on vintage MB keyring(s), wner’s Manual, omplete Tool Kit and Wrap, riginal Jack and spare as well as a 5th finished to match Wheel Cap.

This 190 of course runs and drives flawlessly, ll gears operate smoothly and all systems/lights/radio etc function including the dash, ourtesy and clearance lights. The vintage Becker Mexico is operative inclusive of the intriguing auto search/scan operations and is partnered with the original vintage cloth wrapped speaker and housing. In addition to cosmetics the G.E.A.R.S® team has insured the car is mechanically sorted inclusive of all fluids being flushed/changed during inspection/service.

The car is on display on the dealerships showroom floor. She of course gets far more attention than any of the exotics on display . . . regardless of make or price point.

This is a rare find and there are no issues with this highly sought Mercedes-Benz. Yes, he car, nterior, runk and engine bay is that clean. Aside from age/dust and some limited flaking the underneath maintains is finish from the prior restoration. In the operations of a well respected remarketing firm in the European/exotics business for over 18 years this is one of the most perfect 190SL’s we have ever experienced at this price point. Even more relevant is rarity of the color and the purity in the feel and drive as so much of the original parts were maintained over the years and while in excellent condition the vintage feel and patina is still present.
Many modern restorations take on the feel of a “kit car” as the entirety of the car is replaced with modern materials. What left is all new, sually very cheap or poorly made materials adorning a vintage shell. Our Team maintains the position that it is the originality combined with the look and feel of older and or original parts that preserve a vintage car. This being said, e strive to maintain the purity of any car, intage or otherwise, e intend to offer on our retail arm.
