This 190sl was purchased new By A doctor in Italy.
When it wasmerely 1 year old, It was purchased from the Doctor, by a US Navy Service man.... this would classify the car as a "European Delivery" 190sl. The car eventually migrated to Dallas Texas shortly after. When it migrated to Texas, the Navy man enjoyed the car for many years, until eventually passing away. The car was sitting at the home of the widow, when one day, she offered it up for sale to her neighbor, she knew he had been interested- he had tried to buy the car before with no luck. So he quickly said yes.
The 3rd owner (the neighbor of the 2nd owner) Invested many thousands of dollars worth of recent work into the car -
Complete transmission rebuildnewclutch and pressure plate,carb rebuild (nearly newwebbers)brand new fuel tankcomplete rebuild of the break systemnew hosesNew convertible toprebuiltdistributorNew carpet
And the list goes on. I have a ton of service records, and partsreceiptsdating back to the 70's. The car has brand new carpet, some of it still needs to be installed. newly recovered dash. I have the Original 13" wheels with good tires, along with the ORIGINAL white wall spare tire. I also have all hub caps and beauty rings, along with chrome trim for the fender eyebrows.
This car had never been in an accident, and doors close like new. the paint is older and is failing in areas, but looks presentable. the chrome is OK but is showing some age. There is no rust on the car that I could find and looks extremely solid.The radio delete plate is missing.
Please serious bidders only.
