Part 300: ’56 Mercedes-Benz 190SL
This is another one of those classic cars that were ignored for such a long time and are now on fire. They are elegant convertibles with impeccable build-quality typical of Mercedes-Benz cars of this period. The downside of the 190SL is the somewhat anemic performance. Since you can’t really do too much about that, just put the top down and enjoy the ride. Today’s featured car might actually have something we haven’t seen before – seats from a 300SL. The seller says it is a rare option offered by the factory back in the day. I know one of our readers, Brian, will chime in and let us know if that is in fact a factory option. He’ll also probably tells us about the rest of the car from the few photos available on the listing. The 190SL does come with a factory hard top and that is a good thing. It is a numbers matching car too. The asking price is $80,000. We’ve seen them for more and for less. All depends on the quality of the work and history available. Click here for the listing.
