The current owner of this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster purchased it all the way back in 1975 from the original owner.

Additionally, this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster really impresses in person with laser straight body lines and a nice shine to the older repaint. The original chrome and trim are also well above average with only slight blemishes that do not detract from this classics awesome curb appeal. The soft top does have a small tear so that will eventually have to be replaced, but otherwise this example really stands out for its originality. The interior is also super clean throughout with minimal levels of wear.
The engine compartment to this 1959 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster gives the appearance of typical driver quality- which is a pretty big deal for a 59 year original classic.
