The Bramah Collection
1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL
Registration no. 814UXE
Chassis no. 12104010018063
*Older restoration
*Comes with hardtop
*Left-hand drive


The 190SL triumphed when it came to clothing trusted rugged mechanicals with elegant bodywork: Today those strong mechanicals make the 190 a highly tempting classic and this older restored, left-hand drive example is running well. The bodywork is generally good and straight, save for a dent in the nearside back wing (easily rectified by a 'smart' repairer). Brightwork is presentable and the wheels still have the correct hubcaps and trim rings. Interior-wise everything appears present and correct: The dashboard is clean and tidy while the driver's seat shows signs of use – the passenger seat is in better order. A worthy candidate for gentle re-commissioning.
