*Said to be fully restored
*Engine described as completely overhauled
*Striking colour combination


This 190SL which our trade vendor says comes to market from a full, nut-and-bolt restoration. They report that 'every aspect' of the car has been stripped and re-built, the engine said to have been completely overhauled and having a recent tune and set-up. The paint is described as very good and gleaming, the chrome finished perfectly while the interior, in black fluted leather with oatmeal carpet, is in 'as new' condition. The car has just returned from the restoration and will require running in miles and final setup before seeing active use.

One for any serious Mercedes-Benz collector, the trade vendor says this 190SL has had a 'nut and bolt' restoration that is 'in very good condition. Running in miles and final setup will be required'. Trade vendor.
