Max Hoffman, the US Importer, persuaded Mercedes-Benz management to build a simpler, less costly open model to complement the 300SL 'Gullwing.' The result was the 190SL.

This example was originally delivered to Dale Smith, of Ulysses, Kansas, by Economy Motors, of Amarillo, Texas. It was used until 1963, and then put away in a barn where it would reside until its sale to a Kansas-based restorer in 1991, where it remained until recently. At the time, the car had under 38,000 actual miles. The car was restored to factory standards in its original strawberry Red Metallic (DB543), with a new, tan leather interior (1060), original hides included, a new soft top, also in tan, and an Ivory (DB608) hard top. Other desirable factory accessories include a spare fuel can, original-type radio rebuilt by Becker, and the optional plated gearshift knob. There is an overhead-cam four-cylinder engine that displaces 1897cc and breaths through a twin Solex carburetors. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

In 2013, this car was offered for sale at RM Auctions Scottsdale, Arizona sale. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $129,250 inclusive of buyer's premium.
