1963 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL
Sold for $214,500 at 2013 Gooding and Company - Pebble Beach.
The Mercedes-Benz 190SL debuted at the 1954 New York Auto Show alongside the 300 SL Gullwing Coupe. It was conceived by Max Hoffman, the US Mercedes-Benz importer, as a more affordable, similarly styled open companion model for its complex and costly 300SL. The 190 SL was given an advanced monocoque construction and conventional front-opening doors and normal-width sills offering ease of entry and exit. The 'SL' represented 'Sport Leicht' or 'Sports Light' which it shared with its older sibling. The name was derived from its lightweight construction which included the aluminum hood, doors, and rear deck lid.

The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was produced from 1955 to 1963. It was a groundbreaking model for Mercedes-Benz, and its successful concept and execution evolved into the 'Pagoda' SL roadster lineup that followed from 1963 through 1971.

This example is finished in its factory-original white DB 50 exterior with a red leather upholstery, matching carpeting, a dark red soft top, and bright trim. It has been given a comprehensive restoration.

The car is fitted with a Becker radio, a rare hardtop in white, a set of steel wheels with hubcaps and trim rings, a stainless steel exhaust system, and whitewall tires. There are correct Solex PHH carburetors, a 4-speed manual gearbox, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
