HardTop Coupe
Chassis #: 121.040.6503307
Sold for $165,000 at 2014 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach Concours.
Mercedes-Benz built 25,881 examples of the 190 SL (just 4,032 in 1956) between 1955 and 1963. It made its debut at the New York Auto Show in 1954 and was offered alongside the 300 SL. This particular example is an early-production example that is fitted with the most desirable factory specifications and offers a tremendous degree of originality. It spent a short time at the original selling dealership where its paintwork was damaged by falling glass within the showroom window and was therefore refinished in the original shade of Erdbeerrot or 'Strawberry' (DB 543).

This roadster was purchased new by Robert Roberts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and was delivered with a removable hardtop only.

The current owner acquired the car in December of 2012. At the time, the odometer shows just over 31,000 original miles. The current owner had the body stripped to bare metal and refinished, using the factory-applied dashboard paint as the standard for matching. The original Light Grey (1058) Roser leather interior, while in good condition, was treated using the Leatherique process.
