Sold for $92,400 at 2020 Gooding & Company : Amelia Island.
This 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL has a documented history and was in the care of its original owner for over four decades. It was purchased new in 1961 from Dan Gillum Motors of Reno, Nevada, by local resident Dayton McDonald for $5,406. It left the factory finished in Fire Engine Red (DB 534) and was fitted with a black hardtop and Creme leather upholstery. The current owner acquired the 190 SL in 2014 and invested over $60,000 in mechanical and cosmetic work since then, including a complete repaint, new soft top, new dash upholstery, and other work.

The 1,897cc single overhead cam four-cylinder engine has twin Solex 44 PHH carburetors helping to produce 105 horsepower at 5,750 RPM. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel servo-assisted drum brakes.
