1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL photograph

1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL
Sold for $115,500 at 2021 Mecum : Monterey.
The design of the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was similar to that of its larger 300 SL sibling, sharing such features as the stylish horizontal grille, flared wheel arches and alloy doors, hood and trunk. It rested on the same wheelbase as the 300SL, had a wider track, and powered by a sophisticated SOHC inline-4 cylinder engine backed by a four-speed manual transmission and suspended by an independent suspension all round. Racing-inspired drum brakes with finned aluminum drums provided the stopping power. The interiors were comfortable and luxurious, combining leather seats and upholstery with Mercedes-Benz's signature quality finishing and tasteful brightwork. Like its costlier 300SL sibling, the 190SL could be equipped with a sculptured detachable hard top for protection in all kinds of weather.

This particular 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster has received a comprehensive frame-off restoration and finished in silver metallic paint with a matching hard top and contrasting black interior fitted with tinted sun visors, in-dash clock and a Becker Europa AM/FM radio. The 1.9-liter SOHC inline-4 engine is equipped with correct twin Solex carburetors and backed by a 4-speed manual transmission.
