Description

This car was first registered on November 1st, 1961 in Stuttgart Germany. The car was purchased by a Mercedes employee and registered in his wife’s name. It was driven on a regular basis with the exception winter months and always garaged. The car was eventually stored from 1972 until 1993 before being purchased by a family friend from Augsburg, Germany. A restoration was done in 1995 by a Mercedes specialist in Augsburg, Germany. During the restoration the car was restored in the original color 190 (Graphite) with Red Leather interior. The engine and drive train were completely re-done and Weber Carburetors were installed. The chrome was either re-chromed or replaced. All instruments as well as the radio are original. The third owner from Herrsching, Germany purchased the car in early 2001 as part of a collection, from the owner in Augsburg and brought the car to the United States. In 2002, the 190SL made it way to a collector in Lakewood, WA where the car has been well maintained and a part of a private collection.
