About This Car
1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL (W121)
White with Red Leather Interior
Road Tax Exempt. ULEZ Exempt.*
Built in November 1960, this Mercedes-Benz 190SL was destined for the USA market and first registered in Maryland. It was imported to Britain in 2013, with a letter on file from Mercedes-Benz UK confirming these facts.
In 2017 almost £7,000 was spent on the fuel and injection system of this car to ensure it runs exactly as it should. Wishbone bushes and king pins were also addressed at the same time.
In 2013 almost £5,000 was spent on chrome work and finish, including the all important grille star. Further invoices from this and the following year show new tyres and significant work to the suspension of the car.
Still wearing it’s original paint and interior, this remarkably preserved car must be seen.
Documents on file detail a significant amount of time and money have been lavished on this car since arriving in the UK, including a refurbishment of the fuel tank, fuel system, carburettor and all relevant fuel lines.
Accompanying this car:
2 Keys / Original Wallet / Original Manufacturers Manual / Paperwork dating from 2013
*(All vehicles built on or before 1979 are exempt from road tax, on a one year rolling basis, assuming no further changes to this in forthcoming budgets)

Where will your Mercedes-Benz take you?
Although the R107 is renowned for build quality, there is one chink in the armour - the bulkhead. Many cars that present well from the outside are hiding internal rust. Water from outside the car should drain out through specially designed channels, but over time, these become blocked forcing water inside the car. Once water has breached the blower motor cover in front of the windscreen, it slowly wreaks havoc from inside out. This delicate area did not have rust protection from the factory, and as the metal deteriorates it the water ingress can lead to faulty electrics, damp carpets and musty smells inside the cabin.
All our cars come with a 36 month bulkhead warranty.
