1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL

Mercedes-Benz 190SL

RP Exotics is pleased to offer this 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL! This stunning example has received a complete frame-off nut and bolt restoration. Finished in Anthracite Grey Metallic over a brown leather interior, it is in an attractive color combination.

This car has had absolutely no expense spared bringing it to its current condition. It was completely gone through by one of the foremost 190SL restorers- Bruce L. Adams. He specializes in bringing tired 190SL’s back to their original glory, and has been producing some of the finest examples in existence for the past 40 years. Simply put, this is one of the finest examples that money can buy.

This car lived in Missouri for a number of years prior to the restoration. Our client bought the car and used it as a driver quality 190SL for a year or so. He then decided that it would be worth having the car gone through. He spent roughly $175,000.00 to bring the car to its current condition. Prior to the restoration, the car was drivable, but the paint was past its prime as was much of the car. The SOLEX carburetors have been switched for a set of Weber’s for ease of maintenance. The engine has been fully rebuilt to Mercedes Benz specification. There is no stone left unturned with this car. The interior has been fully redone, the paint has been fully redone, the top is new, the interior is new, the brakes are new, the motor has been rebuilt, and much more. Once the car was complete, and returned to St. Louis, the front clip was covered in clear film to help protect the work that was completed. We have been provided a stack of receipts from the rigorous restoration, and it has been fully documented. 

There are no excuses for this wonderful example. It runs and drives exactly as it should. It is an absolutely phenomenal car. Trades are always welcome. For more details, please call Alex Long at 309-202-9335.
