Differentiated from its 190SL counterparts by a few body changes, the 1956 Mercedes 190SL was defined by the addition of chrome trim strips on the upper edges of the doors and by the large taillights chosen for this 1956 model. The 190SL sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, which it closely resembled in its styling, engineering, detailing and fully independent suspension. Both cars had double wishbone suspensions at the front and swing axles in the rear. Interestingly, the Mercedes 190SL did not use the 300SL’s purpose-built tubular frame W198 platform, but was built on a shortened R121 platform that was modified from the W121. The 190SL price range during production years started around the $4,000 mark. Today, prices for those looking to sell classic Mercedes 190SL models can be quite high for a well-maintained, pristine example.
