1958 Mercedes Benz 190SL Seller’s Guide

1958 Mercedes Benz 190SL

In July 1957, the rear license plate lamp of the Mercedes 190SL was moved to the bumper horns to enable fitting the wide license plates that were being introduced at the time. The rear bumper horns were thus a basic equipment item, while at the beginning of production the cost extra; the United States versions always had them at the front and rear as standard however. This is one of the easiest ways to distinguish a 1958 Mercedes 190SL from other year models. Often compared to its brother the 300SL, the 190SL had to live in the shadow of its more illustrious sibling. However, judging by the number of well-kept and appreciated 190SL’s that have survived, it seems to be a burden it has borne rather well. While the 190SL price range does not bring the large asking prices of the 300SL Gullwing, the cars are consistently some of the most sought-after in the European classic car collectors market.


Selling Your 1958 Mercedes Benz 190SL

Both the 190SL and the 300SL were replaced by the Mercedes-Benz 230SL in 1963. Today, these classic 1950’s Mercedes SL models are continuously praised for their beautiful design, classic lines and commanding presence. Available as a coupe with a removable hardtop or as a Roadster with a convertible soft top, or with both tops, the 190SL gave many different options to buyers of the time – the 1958 Mercedes 190SL was no exception, and in fact 1958 was a solid year for production and sales.
