Selling a 1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL


1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL

The 1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL and its sister models – produced from 1955 to 1963 – were produced as a way to give everyday consumers a version of the powerful and iconic Mercedes Benz 300SL. While the general consensus was that the 190SL lacked power and performance when compared to the 300SL, today the 190SL continues to be one of the most affordable collectors cars of the Mercedes brand. At the urging of Max Hoffman, who insisted his American clientele needed an affordable alternative, the 190SL design and basic shape was arrived at almost immediately. With its headlights mounted at the leading edge of the front fender to a sloping rear trunk, and the open mouth front air intake with its floating three-pointed star, the 190SL quickly joined the ranks among the top sports cars of its day. While it was first debuted at the 1954 New York Motor Show, the car received a few styling touches from the prototype before its second premier at the Geneva Solon in March 1955. If you’re the lucky owner of a 1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL model, the team at wants to talk to you.
