We are currently preparing our 1957 Mercedes 190SL for resale. This very rare and unique car has been sitting for a little while and although in great mechanical order she is not running perfectly so we are spending some time getting her back to her best and ready to find a new home.
As you can see, we have dropped the fuel out as it is very dirty and old so the system will be cleaned out followed by new fuel being added.
The system was flooding so we have removed the air filter set up, free’d up the needles and adjusted the carbs.
The car is once again running beautifully and ready to impress at any show this summer.
This incredibly rare, original and award winning 190 SL was first registered on 11th November 1957. Purchased for the sum of £1957.00 by Violet Dorothy Mills, part of the Bertram Mills Circus family who’s residence in Knightsbridge is present on the original registration book.
The car comes with a huge file of history, original documentation, family-trees, newspaper clippings, awards, MOT’s, service files and receipts.
This beautiful example comes un-restored, un-touched and totally original. The car has aged wonderfully and it’s rarity in this form makes this a fantastic investment opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
