The 300SL roadster and Gullwing have been iconic blue-chip collectibles for years now. And growing interest in those cars has boosted interest in these smaller, cheaper 190SLs. They don’t feature the same power or performance of their larger brothers, but these little SLs do have a lot of the same looks. And they’re great little drivers, with excellent build quality.
This 190SL looks to be in great overall condition, with red paint over a tan interior. The chassis and engine compartment are both clean, and all the chrome and trim appear to be unmarked. The paint is described as an average respray, and the body is called a 7 out of 10 – both of which make this a great candidate for a general use cruiser rather than an all-out show car.
The seller says this car is far from perfect, but mechanically, there are no issues aside from a possible carb . the toolkit and jack are also missing, so you’ll be hunting eBay’s Parts and Accessories listings to find those.
A total of 584 1955-1963 Mercedes-Benz 190SLs have sold on eBay Motors over the past few years, with average prices ranging from $30k to $60k, depending on condition. Keep in mind, this is no race car – but if you’re looking for a way to turn heads out on the road, this little red convertible with big money looks could be just the ticket. See the listing here.
