According to the Mercedes-Benz Data Card, this beautiful LHD 190SL - VIN No: 12104010016673 and Engine No: 12192110016776 is a Matching Numbers European specification car and was built on 21st December 1959 in Stuttgart and delivered new to its first owner in Zurich, Switzerland on 29th March 1960.

It remained in Switzerland until 1980 when it was purchased by a Mr Steve Holmgren of Santa Barbara, California, USA and he took the car back to California and had it fully restored in 1984. Mr Holmgren kept the car for 37 years and drove approximately 14,000 Kilometers (9,000 miles) in the car before selling it at auction in May 2017 for $73,500 when it was bought by the current English owner. He imported the car to the UK and it was registered here in September 2017 and given the period number plate 860 UYX

The car was re-trimmed in America in 2014/15 and the Engine was given a top-end overhaul and numerous other components replaced in early 2017 and Mr Holmgren spent in excess of $37,000 on these works before it was listed for sale.

The paintwork was not the best and some paint bubbling had appeared on some panels, so the new owner had the car completely stripped to bare metal and the colour was changed from White to the beautiful and period Mercedes Gunmetal Grey Metallic which was only completed earlier this year. In addition to the repaint, all exterior chrome was removed and sent away for re-chroming, a new Soft Top was fitted along with all new rubber seals, Hard Top refurbished and painted and all this amounted to nearly £20,000.

The car has still has its original KMS speedometer as fitted when new and it is now reading 74,150 Kilometers, but we know that it's true mileage is 174,150 Kilometers (108,214 miles) from new.

Finished in Gunmetal Grey Metallic with new Red Leather trim, new Burgundy Soft Top, Factory Hard Top in Gunmetal, original 1.9 Litre 4 Cylinder Engine, 4 Speed Gearbox and its original Steel Wheels and Chrome Hub Caps. It also comes with both Exterior and Indoor Car Covers.

We are just in the process of preparing the car for sale and we are giving the car a pre-sales service and new MOT. Full photographs to follow upon completion.
