The Mercedes-Benz 190 SL was launched at the New York Motor Show in February 1954. Under the influence of Max Hoffman, the official importer of Mercedes-Benz in the United States, the brand developed this "little sister" to the 300SL, with comfort given importance over performance. The 190 SL took over the independent coil spring suspension of the 180 Ponton sedan. It was powered by a modern four cylinder of 1897cc, developing 105bhp, and mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. Its elegance combined with healthy handling and a quality finish made the 190 SL a real success.
The vehicle one offer is exceptional in more than one way. It is one of the last models from 1955, delivered new in Germany. Moreover, it underwent a comprehensive restoration during 2006/ 2007 in Holland by the Mercedes specialist, Van Dijk , at a total cost of € 62, 000. It was delivered new on February 21, 1956 by the Mercedes agent in Mannheim, and acquired by an American from Bogart, Georgia, in 1968, who kept it until 2006, when the current owner acquired it. It was during this year that he undertook the comprehensive restoration. Since the completion of restoration, this 190 SL has been maintained by Van Dijk. Its condition is very impressive in terms of quality. The thick folder, presented in a box, is composed of the original workshop manual and the complete set of invoices of the restoration and the regular service. In short, this very beautiful example is ready for the summer and sunny roads.

1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL

La Mercedes 190 SL est présentée au New York Motor Show de février 1954. Sous l’influence de Max Hoffman, importateur officiel de Mercedes-Benz aux Etats-Unis, la marque a développé cette « petite sœur » de la 300 SL, privilégiant le confort sur le sport. La 190 SL reprenait la suspension indépendante à ressorts hélicoïdaux de la berline 180 Ponton. Elle fut équipée d'un sobre et moderne 4 cylindres de 1. 897 cm3 développant 105 ch, couplé à une boîte mécanique à 4 rapports. Son élégance combinée à un comportement routier sain et une finition de qualité ont permis à la 190 SL de connaitre un vrai succès.
Le véhicule présenté est exceptionnel à plus d’un titre. D’une part, il s’agit d’un des derniers modèles de 1955, livré neuf en Allemagne et d’autre part, elle a bénéficié d’une restauration totale en 2006/ 2007 en Hollande par le spécialiste des Mercedes, Van Dijk, d’un coût total de 62 000€. Livrée neuf le 21 février 1956 par l’agent Mercedes de Mannheim. En 1968, elle est acquise par un américain de Bogart en Georgie qui la conservera jusqu’en 2006, date à laquelle le propriétaire actuel en fait l’acquisition. C’est cette année-là qu’il entreprend la restauration complète. Depuis la fin des travaux, cette 190 SL est toujours entretenue par celui qui l’a restaurée, Van Dijk. Son état est très impressionnant tant la qualité est au rendez-vous. L’épais dossier présenté dans une boîte est composé du ‘workshop manual’ original, les factures complètes de la restauration et de l’entretien très régulier et l’historique. Bref, il s’agit d’un très bel exemplaire, prêt à passer l’été sur les routes ensoleillées.
