This Mercedes 190SL has an unusual history, as it was delivered new in Mozambique and registered there on 19 August 1956, as its original logbook confirms. This precious document shows the car’s various owners until 1983, when it was bought by a French expatriate who became attached to the car and had it imported into France in 1986. It subsequently remained in the Manche department and in the ownership of the same lady until 2011, as a substantial file of bills for service and other work confirms. We encourage enthusiasts to study this file: although the car has never undergone a full restoration, a good deal of work has been carried out to keep it on the road. In 1993, for example, an extensive overhaul included the replacement of the piston rings. The car was repainted in 1995 in an elegant shade of blue-grey, in which it was already finished when it arrived in France. The bodywork is sound, although the underbody shows some signs of the car’s earlier life. The black leather upholstery is original, whereas the dashboard has been fitted with several non-original accessories, such as the steering wheel or instruments. The alpaca hood has been refurbished more recently and there is a small occasional seat in the back. We noted the absence of any heating system, certainly unnecessary in Mozambique. The owner confirmed that the car would be given a general service by Mercedes-Benz before the auction. With regular maintenance, the car may continue to be driven, but a demanding enthusiast may choose to restore the car to its former glory from 1956.

1956 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL

Cette Mercedes 190 SL présente un historique peu commun puisqu’elle a été délivrée neuve au Mozambique et y fut immatriculée le 19 août 1956, ainsi qu’en témoigne son livret d’immatriculation original. Ce précieux document témoigne des différents propriétaires qu’elle a connu jusqu’en 1983, année de son achat par une expatriée française qui, attachée à son automobile, se chargera de son importation dans l’hexagone en 1986. La voiture restera ensuite dans la Manche, entre les mêmes mains jusqu’à 2011, ainsi qu’en témoigne un important dossier de factures d’entretien et de travaux divers. Nous invitons les amateurs à en prendre connaissance, car si cette voiture n’a jamais bénéficié d’une restauration complète, de nombreux travaux visant à ce qu’elle continue de circuler ont été réalisés. En 1993 par exemple, une révision poussée incluant le remplacement de la segmentation avait été réalisée. La peinture a été refaite en 1995, dans une élégante teinte bleu-gris dans laquelle elle se trouvait déjà lors de son arrivée en France. La carrosserie est saine, bien que les soubassements portent les traces de sa vie antérieure. La sellerie en cuir noir est d’origine, tandis que le tableau de bord comporte plusieurs accessoires qui ne sont pas d’origine, à l’image, notamment, du volant ou encore des manomètres. La capote en alpaga a été refaite plus récemment et derrière les sièges se trouve une petite banquette d’appoint. Nous avons relevé l’absence du système de chauffage, très certainement inutile au Mozambique. Le propriétaire nous a confirmé que la voiture bénéficierait d’une révision de principe chez Mercedes-Benz avant la vente. En poursuivant un entretien régulier, cette automobile pourra continuer à circuler, l’amateur exigeant pourra, quant à lui, entreprendre une restauration afin de lui redonner son lustre de 1956.
