  • History of the 190SL

    As the brainchild of legendary European car importer Max Hoffman, the first Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster was designed to serve as a more lifestyle-oriented complement to the outlandish 300SL Gullwing Coupe. Hoffman bet on the racing-oriented gullwing’s curvaceous shape, allowing both the hardtop coupe and the subsequent roadsters to share a design language that was unique to the Stuttgart automaker in the early 1950s. Both the six-cylinder 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL models were marketed, but the less expensive latter vastly outsold its “big brother,” proving that Hoffman's knack for success was unparalleled among automobile importers. Both the 190SL and the 300SL were virtually identical cosmetically in roadster form and thus gave birth to the legendary SL class of Mercedes-Benz models!

    The stunning 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster featured here is finished in the gorgeous factory correct color combination of black over a red leather interior and matching black folding convertible top. This particular example was sold new to an American Doctor in Spain and was subsequently shipped to his home in Texas in the summer of 1961. The 190SL remained in the dry state of Texas for the majority of its life until a few years ago when the marque specialists at Aventura Motors of New York commenced a full rotisserie restoration with meticulous attention detail. The restoration was commissioned for a prominent Mercedes-Benz dealer owner in Florida a no expense was spared! Today this classic Mercedes-Benz Roadster presents in spectacular condition while performing virtually like new! An excellent assortment of documentation is included with this investment grade 190SL including the owner’s manual, service manual supplement, data card copy from the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center and more! We are proud to offer this stunning 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the combination of style, performance and luxury that can only be found in Mercedes-Benz.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
