1959 MERCEDES-BENZ 190SL
This stunningly gorgeous 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster with its rare factory removable hardtop has just undergone an incredible no-expense sparred restoration, and is one of the most well documented in existence. Purchased in 1960 by a WWII hero B-26 bomber pilot who went on to graduate Harvard Business Schools Advanced Management Program and ultimately became executive vice president of Northern Telecom, this incredible car became the beneficiary of the owners war-tested military training and Ivy League business schooling; with every aspect of its existence and maintenance carefully documented year by year, decade by decade. The care and maintenance it received was incredibly extensive, as would be expected of a person who, among other achievements, oversaw the installation of the first phone system at Disney World. During his 54-years of meticulous care and pampering, this car received only the best, most advanced service available. It now makes its debut following an exhaustive, no expense sparred restoration which utilized only the finest, most correct materials and components available.; including new chrome, leather, carpet, wool, and paint in classic Mercedes-Benz White expertly applied and hand finished to standards exceeding that of the factory. Nothing has been left to chance. Nothing has been overlooked. This is simply one of the finest 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadsters available anywhere at any price. This exquisite model closely resembles its big brother, the 300SL in its styling, engineering, and detailing. Both have similar fully independent suspensions, making it an extremely attractive package; yet with values that for the moment are still attainable. However, 190SLs are quickly becoming one of the hottest collectibles on the market today, following the path blazed by its 300SL sibling with all indications showing that trend set to continue. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire one of the most attractive Mercedes-Benz designs of all time; one with incredibly well documented history, and a wonderfully executed restoration. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.
