Concours restoration

First shown in 1954, the Mercedes-Benz 190SL was intended to be a more affordable alternative to its exotic 300SL and its attached race pedigree.

In a buyer guide on the series, Cliff Chambers notes: "The 190SL was and remains a car for cruising to the coast on warm summer's evenings and making the neighbours - even in the most elite of neighbourhoods - envious. The cabin was spacious and beautifully-appointed with broad, fully-adjustable seats, framed wind-up windows, comprehensive instrumentation and the best hood in the sports car market."

The drivetrain is a 1.9lt inline four with four-speed manual transmission.

This example is said to have been restored to concours standard and has seen little use since then.

It’s with Oldtimer in Brisbane, priced at $369,950.
