1960 Mercedes 190SL Restoration Opportunity

The Mercedes-Benz 190SL is a classic roadster with a rich history and a touch of elegance. Dating back to 1960, one particular example of this iconic car has stood the test of time and is now in search of a passionate new owner who can restore it to its former glory.

Currently up for sale on Bonhams, this car, often considered the grandfather of the modern-day AMG SL 43, was once the pride and joy of an engineer and avid automotive enthusiast named Bob. Bob had plans to restore the roadster, but due to various circumstances, he was unable to do so. Unfortunately, Bob passed away a few years ago, leaving the car untouched for even longer.

Fortunately, a friend of a friend of Bob's has now taken the responsibility of selling the car. However, the car is still in need of a new custodian who can fulfill Bob's original vision and bring this piece of automotive history back to its former glory.
