1960 Mercedes 190SL: In Need of Restoration

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

Currently up for sale on Bonhams, this car holds a special place in the lineage of the modern-day AMG SL 43. It was once owned by an engineer and avid automotive enthusiast named Bob, who had intended to restore the roadster himself. However, due to various circumstances, Bob was unable to fulfill his plans. Sadly, 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 become the current seller of the car. Realizing the potential and significance of this vehicle, they have decided to find a new custodian who can finally bring it back to its former glory. This car is now eagerly awaiting a new owner who is up for the challenge and willing to accomplish what Bob couldn't.
