The M121 4-cylinder engine produced a modest 105 hp and it desperately needed another 50-even 30 would have done the trick
Available from May 1955, the 190SL convertible shared styling cues with its grander brother, the 300SL. It was a sports tourer, robustly built and designed for customers who preferred refinement over performance. Well-designed and sturdy, it’s still a decent daily driver. The car presented here is a fresh example of this desirable convertible. Just out of a rotisserie restoration, the engine bay and undercarriage illustrate the quality of the work.
The 190SL Convertible is finished in classic silver, and the interior features red leather and gray carpeting with a white Bakelite steering wheel in noteworthy condition.
