This 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL was reportedly purchased new via European delivery by a US service member, who later had the car shipped to California, where it remained under single-family ownership until it was acquired by the current owner around 2010. Finished in black over red leather, the car is accompanied by a black soft top that remains in its 1960-dated shipping crate. Power is provided by a 1.9-liter inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and equipment includes a body-color removable hardtop, 13? steel wheels, body-color hubcaps, and an AM/FM radio. This 190SL is now offered on dealer consignment as part of Mohr Imports’ Monterey Collection Sale with a tool roll, a black California license plate, sheepskin seat covers, an owner’s manual, shop manuals, and a clean California title. The car is finished in black and equipped with a driver-side mirror and a bright windshield surround, grille, and bumpers. A body-color removable hardtop is shown on the car in the gallery below. The selling dealer notes evidence of paintwork prior to the current owner’s acquisition, and photos of paint-meter readings are provided in the gallery below. Steel 13? wheels wear chrome trim rings, hubcaps with body-color accents, and 185/70 Michelin X thin-whitewall tires. The car is equipped with a double-wishbone front suspension, rear swing axles with coil springs, and power-assisted drum brakes. The low-back bucket seats are upholstered in red leather, which shows wear and was repaired in preparation for the sale. Additional interior equipment includes an AM/FM radio, lap belts, an analog clock, and a dashboard-mounted rearview mirror. The two-spoke steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer and a 7k-rpm tachometer as well as gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 4,600 miles and is noted to have rolled over. Approximately 1,500 miles were added under current ownership. The 1.9-liter M121 inline-four was factory rated at 104 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a fully synchronized four-speed manual transmission. Corrosion on underside components is shown in the gallery. An uninstalled black soft top remains in its 1960-dated shipping crate and will accompany the car. A tool roll, manufacturer’s literature, and shop manuals are included in the sale.
