A real gem - Mercedes Benz 190 SL 1961 delivered in the Netherlands, first owner, 87,000 km

Sometimes we find a real classic gem.
This doesn't happen often and certainly not so close.

We are proud to offer you this incredible Netherlands delivered, first owner, Mercedes Benz 190SL with only 87000 real kms. This is a piece of 190SL history that we will probably never see again. In addition, the complete history of the car is very well preserved.The car was purchased on 7 October 1961 by Mr. R. (abbreviated for privacy reasons) for his own company from the Mercedes Benz dealer AGAM Amsterdam-The Hague. The original purchase contract and the first registration document are both present in the extensive history file. The original purchase price was 17,000 Dutch guilders (equivalent to approximately 7,600 EUR or 8,880 USD). During the eighties, the car had a lot of maintenance by Mercedes Benz Amsterdam (the invoices are present) and the invoices state and confirm that the mileage of this unique car was 55,000 km at the time. In 1986 the car became private property of the owner (document available). The historical file confirms that an extensive restoration was carried out in 2004/2005. In 2013 and 2016 major maintenance was carried out by a well-known Dutch Mercedes classic specialist. Communication and invoices for all these activities are present in the extensive history file. In 1987 the owner moved to Belgium and took the Mercedes with him, which has since been proven by the Belgian registration. The history file proves that the owner, Mr. R, really loved his car and that he handled it very well all these years.

Because of his age, Mr. R. decided to sell the car this year (2018), after 57 years of ownership. He actually sold part of his life to us. We are very happy and proud to have had the opportunity to purchase this real treasure. The car is in very good condition regarding its age and especially its history. The paint and mechanical works were done in the 2004/2005 restoration. Many mechanical works were redone in 2013/2016. It was Mr. R. never to redo the 2 chairs; he liked the patina and originality of the chairs. They are still 100% original from the delivery in 1961. Carpet etc. has been renewed. Regarding the wonderful history of this car we leave it as it is and it is up to the next owner of this amazing unique 190SL to reupholster the seats or not.
