H&H Classics to offer 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SL
It is one of just 562 such models built across all right-hand drive markets and one of just 3,332 190SLs made during 1957.



LONDON.- There are some cars that just speak to your heart because of their beauty, history, lines, classiness, and aura of something special. Such is this 1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SL that has had a meticulous top to bottom restoration and is now for sale with H&H Classics at Duxford for an estimate of £150,000 to £200,000.

It is one of just 562 such models built across all right-hand drive markets and one of just 3,332 190SLs made during 1957. Albeit the Mercedes-Benz was not UK road registered until April 1958.

Damian Jones of H&H Classics, comments: “It has been the subject of an exhaustive two and a half year, photographically documented, ‘rotisserie’ restoration and is as good underneath as it is on top and the nicest example we have encountered. It is potentially Mille Miglia eligible.”

He adds: “This is a wonderful example and very collectable. And this is a car that could just continue to grow in value. It represents everything we mean by the word classic”.

Is it any sursprise then that the lovely Grace Kelly, the world-famous actress (and princess of Monaco) who starred in films like Rear Window, High Noon, To Catch a Thief, and Mogambo, used to chauffeur her friend Frank Sinatra around in her Mercedes Benz 190 SL.

She did much for the glamour of this Mercedes and partially due to her influence François Sagan, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Gina Lollobrigida, and Muslim leader Karim Aga Khan all drove the Mercedes 190 SL.
