1963 Mercedes Benz 190SL

The last of a nearly decade long production run, the 1963 Mercedes Benz 190SL is perhaps the most rare in the Mercedes 190SL line. In fact, only 104 examples of the 190SL came off the production floor in Stuttgart that year, with 54 exported to the US and 50 being non-US models. If you’re looking to purchase a 1963 Mercedes SL classic car for your private collection, the team at ER Classics can provide you with tips you need to be successful in your search. While the quality of these cars was first rate, there are a few flaws in the design and engineering that are worth mentioning if you’re looking to purchase a Mercedes 190SL. First, due to its unibody construction, the Mercedes 190SL is vulnerable to rust. Buyers need to be aware of rust problems and in most cases should walk away from any Mercedes 190SL that exhibits extensive rust. A poor repair to areas were rust exists can only compound the problem, so be sure to have a thorough knowledge of what you are buying. Areas to inspect include wheel wells, chassis frame rails, trunk floors and spare-tire wells, and mounting points for the rear trailing arms.
