Patina monster/8: 1959 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL

And here is the eighth episode of the Patina Monster series: this time it is a 190 SL, black and red.

This car is in a condition that all classic car enthusiasts want: dry bodywork with no apparent trace of rust (and if there is, it is certainly surface oxidation that has not affected the deeper layers of the metal), full equipment and all apparently original.

Paradoxically, the black color, the most delicate and in need of attention on any car, is perhaps the color that best tolerates time: in this case it has become opaque (and God forbid) but it has not lost a single ounce of its charm: indeed, he bought some. even the bumpers are no longer shiny and yet they remain fascinating when placed in this context. The red interior and the sand-colored hood complete this picture which is now rarely found. Restore it? Not even thinking about it! Find it for sale here in Rancho Cordova, CA, with bidding at $35,000 and reseve not met.
