Hole in the pocket: 1960 Mercedes 190 SL

Yes, there are holes almost everywhere on the bodywork, evidently this car was parked outdoors or under a shed, probably also with holes in it.

However, under that layer of rust that you see there is still a 190 SL which, according to the seller, has matching numbers and also has a hard top, an uncommon and very expensive accessory, both at the time and today, if can you find it on the market.

Other than that, the seller says the car is 95% complete and the biggest part missing is a bumper corner. Now: Anyone who wants to dive into the business of restoring this car should know two things: Top examples break through the $300K ceiling, but on the other hand, these cars are extremely expensive to restore, so you have to do the math very carefully. Find it for sale at $37,500 here in Orange County, CA.
