Some points worth noting. we bought the car in to restore to a concourse car and return to its original colour but we have too many projects so it will be 6 months before get onto this one. It is offered at a very reasonable price and for sale as a bought as seen car it is the cheapest RHD 190SL on the market today. fully MOT'd and roadworthy ready to go.

Small corrosion to the front and rear valance – easy fix
Various marks and small blisters on the paint
Floors have had welding done in the past. invoice on file 2002 Silvester coachworks - Both undersills. rear floor and foot wells.
Underside is solid and well protected with Waxoil.
Chromework is generally good but would benefit from bumpers doing
It has current MOT and every MOT in the last 15 years so It has been on the road all that time.



Nice driver and on the road. owned 15 years. used little in the last few and would benefit from a little TLC or even better return to original colour with a respray or restore to concourse as it deserves.

To sum up – a cheap entry into a good RHD 190SL and it won't be around long at this price. there won't be another RHD at this level either. We have no problem in keeping so no offers please.
