This 1960 190SL has been sourced on behalf of an overseas customer with a view to full restoration.
The car was originally supplied new to Hong Kong and was imported to the UK in 1974. It was owned by a gentleman in Bristol who restored it to a driving condition.
We sourced the car for our customer from Southern Ireland. On stripping the car it was found to have a number of past poor restoration work to the floor pans & body. The only option was to strip the vehicle & remove all rusted panels so that the bead blasting process can treat rust in box sections.
Our brief is to bring the car back to it’s former glory to be enjoyed by the customer & his daughter in Australia.
