The last of a nearly decade long production run, the 1963 Mercedes Benz 190SL is perhaps the most rare of the autos 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 United States and 50 being non-U.S. models. If you’re looking to purchase a 1963 Mercedes SL for your private collection, the team at The Beverly Hills Car Club – a California classic car dealership specializing in classic European and American cars – can provide you with the Buyer’s Tips you need to be successful in your search. While the quality of these cars was first rate, as were all Mercedes of the time, there are a few flaws in the design and engineering that are worth mentioning if you’re looking to purchase a 1963 Mercedes 190SL. First, due to its unibody construction, the Mercedes 190SL is vulnerable to rust. Buyers need to be keenly aware of rust problems and in most cases should walk away from any 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 purchasing. Areas to inspect include all wheel wells, chassis frame rails, trunk floors and spare-tire wells, and mounting points for the rear trailing arms.
Original mechanical components offer another view into the car’s history. Completeness is a major cost factor in the overall expense of purchasing a 1963 Mercedes Benz 190SL, so buyers should be aware of any restoration or work that has been done on the auto over the years.
