Bidding now at $69,000 on eBay. Here's the seller's description:
1958 Mercedes 190 SL Roadster: Solid Arizona car; factory-original floor metal; numbers-matching engine and transmission; fully restored. All work recently performed: new base/clear paint in the factory color, new leather interior, new Coker factory reproduction tires, new canvas top, new exhaust -new new new - too much to list. This fine early Mercedes SL was stored in a Scottsdale, Arizona, garage for several decades, and not driven since the 1980's. We purchased the car last year and proceeded with a full restoration: The entire car was dismantled and the undercarriage was dry-ice blasted before work began; all panels were hand-dollied and hand-blocked prior to painting; every panel was wet-sanded and polished prior to reassembly; and all body rubbers and seals were replaced new upon reassembly. The entire interior is likewise brand-new, all mechanical systems were refurbished where needed, no expense spared. This car shows and drives superb, a beautiful restored driver that will retain its value, and draw appreciation wherever it goes. This is not an older restoration with chipped paint, aged rubbers, and worn leather - this work is all brand-new with no signs of wear.
