I might be interested. Send pics - I'll PM you my email. For $25K I expect it to be very solid but not concours. The range of prices on these cars is wide. A 95% car vs. a 100% car could be the difference between $25K and $40K+, yet I can still find a complete original "survivor" with no rust for under $15K.

Search first, ask second!

I'd like to see pictures. I always wanted a 240D and I got a 220D and I love it. I also always have wanted a 190SL so maybe this is the one. I might be traveling to Houston periodically for my job so it would be fun to look at it.

They don't make anything like they used to. In fact, they never did.

Are you going to put up some pictures?

If you have a picture you could also email it to me. And if you could list the "needs work" stuff, that would help too. Thanks!

Well the paint is a little chipped in some spots, The reverse gear is intermittant (doesn't work), and the top needs replaced. Other than that it's a beauty! I'll have pics up by the end of the week. Thanks

In the late 60's my Friend had a 190 SL in Germany while I had a 356, S 90. I remember the engine as very lively (revving). Teutone
