Ad in Sundays paper for a 1959 190SL. They wanted $4000. First, I dont need another car. Second, I did not see it or know what was wrong. It had 50,000 miles BTW. I finally could not take it and called at 5pm. Already sold. Just seemed too good to be true.

It had to be a train wreck for 4K...

I have to agree with Ron on that,the cheapest 190SL "project" was sold recently on OZ ebay for $5000 and was'nt really even good for parts....
If it's a true sale ,GO FOR IT!!.
I have a friend who bought a 190SL at a sherriffs auction about 6 years ago,similar mileage for $16,000 and I thought that was seriously cheap.
SL's as a rule start at $20,000 with low mileage like that.
