    While not exactly a 190SL kit it is likely one from a mid 50's 220 just like the title says.

    It is close and you could use most of what it has for a 190SL.

    YUP, check for something shorted. Like the points, or the wiring. Or missing fiber washers. As above look for those things that will cause no spark. I bet you find something wacky in the dizzy.

    $50,000 - $80,000

    "Seems" reasonable if the car really is as nice as the pictures make it. But, seeing is believing.
