    1957 190SL restoration in progress for sale

    I might have to Sell the SL in the middle of the restoration. I realize the penalties for not being complete but, this is not a basket case, and I won’t give it away.

    -All new floors
    -Sub frame blasted painted and reassembled with all new kits and rubber, shocks, brake lines, brake cylinders.
    -new soft top frame (yes new)
    -rebuild motor
    -body blocked and primmered
    -starter and alternator kit just purchased 2 days ago from the club store(forum can confirm this).
    -brand new Webber’s and all, adapters, fuel lines, pump, oil filter adapter,just purchase (Jeff from SLAuto can confirm)
    -front and rear bumpers rechromed

    All the lights and trim removed and boxed.

    Will need a windshield, door seals, soft top and seals, seats and carpet reupholstered. Windshield to be removed for paint.

    If it doesn’t sell by the weekend, it will be off the market. The car can stay at the body shop for paint if desired, just pay to spray it.

    Engine getting dressed.

    Might consider a trade for 1970’s Cessna 182, cherokee 6 300HP, or a 1970’s B36 bonanza with club seating.

    Yes she’s available (not cheap, but available) engine was dropped in yesterday. Club starter was checked prior to the engine install. New battery installed, cables, and alternator and starter wires where replaced prior. Starter worked beautifully, thanks @jim Villers.
